what u can try is ... if u have the details for the configration... reset the router by pressing the reset button and hold the reset down for 10 to 15 secs and the router will restart ... go to the router configration page and re configure it ... and see if it works and if u still get the orange light call ur ISP and if u do not have the configration details in that case too call ISP
Yes you simply need to hook up via an Ethernet cable, open a browser type in the routers address, login with username and password, and then you can edit any setting you like. Then when finished you save settings and reboot router.
installation guide below.
As i understand you have a router provided by your ISP: MTNL, you need to configure the Belkin router in Dynamic mode and not in PPPoE. Then restart the devices by unplugging the power from MTNL router and Belkin. Wait for 20 secs, then power up MTNL router 1st, wait for all lights to get steady and finally power up the Belkin wireless router. Then you will find the modem and internet light lit up properly. For any further clarifications, revert!
if the router is still under warranty or you have an existing ISP,you can try to contact them since they are the only one who knows how to configure that,theres a possiblity that they will reset everything
belkin routers are compatible with all ISPs.... all that it requires is an ethernet cable that should come from ISP, either directly or through modem...
so if your virgin connection gives you an ethernet port in their modem, you can configure the belkin router accordingly...
There could be a problem with the wireless configuration on ur belkin router.
Go ahead and type the following in the command prompt of ur computer.
:-This will list out the ip address and the default gateway of the computer
:-Make a note of Default Gate way.
:-Type the default gate way address in to the address bar of the internet explorer.
:-It will take u to the router configuration page.

:-In the router page u could see wireless settings options on the lefthand side of ur router confiuration page.

Most of the time the wireless device do not connect to router due to wrong "Wireless network key"
:Make sure you have same wireless netwrok settings in the devices as in the wireless router.
:-Send me ur product details and ur setting details like
ISP(Internet Service Provider):-
Brand Name of the modem:-
Model no. of the belkin router:-
If u would like to resolve ur problem soon then send me all details..
Your Belkin router is normally configured to get a dynamic IP Add from your Internet provider unless otherwise configured. Most ISP's network where clients/subscribers connect (through DSL) has a DHCP server that hands out this IP adds. If your router keeps on changing its WAN IP add, it may presumably be because: 1. Your router keeps on rebooting or powering on/off and everytime it turns on, it is given a new IP add; 2. Your ISP's DHCP server keeps on renewing its lease on the IP add given to your router.
Corrective measures would entail: a. Do a full hard reset of your router and go through the installation setup again. Of course this would revert all settings/configuration to factory default; and/or b. Contact your ISP and explain your concern.
In some cases, the router's MAC address has an issue that the ISP's DHCP is keeping a hard time recognizing it. this can be corrected with a firmware update.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things tunrs up or should you need additional information.
