About A month ago I decided it was time to re-upgrade to cable internet. We went through A long problem of them not having A cable for our house anymore... blahh blahh blahh, but that doesnt matter. Today we finally got the modem ect, but the problem is that one of my computers doesnt like my router very much.
Before I go into detail:
Both computers have windows xp, and the one working (the o ne i'm on) is sp2 and the other sp1.
Router is A belkin wireless G+ (Model number: F5D7231-4) with an open connection using 128-bit WEP.
Today I called Belkin's tech support and basically it was A 30 min arguement on how what I did is impossible :
I was asking if it was possible to connect the computers to the router with the need to EVER hardwire the modem or router to the computer. They said no. 30 minutes later I hang up upon discovering that it worked on this computer.... all I did was connect the modem to the router and then type in it's ip address, and lastly configured it. For some reason though my other computer would not connect. It recognized the router, and the fact it needed A WEP key code (in which I typed in numerous times) but acts as if it gets no signal from the router. I no there must be some communication though, do to the fact the it never asked for the WEP key until I configured the router for it.
Someone please help me with this. I'm entirely confused.

I believe that the problem might be that the motherboard is going. I recently had to through out A burner thinking it dead, but now this is happening so it might be more than coincidental. If anyone can prove this thery wrong, or right it would be appreciated.

I looked under some more settings of the network card and found that the signal strength from the router is "Exelent" but there is still no actual connection.
