How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection


  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.

    The only light on my router is the router light. No other lights are coming on. I have tried rebooting.


    When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:

    Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.

    Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.

    Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).

    Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.

    Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.

    Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.

    If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.

    All light are on (solid blue) except the wireless


    The wireless indicator (LED) only lights up blue when a it has a connection to a wireless device.

    Once a device (laptop, printer,etc) is configured with the settings that match your router, the blue light will turn on unless there is a physical proble with the router itself.

    Is this router new and you're trying to get it setup or was it functioning before and now there is a problem?

    Hi jackmyrtue,

    Here's what the lights on the front indicate:


    A. Wireless Security
    • OFF Wireless security is off
    • Solid Blue Wireless security is on
    B. Wireless-Computer Status
    • OFF Wireless computer is not present
    • Solid Blue Wireless computer is connected to the Router
    • Blinking Amber Problem with wireless computer onnecting properly to the Router
    C. Wired-Computer Status
    • OFF Wired computer is not present
    • Solid Blue Wired computer is connected to the Router
    • Blinking Amber Problem with wired computer connecting properly to the Router
    D. Router/Power Status
    • When you apply power to the Router or restart it, a short period of time elapses while the Router boots up. During this time, the "router" icon blinks.
    • When the Router has completely booted up, the "router" icon becomes a solid light, indicating the Router is ready for use.
    • OFF Router is off
    • Blinking Blue Router is booting up
    • Solid Blue Router is on and ready
    E. Modem Status
    • This icon lights in blue to indicate that your modem is connected properly to the Router.
    • It turns amber when problem is detected.
    • OFF Router is NOT connected to modem
    • Solid Blue Router is connected to modem and functioning properly
    • Blinking Amber Problem with modem
    F. Internet Status
    This unique icon shows you when the Router is connected to the
    • Internet. When the light is off, the Router is NOT connected to the Internet.
    • When the light is blinking amber, the Router is attempting to connect to the Internet.
    • When the light is solid blue, the Router is connected to the Internet.
    When using the "Disconnect after x minutes" feature, this icon becomes extremely useful in monitoring
    the status of your Router’s connection.

    • OFF Router is NOT connected to the Internet
    • Blinking Amber Router is attempting to connect to the Internet
    • Solid Blue Router is connected to the Internet

    I hope this helps figure out your PS3 issue.

    Router Security Light is Blinking


    Hello,
    I have the same symptoms. In my opinion, this is done because you turned your Belkin from a router to access point position. I did it also (issues with adsl modem/router). By manual the flashing diod means no secure device. But, without pass you can't access your Belkin. So, probably, some fault in firmaware.

    Nice day.
