I have a Broadband connection (wired) with a modem (not wireless). I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 which works only on direct wifi so I bought a Belkin Basic N150 router (compatible with 802.11g). Now the problem is I am unable to access internet simultaneously on desktop and Tab.

I have the main internet wire (Ethernet - White color) attached to the router and the Modem and the other wire (yellow) attached to the computer from the router.

I am not sure if I need to go through some settings. Please help.

Did you change any of the settings on the device since you bought it? What IP address does each device get? – cybernard Apr 6 '13 at 16:02
so you are not using the old modem? – dashboard Apr 6 '13 at 17:02
