So you want to go from a wireless to a wired connection? Just connect the patch cable and Windows 7 should walk you through it. You may need to choose to disable the wireless adapter or remove it.

If nothing happens when you connect the patch cable then remove the wireless adapter while shut down and then reboot.

my windows 7 has the Belkin router installed. The windows xp has the Belkin adapter installed. Which of these units should i use to add the networking cable instalation process? Do i need to uninstal one or the other, or, both? By Belkin saying my router is older, and does not come under support anymore, i do not want to destroy a working process now. I am only trying to make my internet on the windows xp, as fast as my windows 7 computer. Just want to know how to hook up, and do this.

Connect the cat 5/6 patch cable from the router to the computer.

Go to Control panel> Network and sharing center> Connect to a network. Then follow the prompts to use the wired connection.

You may see an option to always use the wired connection. I suggest you do that.

I don’t THINK you need to abandon the wireless connection at this time.
