Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Your problem is that your computer cannot detect your wireless router. First we need to troubleshoot where the source of the problem is coming from. I think the problem is that your WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) antennas on your computer have lost its signal strength. To solve this problem, you will need to uninstall the card manually and reinstall it again. First, shutdown your computer and turn it over onto its bottom. If you are not familiar with this process, you will need to unscrew each compartment until you see the one that has your WLAN card configured in it. The picture below is an example of how a WLAN card looks on a computer. . You should see some wires connected to it; these are the antennas. Unplug these antennas and uninstall the card, then reinstall the card and replug the antennas (they are color coded, so just match the color with the plug). Rescrew the compartment together and turn the computer over. Restart your computer and check the network connection icon. You should be able to see the signal bars accurately. I hope this solution helps you. Please reply back if you are still receiving technical difficulties.
If the wireles light is flashing Amber .. Some one outside your house is trying to access the Wireless network . If it is always flashing amber.. try with a Firmware update available in belkin.com/au/support.

Wi-Fi base station: Understanding and resolving a blinking amber status light
Your Wi-Fi base station status light blinks amber. Here are some of the more common reasons that the status light may blink amber:
The Wi-Fi base station has not yet been configured because it is new.
The Wi-Fi base station has been reset.
A new firmware update is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
No IP address is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
A Wi-Fi base station in Extended Mode is out-of-network Wi-Fi range of a primary Wi-Fi base station.
The WAN Ethernet cable is unplugged from the Wi-Fi base station.
The Wi-Fi base station lacks a path to the Internet (or local router).
Internet access may be temporarily unavailable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Your AirPort Time Capsule has detected that the internal hard drive has reported a SMART error, and is failing (This requires firmware 7.5.2, and AirPort Utility 5.5.2).
A persistent, blinking, amber status light indicates that your Wi-Fi base station may require your attention. How to resolve a blinking amber status light alert
Launch AirPort Utility to determine why your Wi-Fi base station status light is blinking amber. Apple recommends that you use AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Mac, AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Windows, or a newer version of AirPort Utility if one is available.
AirPort Utility 5.2 or later opens automatically if your Wi-Fi base station requires your attention. You may also choose to launch AirPort Utility at any time. Do not use any version of AirPort Utility earlier than 5.0. In Mac OS X, AirPort Utility is located in the Applications > Utilities folder. In Microsoft Windows, AirPort Utility can be located by clicking Start > All Programs > AirPort. Note: You may also locate and download the latest Wi-Fi base station firmware and software by clicking here.
In the AirPort Utility window, locate your Wi-Fi base station and double-click on it to open the Summary window. Note: If you have more than one Wi-Fi base station, double-click on the icon for the Wi-Fi base station that has the amber circle next to it.
When the Summary window appears, double-click the amber circle to the right of Wi-Fi base station Status to open the Status window.
The Status window lists any conditions that require your attention. Respond to each item until there are no more items listed.
Important: You must reset the Wi-Fi base station using the reset switch to re-enable checking for the conditions you ignored.
Eliminating the blinking, amber status light may require making changes to a specific setting, or putting a checkmark in the "Ignore" checkbox beside any option you don't wish to change. A checkmark simply tells the AirPort that you are aware of the issue and you have chosen to ignore it. For example, you may wish to leave your AirPort open without a password so that anyone can join your wireless network.
Click Update to apply your changes (the Wi-Fi base station will restart).
After the Wi-Fi base station has restarted, the status light should be green and not blinking. If the status light stays amber in color and blinks after the Wi-Fi base station restarts, you may repeat the steps above.

dpr-1260 searching for ap and connected keeps changing back and forth when I refresh.On dpr-1260 if status of wireless keeps changing from searching and connected, change wireless to WPA, instead of WPA2. even if you have WPA2 setup (as I did), if you choose WPA it will stay connected.
check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)
if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,
