Reseat and check ALL cables. Reboot the ISP modem and router. Contact the ISP to analyze the signal, have a ISP tech come out to verify the signal, it may be outside equipment.

SOURCE: On and off line every 20 flashes.

Have you attempted to connect the internet after the router stops flashing? Do the lights start flashing again? If you do, then it would be considered normal.

If they don't and you do not have an internet connection, try the next step.

Next, plug your computer straight into the modem - Do you have an internet connection now? If you do, your router may require configuration.

SOURCE: I have an apple router.

It's a common problem with wireless routers, especially with certain ISP's, there's several theories about why this happens including cheap parts and software on the routers but it can be much worse if it's over a cable connection. Possibly because the MTU is higher on cable networks than wireless ones. This issue doesn't seem to affect wired connections to the routers as much. ie you may still get a working wired connection even if the wireless isn't working.

Certain makes are known to behave this way, with certain ISP's. eg in england there's a cable company called virgin media, belkin routers really don't seem to like them, but netgear seem to work much better, which is probably why virgin recommend netgear and will only supply netgear routers themselves.

Try changing the channel id if it's wireless, as there may be a lot of interference around you and this may or may not have a bearing on this issue. If that doesn't help then ask your isp what make they recommend as they should have an idea of what will work best, at least the tech support dept should.

In my opinion the best makes of routers are netgear and linksys. I also like belkin although they aren't as good as they used to be, and as mentioned can suffer from this problem quite badly in some cases. As you are with a cable

You will never completely eradicate this problem, all wireless routers will need resetting now and again, but it should be weeks or preferably months between each time. Cisco routers may be more reliable but they're business routers and are very expensive, and probably a bit more complicated to setup.

ps. I used to work for virgin media as tech support.

I just reset my dell computer back to factory setting. How do I now reset up for internet connection. My provider is verizon and I am using internet explorer


You want to reset your internet connection???
If yes then follow the given steps....

Step 1

Turn the modem so that the back of it is facing you. Locate the power supply cord connected to the back of the device.
Step 2

Gently unplug the power supply cord and leave it unplugged for about 10 seconds. If you also have a router connected to the modem, disconnect the power cord of the router as well.
Step 3

After about 10 seconds reconnect the DSL modem power cord. Wait for the status lights on the front of the unit to come on. They may blink at first before turning solid green, or they may first illuminate as orange, then turn green, depending on the modem model. The "Internet" and "Incoming" lights may continue to flicker, this is normal operation for modems.
Step 4

After the modem is reset, reconnect the router power supply if you have a router. Wait a few minutes before resuming normal Internet use.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell

N300 router has a steady orange blinking light


The blinking orange power light suggests that there is a problem with your modem. The modem should be plugged into the top ethernet port of your router. Try turning off your modem for 10 seconds and then turning it back on.

You have lost your connectivity between modem and router.

Be sure you always start your network in this sequence:

1. Turn off and unplug the modem from the power outlet. Next, turn off the wireless router
and computer.

2. Turn on the modem and wait 2 minutes.

3. Turn on the wireless router and wait 1 minute.

4. Turn on the computer.

If this does not work, come back to your post let me know and we will try a full reset.

The modem & internet lights on router are flashing orange. All other lights are solid blue. The Verizon DSL modem indicates it is working properly. Have re-set once. What do I do now?


Its your network that's causing connection problem!

1. Try to connect to your network after half an hour!

2. If the server is still busy, don't surf during peak hours! (surf @ night)

3. Change your ISP! (last solution)
