Intermittent connectivity to modem at power up

Belkin G+ Wireless Router (F5D9231-4 v2) intermittent power up problem with the modem connection. We power down both the modem and the router with a surge strip. Every couple days when we power up, the modem comes up fine and the router's lights come up but the modem light on the router blinks red (meaning no connection). I solved it once by disconnecting the power to both and replugging the modem, waiting til all lights were ''on'' and then plugging the router power in. The next day this didn't work and I had to power all off, unplug both from the power strip; and reset the router. I had tried every combination to get to that last resort.
I still have 20 days to return the router but would prefer to problem solve first.

I would first recommend not powering down the router and modem. Leave them always powered on. The router should be acting as a firewall so that your computer can't be "seen", and make sure you have an antivirus program and run regular scans. You can just power down your pc if you're still worried about somebody getting into your pc. Now that you're protected, power up the modem and wait a couple minutes until all lights are stable. If in doubt as to how long, wait 5 minutes. Then power up your router. After a couple minutes, you should be good to go. Leave both powered on at all times to see if this fixes it.
If you continue to experience problems, I'd recommend updating the firmware. There should be a setting in the router to update the firmware, or you can go to Belkins website and download the firmware (remember the path to where you save it to), and then upgrade the firmware.

Some people turn everything off at night and then when they turn things back on everything starts powering up. If you do this, it may be the problem because you have the modem and the router starting up at the same time. If the router finishes before the modem then it will drop.

Just make sure that you turn your wireless router on after the modem had booted up. This problem also happens when you have a power outage in the house and they both boot up at the same time.

When ever you are experiencing drops, just go unplug the wireless router then plug it back after about 30 seconds.

Hi Jason

To get the connection back all you need to do is just connect the modem to the router to the yello port & computer to any gray port on the router.
& unplugg the power from the router first & then from the cable modem. Wait 30sec & plug the power to the cable modem first & then once the modem is on completly plug the power to the belkin router.
The light will turn green & start working.

This is an intermittent connection.
To avoid this happening over & over kindly update the firmware in the router.
you can login to the belkin.com/support web site to download & know the procedures to update the firmware in the router.

Thanks
