SOURCE: My WAN light keeps flashing while the M1 amber light remain fix at ON(M2 amber light = OFF)

You must have done something wrong when upgrading the firmware. because there are pre-requisite settings on the computer before performing an upgrade. Like setting static ip and forcing  card to 10mb/half only prior to upgrading. If this flashing is unusual, then you mightn have damage the wan port.

just to let you know, wan port will really flash but not that continous.

I received this solution from Belkin. It worked for me & I hope it does for you. Good luck!

Belkin solution:

Please follow the details given below:
1. Please contact your internet service provider to know the connection type details (Is it PPPOA,PPPOE, Dynamic or static)
2. Belkin router F5D8633 ADSL router works only with ADSL broadband connection and does not support Cable broadband connection.
3. Do not use the Setup CD Assistant; reset the unit and configure it manually. Make sure to set the correct VPI/VCI values in the process as the default settings may not be correct.
4. When using PPPoA, always use VcMux encapsulation, when using PPPoE, always use LLC encapsulation. Keep the VPI and VCI as 0/38.
5. Please follow the instructions given below to configure the router manually:
- Connect the phone line direct to the router, or through the filter.
- Connect the computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
- Switch off the router and power it back after 5 seconds.
- Restore the router to factory defaults by holding down the reset button on the back of the router.
- The power light will flash and then come back ON solid, indicating that the router is being restored to factory defaults.
- The corresponding lights on the router should be lit-up.
- Check if the computer has an IP address in the range of 192.168.2.x
- Click on `start` & click `Run`.
- Type in `cmd` & click `ok`.
- Type `ipconfig` and Enter. Check for IP address, subnet mask & Default Gateway.

Then follow the below instructions to reset IE.
-Open Internet Explorer
-Click on Tools -> Internet Options
-In the General tab, click on Delete Files under Temporary Internet Files
-Click on Clear History
-In the Connections tab, select Never Dial A Connection and click on LAN settings

- By default the password is blank.
- Click on Connection Type and Reconfigure the connection on the router (using your ISP details).
- Save the Changes.
Note: Please obtain the correct values regarding the Internet connection from your Internet Service Provider.

If the problem persists, please get back to us with the following information given below:

- Click on start & click `Run`.
- Type in cmd & click `ok`.

SOURCE: the internet port light keeps flashing amber

Frustrating that the answer is not readily apparent from Netgear but it's really pretty easy. An Amber light on the Internet Port means the same as an Amber Light on a Lan Port. That is, the router senses the connection is less than the maximum speed. No, Netgear does not document this in their manual but will 'fess up to it if you talk to a real Tech Support person. There is no difference in the lights in the Internet Port and Lan Ports. They are both "Ports". From Netgear:
Green - The LAN (local area network) port has detected link with a 100 Mbps
device.
Green Blinking - Data is being transmitted or received at 100 Mbps.
Amber - The Local port has detected link with a 10 Mbps device.
Amber Blinking - Data is being transmitted or received at 10 Mbps.
No light - No link is detected on this port.

But your Internet still works you say. Yes, that is because your connection to your ISP is just about always less than the minimum speed, so you don't notice any difference other than an annoying change in color on the router. This usually can be resolved by resetting the modem. That will cause the ISP to reconnect to you with a different modem at their end. They have a piece of equipment that is less than optimal but if they are like most ISPs, they will not have a clue (or an interest in getting it fixed). If you call your ISP, they will probably set you on a whole course of checking your computer network drivers, updating router firmware, resetting and rebooting your computer, etc. All steps listed in the Official HelpDesk Guide to Getting the Customer Off the Phone Manual as one of those usually will eventually will be a reset of the offending piece of equipment.

SOURCE: The ''wireless'' light on my wireless router is flashing amber

What have you tried so far?
1. You can unplug the power cord of your modem on the back of the modem.
2. Unplug the power cord on the back of your router
3. Unplug the ethernet cable at the back of your modem
4. Unplug all the ethernet cable at the back of your router
5. Wait for 2 minutes then plug the power cord back into your modem and the ethernet cable
6. Wait for 2 minutes again then plug the power cord back into your router and the ethernet cable
7. Try to reconnect
(Note: Resetting your router will restore to factory default)
8. If not successful, try resetting the router. While the power cord is plugged at the back of your router press the reset button for 15 seconds, unplug the power cord of your router and press the reset button again for 15 seconds then plug the power cord back into your router and press the reset button for 15 seconds. (after resetting reconfigure your router) Try to connect.

9. If not successful, try to upgrade the firmware

The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

1. check with you ISP. You may have an issue with the server.

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.

This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

I'm not clear about the blinking amber light you are referring to. Is it on the computer or the monitor.
I checked Dell's web site for the service manual for this computer model, & found this document:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8300/sm/adtshoot.htm#1102195

If the blinking amber light is on the monitor, check the connection between it & the computer itself. Make sure the cable is not damaged & that it does not have any broken pins in the socket.
