Re: Belkin Wireless router loses light display

I would call Belkin, sounds like a faulty router.

How long have you had it? And what made and model is the router?

The only light on my router is the router light. No other lights are coming on. I have tried rebooting.

When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:

Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.

Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.

Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).

Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.

Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.

Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.

If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.

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.

I have a Belkin 8623-4 and the "wireless" and modem icon flash orange. The internet icon does not light. Solve this

Are you using dsl or cablemodem?

If the internet led does not come on, then your router is not getting any communication from your dsl or cable modem. try reseating the connections and reboot each device.

All light are on (solid blue) except the wireless

The wireless indicator (LED) only lights up blue when a it has a connection to a wireless device.

Once a device (laptop, printer,etc) is configured with the settings that match your router, the blue light will turn on unless there is a physical proble with the router itself.

Is this router new and you're trying to get it setup or was it functioning before and now there is a problem?

when you upgraded did any settings from your isp change like passwords or usenames that your router may not be registering at your isp's server, or the line speed that you are now getting is not suported by the router.


type in your web browser and check the connection settings.
