Internet connects, however when we try and view a page it doesn't work. The amber light shows when it is not working properly. We have rang our ISP and they have done various things and it doesn't...


Is this a cable service?
It is possible you have a bad connection. Either inside the house or outside.
Cable.. You will have a cable modem connected to the cable.
One main thing to do is to re-trim all the ends of the cable at every connection point between the modem and the outside connection. Replace any old connectors or splitters with new ones of correct value. The idea being to remove any oxidation which will impair the signal. If none of this helps, you may need the outside wiring looked at. Your connection service should do this at no charge.
If you have not done so, power off the modem completely, including removing the battery back up.
Wait about 20 seconds. Reinstall battery and power connection. About 20 -30 seconds to reconnect.
"few hours everyday" might indicate a problem outside, (wiring or junction box) possibly warming up in sun and cooling later?
On the PC. Use the connection wizard to "connect to a network". Connect to your own network on every pc you use.

The internet is disconnecting that means the problem is with the router. you also said that the router is getting hot.
I think probably you can try to upgrade the firmware of the router.
Or if it is a new router then try to get it replaced from the store.

I don't know how to connect my router. please help


If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.
