What light does not come on? There is the power light and several other lights. Is there also an on/off switch on the modem itself?

Can't Connect To Internet

This has to be set up with a cable connected to it for the first time. Should be an install disk with this as well but if not you will have to get online somewhere and download driver.

My cable modem wont connect to the internet anymore.. all lights are on except the online light wich just continously blinks.. then when i go to logs it sais something failed what do i do?

I have a similar modem, my online light ( orange) blinks all the time, it is supposed to when you are online.
Have you checked your cable input, is it screwed in tight, how about where it attaches to the wall connector.
Unplug your power lead to reboot the modem.
Check your internet settings.
Control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings.
Is automatically detect setting ticked, if not tick it.
Is use proxy ticked, it should not be usually.
Have you a spare ethernet cable to check if that is a problem.
Still having problems? write back.
BTW i am in UK so some of the advice may differ for you

Router wont connect internet

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Modem light is blinking no internet light

hi, there are two ways to assit you on this issue.Either you can call belkin customer care which is a TOLL FREE no. on the product box and get assisted or else proceed with the following basic steps.
1. the product that you have is an obsolette.
2.Before troubleshooting the belkin product. Please connect your computer directly with the modem (without router)on the ethernet(lan) port and check for the solid lights on the modem after turning it on, after that check for internet connectivity, if you can go online, its fine else you need to contact your modem vendor and get fixed.
3. if u can go online, then connect your router isolated port to the modem amd your computer back to the router's lan port(port 1) and check for the solid internet,power,modem,lan lights on the router.
4. if all are solid lights , check you can go online else you can hold the reset button at the rear side of your router for 2 mins if you have a cable modem and then check for connectivity.
5. If you have a dsl connection , then better contact customer care, they assit you very well.
