"Rowder" = "Router"
Are you saying that you can't open any web page at all?

First, try a wired connection. This will verify your router is working properly. You have a valid IP address (192.168.2.3) so we know you're connected to the router.
Can you connect to the internet using a wired connection? (This may require you to recycle the modem-just remove the power plug for 10-15 seconds).
Are you getting any errors? Is encryption enabled? You should disable encryption until you have a good wireless connection.
You have IPV6 enabled, and this can cause problems.

Patience, patience. This is the wonderful world of windows, designed to try your soul in the cauldrons of Hell. You'll emerge as a better person.
Try the wired connection. We need to know if your router is connecting to the internet.
Post ipconfig /all again.
Post the exact model number of your router.
Post the exact model of your computer.
Don't forget to power-cycle the modem.

thankyou so much for sticking by me and helping !

Do you have a firewall enabled? If so, turn it off for now.
Check at the Belkin site for a firmware update.
The ASUS site is down at the moment, so I'll have to check them later. If you get a chance, check for a driver update for your wireless card.
Your IP configuration seems to be correct.
You might want to uninstall the wireless card in Control Panel/System and reboot. This sometimes helps.
And please: There is no such device as a "Rowder". It's a "router."
I'll check back with you later.

A few hours later-
It occurred to me that you may not have set up this wireless connection.
You can use the Wizard in Network settings, or just right-click the wireless icon in the system tray/View Available.
Select your connection and click "Connect".

believe me, thats the first place i looked, and the strange thing about this is, it is connected, it says there is a strong connection, but the internet browser for some reason does not work.

0

You're connected to the router, but not the internet.
To check this:
Start/Run/cmd
ping www.yahoo.com
If you get a reply, you're connected. If not (Times Out) no connection.
There's not much left but power cycling the modem and router and checking for a firmware update for the router.
You could try Firefox, just in case there's something weird about IE.

well, i installed Mozilla Firefox onto my laptop, and i am proud to say the internet is now working =]=]=]=]=]

it was internet explorer all along, and i just deleted it, never using it again babbyyy.

thankyou so much for your help.

You can't really delete IE, as it's part of the operating system. When you have time to experiment, open IE/Tools/Connections and make sure the entries are correct.
While you're there, click ion the "Advanced" tab and reset to defaults..
Some web sites won't work properly in FF, so be sure to get the " IE View" plug in.:

Glad to hear all is well.

Hi,

I had the same. Problems were caused by Norton internet security. If you happen to use that, remove it.
