my wireless N router is not recognized at my pc . the setup page doesnt work, the wireless light is off basically nothing is working.

You can try the following steps..
1) At the back/base of the router there will be a small hole/button as reset..press and hold it using a tooth pick or paper clip and hold it for 10 seconds..disconnect the power from the router and connect it back after 10 seconds and check whether the setup page works. 2) If the above step doesn't work press and hold the reset button for 40 seconds..after 40 seconds while still holding the reset..disconnect the power cable(keep holdin the reset) and connect the power back after 40 seconds(While still holdin the reset) and then let go of the reset button disconnect the power for 10 seconds and connect it back and check if the router setup works.
The wireless light will be lit only after a computer is connected to your wireless network. If the above two steps didnt work it looks like the router may be fried. You can get it replaced from Belkin as they have lifetime warranty on this product. The number is 1800-223-5546.
Hope this helped.

Occasionally I cannot go online because my computer says no internet access. I unplug the router for 30 seconds, plug back in, then it is working properly. Is the router defective? I have had the router maybe 3 years.

It could be your router is becoming intermittent, but also your ISP connection could be dropping and not resetting properly. I have this issue occasionally and it is the ISP generally dropping my connection. Only way to test is to try a known good router and see if it corrects the problem. With data speeds increasing it is getting more difficult for the ISP to provide reliable service especially over ADSL. I went 5 years without EVER resetting my ISP connection, then started having increasing difficulties with my connection in the past 3-4 years due to higher data rates being introduced.

#1 Unplug the router, wait 30 second, plug it back in, let it reset, then see if you can connect.

#2 Right click your wireless connection, view wireless networks. Click on your network, then if the button says connect, try to connect to the network. If the button says disconnect, then disconnect, then after the network lis refreshes, click your network and click connect.

Unable to actually connect to the internet?

Have you tried restarting your router? If not, try unplugging the ac power from the router, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That will usually take care of this problem. If that doesn't work, you can try going into "manage your wireless connections", delete your wireless network from the list, then reconnect to your network.
