The router just doesn't stay on. When I unplug the power source at the back of the unit and plug it back in to reset it, the lights come on for about 10 seconds then the unit just dies again. Is it time to get a replacement from Belkin?

Try unplugging the router for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in. This will allow the router to reset its connections and should improve its performance. Also, try relocating the router to a more central location and pointing the antenna away from walls or other sources of interference.
Please let me know how you make out.
Netgear generally functions well. You may simply need to adjust the location of the router. Check the signal strength when you do have a signal. You may be losing a signal intermittently because the signal is weak. If your signal is "good" or better and the signal is lost without apparent reason, there could be a malfunction with the router itself. Check the router when the signal is lost and ensure the power light is on and the connection light is on.
If your signal is weak and you lose it intermittently, adjust the location of the router
If your signal is strong and you lose it intermittently, you may be experiencing a connection problem at the source or the power may be cutting out at the modem. The more likely answer is the source signal interruption. It is rare for a power supply to go bad in those.
Check the source connection INTO the router.
You can also reset the router. You'll want to unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the wall AND from the modem and leave it unplugged for at least 2 minutes. There may also be a very small recessed reset button (the kind that you need to use the end of a paperclip to press). Press and hold that for 10-30 seconds to reset while it's still plugged in.
When you plug everything back in, plug the power in first (to the wall and modem), then connect the source cable. Wait until you have a signal confirmation light, then try to connect with your computer.
Last but not least, the connection problem could be with your computer. Try pluging directly into the source if possible and see how that works. Then try just moving close to the wireless modem and see how the signal strength is and if you lose the signal the same way. If there is a switch on your computer to turn on the wireless feature, make sure it's all the way on. Sometimes these are kind of stuck between 'on' and 'off' and that can cause problems.
Hi Friend Please follow the steps to reset the router in a different way
1) Press the reset button for 10 secs and after that unplug the power cable from the router and wait for 10 secs 2) Plug the power cable back and press the reset button again for 10 secs and after that unplug the power cable from the router and wait for 10 secs 3) Plug the power cable back and press the power button for 10 secs again and unplug the power cable from the router for 10 secs
After trying these steps if you see the power light still blinking then you need to replace the router. Please call the customer care of linksys 1800 546 5797,they will let you know how to replace the router
HI! if reseting the router wont work by reseting it while its on.. do the hard reset, how? press the reset button while power is on and then after 10secs, unplug the power on the back of the router for 2secs and plug in while the reset button is still press, press it for 15secs.. then release.. leave it unplug for 10secs and plug in. if this issue wont fix, try to download the latest firmware for the router and upgrade the firmware.. after download is done, connect the router to ur computer and access the setup page of the router and do the upgrade..
First thing to try is to Unplug the Router from the power source for 10 seconds then plug it back in. If all lights continue to stay on you can try reseting it by holding a paperclip in the small hole in the back for 10 seconds and then letting it go. this will reset the unit to its factory default settings like you purchased new from the box. You will need to re setup the unit. the default IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and the default password is admin
