Re: Belikin N series router, the ''wired'' icon is...
It turns out that im not as stupid as i first thought????
I plugged the ethernet lead back into the router and my laptop and the orange "wired" flashing light that has been bugging me has now gone out.
I thought that maybe it was flashing for me to update the firmware but it must have just been a hiccup??
All is well now though. If it happens to anybody else then please try the basics that i tried first.

Orange signal signifies some bug in the router
You can reset the router using a paper clip and then check if it turns Green/Blue.
Also you can try to upgrade the firmware on your router
Even then if wifi light is orange, its a hardware failure
Try this: 1. Go to settings on your wireless router via Internet Browser. 2. Right click to the wireless icon connected on the menu bar. 3. Select status>Support tab>Obtain your default gateway address ( e.g. 192.168.1.1) 4. Enter your gateway address to your Internet Browser. 5. And there's settings for your router. (keep it mind to make sure you protected, change your password for your router, and make WPA encryption for your WiFi.
If the router has test light continously flashing then tha indicates hardware failure with the router. Try resetting the router using steps below:
At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which has a small button inside it). Press the button with the help of a paper clip. Press it and hold it from 30 seconds and after 30 seconds without releasing the reset button take out the power cable from the router and wait for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, without releasing the reset button plug the power cable back to the router and keep holding the reset button for another 30 seconds. Now, release the button and take out the power cable wait for 5 seconds then plug it back.
If the issue persists, then it is time for you to purchase a new router.
If your router is not wireless capable you need to add "wireless access point" on your network so that your wireless computers will be able to connect wirelessly to your network. You can buy WAP54G of Linksys or other brand of WAP(wireless access point).
You will have to use a paper clip or a similar pointed object to do the reset procedure.
Hard reset: Insert the paper clip to the reset button and hold it down for 15 seconds, while the paper clip is still in unplug the power cord that goes in to the router, now wait for 15 more seconds and then give the power supply back to the router, again wait for 15 more seconds and finally let the clip go. You will see the router's LEDs flashing. If this happens it means that we have successfully completed the reset.
Soft reset: Login to the router, go to the Tools menu, click on configuration tools and select the option restore router to factory defaults to reset the router.
