Disconnect the router from the modem. Reset the router. Configure mac and router. turn off the modem turn off the router.turn off your PC. Reconnect router to modem. restart modem wait till green then start the router. then start your pc.
I am unsure what you mean @ the step "configure mac and router". The rest is ok to do, but how can I do that with the router disconnected from the modem?

Let's try setting the values directly and check to see if it has worked. All you need to do is connect to the Belkin (assuming it is working) so we don't care about routes or broadcast address. The following should be sufficient:
Code:
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.200 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
ifconfig eth0

Are you trying to configure your router. One a router is a device that links multiple devices together. you have a pci card that is a ether device.
you have a pci card that is a wireless ether device.
the best method is to use a eth0 wired line.
this is the gateway you type in your favorite browser. 192.168.2.1
or another is 192.168.1.1 depending on the model. if this does not let you access the router or ask for a password. it is time to look for a new router.
so run this command
Quote:
dmesg | grep error
and post it
now I also want you to run dmesg again after you try to connect to router.
I also want the name of your eth0 card and wlan card.
type lspci and look for the device. most of those commands have to be done with as admin or root. or sudo. then I want you to type lsmod
After I have this info I will be able to tell you if it is time to buy a new router.
1 dmesg I will find any failures to load firm ware and devices.
2 lspci will tell your devices
3 lsmod will tell me the modules loaded for the device.
4 ifconfig should show me all you net devices. not just one if you have two.
5. I want the last update you did if Ubuntu.
6 . if Ubuntu I want the kernel Version.
I know you may have given this info over the past. but after I get this info I will make a decision.
Buy new or fix your pc or have a trash a router party.

According to its User Manual which you kindly linked in this post the default IP address of this device is 192.168.2.254 (page 15).

There's one more step worth trying and that is to reload the router's firmware.

@catkin: Thank-you for your help. I had a glimmer of hope when you posted that last one...

@drakeo: To recap:
1-My main PC connected to the Belkin Wireless G F5D7230-4 router is running an up to date, Ubuntu 9.10. No I am not upgrading to 10.04. There is no wireless card in this PC, only ethernet. I do not need to configure wireless in this PC, only get the router routing for others to connect to it. The wireless was working fine after initial setup when I got the Belkin, until I broke it by trying to alter settings. 192.168.2.1, 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.2.254 as you suggested here do not work. It times out and says connection could not be established.

I am connected(wired.) Don't have wireless on this pc. Could try to connect from another n run it if you like. I assume the same commands will work from Puppy Linux?

Yes -- it does not sound like an easy procedure and anyway, even if you did reload the firmware, you still need to configure your computer to the right IP address to configure the router, same as now.

Is there another computer with a wired connection you could try with? Linux, Windows whatever? Setting the IP address and netmask is usually very simple (ha!).

from all the readings I see you are unable to reset this thing so you can use what ever gateway the router uses to access the simple html interface.
push the reset button in for 30 seconds then immediately unplug the power to it.
This works for me on most of the routers I have a hard time resting.
I really do not want to to make any more inputs till I know you can accesses the router with it disconnected from the cable modem and only connected to your wired computer. and make sure your computer is not connected to the cable modem also.

Just one connection computer to router with wire.

Once you are able to gain accesses to the router we will set it up to
clone your computers MAC address because that is how the cable companies work there connection by MAC address.
it is simple for them and less work. Plus they do not have to worry about different operating systems.
If you are unable to accesses the router spend 30 dollars for a new one.
I see your whole pci board has only one device. I was looking for conflicting devices.
