|What is this device?|
Cross-over or straight thru may not matter if either device has cable sense. But if both do, they may fight each other a bit.
It sounds like you have connected to the device directly before, and you are just looking for a way for your wireless devices to be able to connect to it.
If networking it is really not your goal, there are probably USB or HDMI to Ethernet adapters you could get.
If you connected to the device directly before, was its address also 192.168.0.2 at that time?
What I want to know is does the device have a static address or is that the address that the Belkin Router assigned to it?
Connect to your router's page and see if the device is listed in the DHCP list. Verify it against the MAC address labeled on the device itself.
Your router may not like that you have a device with a static address in the range of addresses it can assign for DHCP.
Or is the device itself a DHCP server?
See if you can ping it from the command prompt (ping ip address) and then check your arp cache (arp -a) to see if the MAC address shows up there.
You could also try to ping it like (ping hostname) and see what ip address it does report.
Also if the device has a static address, is the subnet mask on it the same as on the device your trying to connect to it with?
