Yep. It seems that for the time neing, i'm stuck on my damn android. The router on my compuer went out unexpectedly, and now i'm stuck with absolutely no way to upload anything, much less play anything online. I wish there was a way to get the thing working again, just to see if the thing was totally fried. If anyone at all could help, it's a "Belkin G Wireless Adapter." Oh, modem works fine. Router trouble, that's it. :|

I mean, it appears to be working, but when you plug it in, all lights turn on automatically without a wait, which is not normal. I t usually has to load up each light one by one. The internet light does not flash, and is a solid green. The internet only works when the modem is diretly connected to the computer, instead of through the router. Also, strangely, the router gets quite warm, even when you first plug it in.
It sound like some internal component has lost it's magic smoke. I had one Belkin Wireless-G router enter into a suicide pact with it's switchmode plug pack and three others simply refuse to behave after a while, so that's a brand I no longer buy. If you're happy with Wireless-G and your current modem, shop around for a Linksys WRT54GL.
EDIT - If you want a laugh, here's my rant on the subject.
I'd honestly recommend a D-Link router - the one I use is a WBR-2310, which has wireless G support and probably one of the friendliest configuration interfaces I've seen. Considering its primary competition is the (mandatory) Frontier Communications-provided ActionTec router, that's going a long way.
