Cables connection might loosen up. Check cables that runs from the wall jack going into your modem, make sure all cables are tightly plugged in. Also, check indicator light on your device. If DSL light is RED, OFF, flashing red, flashing green. there might be trouble with your Internet provider. DSL light indicator MUST be always on STEADY GREEN. If you see that the DSL light is not on STEADY GREEN status call your Internet service provider.
if the wireless light is lit up in red it says "someone is trying to connect to your network using wrong password"
Sometimes if any of your devices are not compatible with the security enabled in the router then the light will lit up in red. click here to know more about security types of belkin router
routers has to be turned off atleast 2 hours per day for it to work properly...
so better turn off the router when not in use, this will clear the routing table of your router and will make the router to work as a fresh router everyday, so you wont face any speed problems.
Makes sure the cable connecting your router and modem is an Ethernet Cable..... and also make sure it is connected in the right port which would be symboled by either the word Internet being by it or the word Ethernet..... Some times there is a light inside where you stick the cable in, make sure that is lighting up.... Also buying a new Ethernet Cable could fix the problem...... What type of Router do you have?
Can't seem to find the manual on it but.... Most DSL/Routers have a connection setting in them with 2 settings. 1) On demand (Connects to internet as needed) 2) Always on (Stays connected to the internet)
First you need to configure the wireless settings on the access point using the network cable. Do you know how to login to the access point as administrator to setup the SSID, and WAP encryption? Don't forget to change the default password.
To make your access point secure from hackers, turn off SSID broadcast and use MAC address filtering to stop all wireless access to your access point except for the MAC address of your wireless card.
Second, is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless detect the access point and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the access point's SSID and encryption settings.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.
OK. First of of all, the only light that should stay solid on your router is the power light. All the others are activity lights. They show network traffic through the connections. Second, if you're going to power cycle the router it's a good idea to power cycle the modem as well. Just so you know, I know they sell and promote all kinds of wireless things for xbox 360 but it's best to run it with an ethernet cable. Better results. So, try this: Unplug your modem and router, wait about 60 seconds. When all the lights have come back on the modem (excluding the activity light ) plug in your router. See what happens and let me know.If this fixes your problem, please rate this as fixed. If it did not, then don't rate it yet. Just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.
