There is another way to reset the router called hard reset..
you need to hold down the reset button for 45 seconds while its turned ON and don't let it go. After first 15 seconds, take the power cable out but still keep holding down the reset. After second 15 seconds, insert the power cable back in but still keep holding down reset. After last 15 seconds, release reset and turn off the router for 30 seconds.
0-15 = Power ON, Reset button Pressed in 15-30= Power OFF, Reset still Pressed in 30-45= Power ON, Reset still Pressed in
If it still doesn't work then you got a bad router, can't be fixed. :-(
If you aren't seeing any lights on the router, it's probably just not getting power. Make sure you moved the router's AC adapter (it may have been forgotten in moving everything else), and that it's plugged in to a working outlet and the router. If you don't have an outlet strip where all the computer pieces are plugged in and the router adapter is plugged into a wall outlet, see if it's controlled by a switch. (If the room doesn't have a ceiling light, at least one outlet will have a switch controlling it so you can turn on a lamp. Otherwise you'd have to stumble around in the dark.)
If the adapter is plugged in to a known working outlet, then the router or adapter has chosen this moment to go bad. It's unlikely, but possible.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off. 2.Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port. 3.Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC. 4.Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly. 5.Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure other settings.
What does this line mean? "It's reading all the other computers but isn't working."
Do you mean that the other computers are hard-wired to ports 1, 2, 3 & four on the back of the router? Or are you going totally wireless? Is your cable, or satellite modem plugged into the port labeled WAN?
1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router.
2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem’s power adapter. Shut down your computer.
3. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your modem and plug it into the WAN port on the router.
4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer.
5. Turn on or plug in your modem and wait for it to go through its boot cycle. It takes about 30 seconds. Watch the lights on the modem to tell when it has finished booting.
6. Plug the power adapter into your router. Again, wait about 30 seconds for the router to boot.
7. Turn on your computer.
8. Verify the link lights on the router. The power light, WAN light, and the LAN light for the port you plugged your computer into.
Now, open Internet Explorer (web browser) and in the Address line, type 192.168.0.1 and hit enter. You should see a login screen. Enter a user ID of admin and leave the password blank.
This should log you into the configuration utility for your router. You should see a Setup Wizard button that will walk you through setting up your router.
its possible that the router is not getting enough power, make sure that the power adapter that it's using the original power adapter that came with I think its 12v 1Am, you can plug it to a different power outlet, or better yet plug it back to where it was plugged in before. If the light will go solid again the it could be a problem with the power that it's gettign. If it will still flash then it's a fault with the router's firmware. click here to see how you can resolve it.
