Try restoring the router to factory defaults. you can do this by
unpluging the router.  Push and HOLD the reset button, 
DO not release the button,  plug the power of the router.  wait for 30seconds. release the reset button. 
wait for 1 min, turn off router,  and then turn on try to reconfigure your router by using the setup wizard

Why dose the data light keep flashing

that's normal, it means that there is data flowing. If it wasn't flashing then your router would not be working correctly.

If the green light is one of the port lights, then your network is switching into 10mbs (Orange = 10mbs, Green = 100mbs) - it may be a dodgy cable but more likely a faulty network card in your PC.

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.

I use china made mp3 player firmware 9.53.7601. but having problem, i want it to upgrade but did'nt find new version help me

dont ever do any upgrades to a most cases it will render the hardware useless.....
most of the mp3 are made to work for a limited period...every other day technology keeps changing so they dont make any upgraded to old firmwares....
also none bothers about old firmwares....
it's not worth spending that much a new one...even i spent some 4 months figuring how to make my old mp3 work's just waste of a new costs much less to buy a new one rather than trying to fix an old usless one...

Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router

Read the manual that came with the router -- there is a "factory-reset" process that _possibly_ may "revive" the router. Otherwise, it's time to buy a replacement.

Not working

Go into your routers settings, usually by typing it's ip address in your web browser and save all the settings to your hard drive or make a note of all the settings. Look to the connections menu and see if your ISP's ip address and dns servers are showing and not showing noughts, if it does show noughts your isp is at fault, if there is dns server numbers showing,look to see if there is an option to restart the router, if restart it and try again. On the router normally at the rear there should be a hard reset button which should be held in for atleast 10 seconds and let the router reboot. If non of this works, then the router is probably faulty
