    (Orange/White) The Cisco
    logo is the Router’s SecureEasySetup button. It

    lights up and will stay orange when the Router

    is powered on. The color orange indicates that

    the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup

    feature, while the color white indicates that the

    Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature.

    When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

    mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and

    start flashing. After the Router has generated

    the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco

    logo will stop flashing and stay white.

    To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press

    and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

    The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router

    resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

    indicate a successful reset.

Hi

If you have an internet connection using the ethernet cable but not on the wireless and there is an orange light blinking.. Try to reset the router by pressing the reset button located on the back or on the location were you can twist the stand for the router. press it for about 10secs and that will return the router on a factory settings. before u reset the router make sure to acces the configuration for the internet settings of your isp provider. if the orange light still there, try to download the latest firmware of your router on linksys site and that should fix the problem

Belkin n1 router - wireless light not on - laptop has limited connectivity


If could be that you were unable to reset the router properly. You have to make sure that the router is on while pressing and holding the reset button using a paper clip. the reset button is usually found at the back of the router, then you may have to reconfigure the settings again.

you can also manually access the router page for you to change the settings.

Router orange button


on the back of the unit is a reset button
Hold that down for 30 sec
that will completely reset the router back to factory defaults
turn the unit off for 15 min while the ISP's connection resets.
Then power back up.
you should be able to reach 192.168.1.1 via the browser thru the wired connection.
Then setup the system again.
the only problem is if your MAC was cloned by the ISP and that is the only connection they will let back on.
If that is the issue, please respond back

Laptop


Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
