using the "Reset" button. Use the restore option in instances
where you may have forgotten your custom password.

Resetting the Router
Push and release the "Reset" button. The lights on the Router will
momentarily flash. The "Router" light will begin to blink. When
the "Router" light becomes solid again, the reset is complete.
Restoring Your Router to factory Defaults
Press and hold the "Reset" button for at least 10 seconds,
and then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily
flash. The "Router" light will begin to blink. When the "Router"
light becomes solid again, the restore is complete.

My linksys wrt160n wireless router light is blinking


Welcome to FixYa
Indication of Router Lights:
  • Power light blinks. If LAN or WAN cable is plugged in, their respective lights will flash on activity.
  • Power light turns off for several seconds.
  • All lights, except power light, turn on and then off.
  • Power light blinks slowly, then faster, and WLAN light will turn on.
  • Once Power light and WLAN light are on solid, the router is fully rebooted.

A working router should show solid green power light. upgrade the firmware of 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.

If the power light is blinking on the router , then it might not be working properly.
You will need to press the reset button on the back side of the router for 30 seconds. release it. unplug the power cable. plug it back in. wait for a minute and check if the power light is solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
do the same thing and check if the power light is solid.

If the power light is solid then you will need to set up the router again.
If the power light is still blinking, then connect the computer to the router and check the IP address on the computer. If the IP address is 192.168.1.100 then try to open the set up page of the router and check the settings of the router.

Router will not go wireless. all lights come on


The "wireless" (second) light on this model does not indicate that the router's wireless features are active, it indicates that a computer is connected to the router wirelessly. If the "router" (fourth) light shows three little "radio wave" symbols, the router's wireless capability is on.

I dont know what the telephone light means


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

My D-Link DI-514 wireless router doesn't light up


Sounds like you have a bad power supply. In my personal experiences with bad routers they either don't light up at all or all the lights blink. It doesn't take much to send one to the router graveyard. Power surges and lightning strikes are the most common culprits. Hope this helps
