Hi, I was the one who asked you a loooong long time ago regarding my MSI router that has a failed firmware. The status still blinks very fast meaning still an error. You said that I had to update the firmware (or downgrade), but the problem is, I dont know how to access the router. The only thing working is that my computer detects the router, yet "Limited or no connectivity"... i really wish i can repair this router. If you can get in touch with me at my email (firstname.lastname@example.org), it would be better since i dont usually go to fixya.com.. thanks so much!

you got yourself a pickle. updating firmware (or flashing) it's a very critical process and you only do it becuase you have to (an nothing else), not completing a firmware update usually will cause irreperable damage to your unit so be prepared to replace the router.
now the only thing you can try is to
1. make sure you have the right firmware update (the one that is specifically for your router model and revision). find the router model and revision (usually at the bottom of your router) and get the right version from the router manufacturer and nowhere else and try the update again since you can still access the configuration page. section 5.11.2 on manual (link below)
2. you may also want to attempt to reset your router to factory defaults, section 5.11.3 on manual
if you can see the router page, then your pc can see the router. go to settings on the router page and follow reset steps.. also routers are next to free now adays, goodwill has a ton of them for like 5 bucks each.
try to chk out the firmware of the router. in most of the cases firmware are the major problem for the disconnection of the connection if the device has been purchased a while ago. visit ur belkin website and look for the firmware for your router model no.
if the device is new then try to decrease the mtu size and temporarily disable the firewall of the router
thanx and regards
Something internally died. if you are willing to start replacing chips inside the thing. let me know the part numbers from the chips.
If you dont want to get into surface mount soldering I would suggest canning the thing or EBAYing it as parts.
fast blinking wan light may indicates that it receiving or sending data. try the ff and see if this may work:
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
You need to logon to the router via a computer that is on the same network as the router. open internet explorer and enter the routers IP address.example > http://192.168.2.1 The router's IP address should be on the bottom of the router, if not, on the computer you are using, click start, click run, type cmd and hit the enter key at the ms/dos window, type ipconfig /all
look for the default gateway IP address, this is your router. once you get the router's setup page, logon the router and configure your router. BPCS
