Netgear wndr3300 blinking orange light

It depends. Have you checked the Netgear support site for FAQ and the manual. In some routers, orange lights indicate wired 100Mbps connections while green indicates 1000Mbps. In other cases, blinking lights indicated that the router is 'bricked'.

Blinking orange light where tghe wifi is

The light indicates that the printer's trying to connect to a wireless network. If the blinking wifi light has been going on for quite some time now but connection is still not going through, you will need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. To reset the network adapter on Lexmark X6570, press Settings button > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Factory Defaults. The wifi light will momentarily turn off then on and should be solid orange then. Try to reconnect the printer for wireless connection.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4

Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

I have a lexmark x6570 all in one printer. I recently restored my pc and I unistalled my printer. Then I reinstalled it again. Now the WIFI light is blinking orange.

If the printer is blinking with a orange lights means that the printer is not connected to your wireless network. Some possible solutions:

Check the wireless connections (If you've restored your computer you have to set the wireless connections again)
Check the access point
Move your computer or printer to reach the access point
Try adjusting the antennas
Make sure the Key Web keys are correct.

Another blinking situations (not wireless related)

If the printer is blinking in a slow mode, then the printer is in a sleep mode.

Do this:

1) Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet
2) Wait 10 seconds and plug the cable again
3) Press the power button to turn on your printer

This must be fixing the problem
