The router must be connected properly to the pc and set up to function properly first. Usually the pc is plugged into port 1 while the internet connection is plugged into the main "Green" labeled port which is spaced further away than the other 4 ports. If that's done properly then you have a few software issues depending on the ISP he is using. For instance, Road Runner doesn't really care what you use, however Yahoo DSL has issues that must be configured to make the modem communicate properly with the router. Does he see the wireless network with his laptop? Is he using 2 pc's, one hard wired to router and a laptop or just the laptop? If he's using just a laptop then you have a specific setup procedure that must be followed, contact the mfg of the modem, belkin's usually pretty good with walking you through the setup.

Hi jaijeetc, There is no need to worry about a hardware problem. The orange light is just telling you that you didn't have an internet connection. So no, there is no need to worry about a hardware problem. Cheers, Alex
