    I have the Belkin Wireless N router, which is showing the blinking amber light for modem and won't connect to the internet. I tried unplugging and resetting both the modem and the router which didn't help.

Turn everything off. I mean everything. That is, turn off the computer, the router, and the modem, unplug them, and disconnect them from each other. If the modem has a battery, remove it if you can so it shuts completely off. Wait a few minutes, then BEFORE YOU POWER ON, reconnect the signal cables... modem to router, router to PC. Then replace the battery/turn on your modem, plug your power back into your router, then turn on your PC. Hope this helps.

If you don't have a PPoE password from your ISP, then just connect the ISP modem to the main port on the router. Then connect a PC with a network cable. This should work, if not try connecting the modem directly to the PC to test.
If you get internet with just the modem, then try resetting the router.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
