Well you need to check how the security is set on the Belkin router under wireless security. It will be WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, the PSK is pre-shared key. It will have the choice of TKIP or AES for the encryption type. However what is set on router must be matched by your wireless network card on the laptop. So you need to be connected to the router with a cable to check the router settings. See how it is configured or reconfigure the wireless security portion with settings you remember. WPA2 is the best to use, you just make up a pass phrase like "my white dog spot"

If things are set correctly, when you try to connect wirelessly you will be prompted for a passkey which is the phrase you typed into the router (or the existing one if you know it).
