Interesting info, but I don't have a Belkin router, just a Belkin wireless adapter.
For the AT&T U-verse router, its address is 192.168.1.254,
its router control panel is 192.168.1.254,
and its DHCP assigns addresses in the range 192.168.1.x.
When I look at Dell 8200 desktop running Lubuntu 14.04,
it says DNS host is 127.0.1.1.
After I translated AT&T property names to Ubuntu property names
the Netgear WNA3100M wireless adapter connected to the AT&T router.

Your Belkin n300 router defaults to 192.168.2.1 for your local area network. http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?articleNum=8117 This should also be the DHCP address and DNS address on your local network (including your wi-fi connections). You should be able to plug a computer into the router using RJ-45, run a browser, and access the router control panel at 192.168.2.1. DHCP should be enabled in the router and the computers. If it is not, you may have to manually assign the computer an ip address in the 192.168.2.x range, After that you should be able to connect usb-wifi computer as described in attached pdf. All your computers, including wifi connections, should receive ip addresses in 102.168.2.x range. Typing ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew at a dos prompt, should resolve many ip address problems. Once you have confirmed everything works, you can start chasing any remaining linux issues.
