Call the cable company to come out for a service call... it sounds like signal issues... could be as simple as a bad splitter or connector.

Netgear wnd3700v3 has two yellow linght on and no internet

The internet port of the router needs to connect to the modem from your ISP. The two yellow lights are normal but if the internet light is off check the cable from the router's internet port to your modem.

Sometimes the modem needs to be turned off then back on again for the router to get an internet connection (IP address).

Solid yellow Internet light on D-Link DIR-825

Try a new working LAN cable between your internet modem and the router. Is your internet modem connected and working? You should be able to directly connect using a LAN cable to check the modem connection. Reboot your modem and router.

Pushed the stand by button but that didnt help me grt the online to work

Make sure that all of you connections on your modem are plugged in (you should see 4 green lights and one blinking yellow/amber light). If you only have one amber light, press the standby button again. If the modem still is not working, check to make sure that the coaxial cable from the wall is tightly (hand tight) screwed into both the wall and the back of the modem, unplug the power cord and wait about 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Give the modem time to boot up (about 2 minutes usally) and try to connect to the internet again.

I plugged all my cables from my modem to the router and the internet is still not wanting to work on my laptop. Im still confused as to which plugs go where.


Please follow the physical connection setup to get your connection working,

1. Connect the modem cable to the router in the yellow color slot

2. Connect your computer to any one of the grey slot of the router

3. If your Internet Service Provider is cable provider (like Comcast, Cablevision) , then
unscrew the coaxial cable(TV cable) from the cable modem and unplug the power cable from the modem also unplug the power cable of the router then wait for 1min .

4. After a minute first screw in the coaxial cable and the power cable to the cable modem and wait till all the lights comes up on the modem , then turn on the Belkin router.

5. Then the light on the router will be Green , You will be able to access the internet .

Let me know it it works!

Thanks in Advance!

From the walljack to the modem, use the gray cable.
