The orange globe? Have you Checked ALL cables and reseated ALL connections? If so Contact your ISP to test the signal, have a ISP tech come out to analyze the signal.

SOURCE: My Mac is suddenly not recognizing my wireless

You have to resolve whether it's the router, the wireless in the router or the wireless in the mac.
The flashing orange may be an indication (what does the d-link guide say - look on the CD that came with it)
Try connecting the mac to the router with an ethernet cable - there should be one in the box. The mac will automatically pick up the router if the wireless isn't working. Can you connect to the net now? If you can, then the router is working OK. If not then the router may well be corrupted. Reset it by pushing the end of a straightened paperclip into the tiny hole on the back of the router. It may be labeled 'reset' but if not check the CD again to ascertain where it is.
Most likely you will have to reinsert you broadband log-in and password (and make any other changes that had been done. (wifi security setting etc.) If the transmitter comes on, you should see the network d-link?? appear in the airport menu.
If you still can't connect (or can't see the router in the airport menu) then you need to use another computer (or an iPhone or iPod Touch) to see if the transmitter can be seen by them. If not then it is most likely that the router is not transmitting. If they can, then the problem lies with the airport in the Mac.
That can be more problematic to resolve. So I'll stop now.

SOURCE: Globe symbol won't turn green.

I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.

This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)


1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.

2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.

3. Went into the DLINK configuration 192.168.0.1 and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.

4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.

5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router

Orange globe keeps appearing on my dlink dir655 and it disconnects internet


First try replacing your LAN cable between you internet modem and the router. A bad cable the is intermittent may cause this issue. Try rebooting the modem. Also if possible try a direct connection to your internet modem by LAN cable or wireless and see if your connection stays up. You could have a bad internet modem or other connection issue from your provider

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset.

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.

The globe keeps flashing orange and I can't connect to the internet because of this


The blinking globe means that the router no longer has access to the Internet. The two most common causes are that:
  1. Your Internet connection is down, or more likely,
  2. You Internet provider has changed your IP address the the modem or router need to be reset to acquire the correct address.

If by "reset", you mean you have done a factory defaults reset by pressing and holding the RESET button down for 15 to 20 seconds, then it sounds like your router has failed.
If you haven't held down the RESET button on the back for 15 to 20 seconds, then try that. If that doesn't return the router to working order, then the device is defective.
You should be able to get a warranty replacement.
