    Belkins usual Default Gateway is 192.168.2.1
    Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
    If you Start-->Run--> type cmd and press enter
    type ipconfig /all and press enter
    this should give you all the info.
    If you can transfer files without a problem it could be a DNS issue so
    if you are providing a static IP for the USB adapter make sure you input
    BT's DNS Servers IP severs into the appropriate boxes.

    Looking at your previous post you had Internet access for about 30
    mins.Have you run any Anti-virus or Anti-Spyware programs since just to
    make sure you haven't picked up something unpleasant, not unknown for
    some bugs to prevent access to common sites.

    Did you leave a space between ping and 209?

    209.123.109.175 is www.dslreports.com so I will go along with Frank and
    think you have a DNS problem although I didn't like the timeout.

    Try Start>Run> cmd
    ipconfig /flushdns

    Are you running a firewall on this machine? If so try disabling it and
    then see if you can access the Internet.

    Well I'm going to have to think about this.I am not sure why you can
    ping 209.123.109.175 but your browser can't display the page.
    What browser are you using and have you changed any settings from the
    default?

    Using I.E. and downloaded Firefox but both not working.
    I tried web addresses you suggested but "page can't be displayed".I've tried
    loads of other web addresses but always get same message.
    If i set TCP/IP to aquire IP address automatically,i get "limited or no
    connectivity"
    If i manually insert IP address,Subnet,etc i can connect with computer
    downstairs but can't connect to internet.

    What happens if you hardwire the laptop to the Modem or Router?

    Hardwired new computer and it still didn't work.
    I assume the router or adaptor isn't set up correctly?
