I've tried pings, they go nowhere, I will check my Firmware revision but the
router itself reported firmware was up to date.
When I do IPconfig there is no IP address listed, no gateway and no router.
I tried setting a manual static IP and didnt get anywhere, i have checked
MAC address filtering as well.

I will check NIC drivers, but wouldn't those give an issue with ANY
connection, not just a specific router?

The only thing that I can find so far is that the Belkin does not appear to
support TKIP encryption, onle AES where the linksys does both.
