if the wireless light is lit up in red it says "someone is trying to connect to your network using wrong password"
Sometimes if any of your devices are not compatible with the security enabled in the router then the light will lit up in red. click here to know more about security types of belkin router
routers has to be turned off atleast 2 hours per day for it to work properly...
so better turn off the router when not in use, this will clear the routing table of your router and will make the router to work as a fresh router everyday, so you wont face any speed problems.
You will need to double-check your security settings. Apparently, the modem is trying to tell you there's a problem regarding this.
The easiest way to be able to access the router settings in this case, will be to provide a direct connection between your PC and the Belkin router (using a network cable) and then type in that address. If the address still doesn't work, double check the router's IP address by opening the Command Prompt (it's under Programs -> Accessories) and typing in "ipconfig", then hitting Enter. The IP-address you're looking for is listed under "default gateway". (Also, make sure your computer isn't using a fixed IP, set it up so it's dynamically assigned an address by the Belkin router.)
Your computer cannot detect the Belkin if the wireless card in the computer has not been configured with the Belkin wireless settings. The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless
settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need
to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's
wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it
will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.
You want to secure the wireless network. Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable. Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page. Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured
