    Try typing a "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /renew" If that doesn't work, then reboot all equipment.

    If this is a home computer, then turn off all equipment (Computer/laptop, Router/DSL Modem/ cable modem), then turn on the DSL/Cable modem first. Wait 5 minutes, then turn on any Switches/Routers, wait 5 min, then turn on your PC.

    If you have Vista, then you may need to run CMD as administrator in order to run these commands.

    Unless you have changed any settings anywhere, the Belkin home router would typically distribute IP addresses to connected computers.
    Check in your network settings that your computer is set to "receive IP settings" automatically.
    Umm. Your question indicates that you're using an ethernet cable between your computer and the router. Check that the cable is connected and that the small lamps next to the cable inlet on the router start flickering when you connect the cable.
    If you were expecting a wifi connection then maybe you've disabled wifi on your computer, one way or another. (could be a little button somewhere)

    What type of connection? ethernet, usb, wireless? have you tried resetting router? is nic dhcp enable or static? is dhcp working on router or disabled? lease times of dhcp? Plug into right port, LAN vs WAN, etc..as you can see there are several possibilities. Any additional information will help.
