    Hi

    Not a very computer savvy guy but my wireless belkin router literally came
    out of the box ,plugged in and I'm on the broadband connection.

    One thing though to connect I seem to have to go into 192.68.2.1 an then
    connect each time through the Belkin setup.

    Is there a way to do this via a desktop icon, the internet explore icon
    would be nice.

    Thanks a lot

    Ian

    right click on the desktop

    select new -> shortcut

    location = http://192.168.2.1

    name = Belkin Config (or whatever you want to call it)

    Done!

    It should stay connected shouldn't it? Is there a save button in the
    config? I think you're working around a problem rather than fixing it,
    kind of like wrapping a towel round a leaky pipe!

    You Can make the Belkin Router connect by using an IP number in your
    Browser, not a Webb address.I use http://195.92.249.131 Which is the Wanadoo
    home page.

    Thi saves you having to go to the router itself.
    You can make the router stay connected by setting the idle time to Zero in
    the router connection information box.

    Hope this helps Dave
