Wireless LAN button won't switch off.

Most Netgear routers have a recessed button on the back or bottom panel, marked "Reset" or "Restore Factory Settings". Because the button is recessed, you will require a thin tool to press it. Most people use a straightened paperclip.
  1. Power up the router, and wait for it to complete booting up, typically about one minute.
  2. Press the Reset or Restore Factory Settings button until the test or power led starts blinking. This takes about 20 seconds. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the reset was not successful, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the Reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

Not able to connect the extender to my apple time capsule? no wps button. can i use this extender?

Hi, yes you will be able to use the Netgear range extender with the Apple Time Capsule, provided you configure the Time Capsule's wireless settings based from the wireless security you have setup on the Netgear router or extender. No need for WPS button. Just treat the time capsule just like another wireless laptop.
For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->>

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

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 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.

Router connects to the internet using cat 5 cable but not wirelessly today. Worked fine yesterday. Icon in system tray has my home network connected, but, it says "no internet"

try pinhole resetting the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds, then pull the power, then press and hold it for 30 more seconds, then plug the power back in.. then press and hold it for another 30 seconds and let go.

Try connecting wireless again, if this doesnt work the router is broken. Get a new one.

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.

My old 2wire 2701hg-b router went bad and I replaced it. I had a netgear wgr614 attached to it for a second network and now i can not get the netgear to attach although all lighs appear okay Showdave


Its just locked up as it can't see your old router, 2 resolutions:

If you have have backed up your config settings for the router or you don't have any set then press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, now let go and power the router off, now power the router off and back on again>this will reset the router back to factory defaults and you now connect back up to the router but you will have to setup your broadband logon again.

The second option is to connect the router via an ethernet cable and reset the router and it should let you connect wirelessly again.
