Question about Belkin Play N600 Wireless Dual Band Router (722868807453)
How do i fix it i have it plugged into the modem and the computer connects to the router but it wont connect to the internet
Alright. The orange light means the router has no problems with your inner (private) network or its internal configuration, but it can't connect to the internet by itself. So obviously, your devices, which are routed trough your router, won't be able either.
I've compiled a small list for things you can check to resolve this issue:
- Check if your ethernet cable is connected to your router. It can be a CAT5 DSL cable or a CAT5 cable from your modem, to your router.
- Log onto your router configuration panel on http://192.168.2.1/ or http://router/ by clicking log in at the top (the default password is blank). Should you get any problems with logging in, you might need to reset your router (button on the back, hit once for restarting and hold for 10 seconds for factory reset).
- Your problem is with WAN (Wide Area Network) or the outer network, so you will want to focus of that area of the configuration panel. Hit "Connection Type" and make sure you configure it accordingly to your ISP. If not sure, you can try and check the LAN/DSL configuration on another device that can connect to the internet via an ethernet port (the CAT5 from your ISP or modem) or just try the "Automatic" option.
- Check out the "DNS" section in the "Internet WAN" section. If unsure, try setting it to automatic. This will inherit the settings from a parent device in the network.
- Working with MAC addresses can be tricky. They are the fingerprint of your internet device (router, computer, LAN switches, modems) and some ISPs register your devices for security purposes. You should probably call your ISP and ask about it, if they need this configured specifically, they'll tell.
- If you're using a number of routers or a modem and a router you may need to change your LAN subnet mask or routers IP address in either your modem or one of your routers settings. This is only necessary if they overlap on multiple devices.
I have to say, though, 99% of the time it's either cables left unplugged or DNS misconfigured.

You need to start from beginning. Clear all temp internet files and run this programme Start>Run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. Get into the routers settings(probably 192.168.2.1) and ensure in the Lan settings that 'DHCP Server' is on and wireless is enabled.(you might need to be connected by RJ45 lan cable first) If it's a 125mbps router change settings to 54mbps to try that speed first(especially as your wireless cards will be 54 mbps) look in Mac address Filtering is off. Look in the DHCP Client list and see if your pc's were allocated ip addresses, if so it should allow an internet connection. Go to both your pc's wireless cards properties and under TCP/IP properties ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Restart both pc's and the router, disconnect cable and try wirelessly

SOURCE: Wont connect to the internet
Try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer: Go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Connections tab. Does it show your old dial-up connection in the list? If so highlight it and click on REMOVE. Close IE and re-open it. It should now use the Belkin LAN connection.

I have the same problem on my fd57633au the problem only appears when i use torrents.. i believe the modem cannot handle too many open connections (tho i am still unsure) currently testing now limiting outgoing connections and it appears to be working fine (i can normally get the moment to halt within 5mins)

you have to unplug your cable modem before you connect the router. after you have connected the router you plug the power back on the cable modem then the router and you should be able to browse the net
