For some odd reason Chevy sometimes has there stereos connected to the security system. Check the fuse to make sure it didn't blow. You probably have vats security which is the worst thing ever made. I had that on my 02 firebird and had nothing but vats issues constantly.

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.

I cant connect to the internet through using the wireless connection

Hi Wayne,
I see that you are having difficulties with your wireless connection, have you tried checking if the wireless on your laptop is turned on? there should be a switch on the side of your Laptop some other Laptops may have that switch on the front.
  • Check the computer Icon in the lower right side of your taskbar it should be beside near the time, check if there are any red X or yellow Exclamation points on the computer Icon or if you have the wireless bars.
  • If you see a wireless signal but says limited or no connectivity when you point the mouse cursor on it then we just may need to check some settings on you system.
  • Also we can check you IP address on the Laptop by clicking on Start, All Program/Programs then Accessories under Accessories look for Command Prompt, once the Command Prompt window appears you will see a black box and a blinking cursor type in IPCONFIG then press enter this will show us you Laptops IP address or IPV 4, the IP should begin with 192.168.x.x but if it shows 169.254.x.x then this is a bad IP address, try recreating the wireless network in your laptop to renew the IP address.
  • First check the Router for any indication if the wireless light is turn on or not if not check the router settings and turn on or enable the wireless signal of your Router.
  • If the wireless light is turned ON then check the Router settings for any security options and if your Router has a security key enabled on it then you should copy and set that security in your Laptops wireless network settings in Network and Sharing Center.
  • if still the wireless connection doesn't connect we can try to uninstall and reinstall the Wireless driver for your Laptop which would require you to check first if you have a copy of the wireless driver inside your hard rive if you don't have the Installer for the driver then you may need to use a different computer to be able to download the wireless driver from your computer manufacturers website.

I hope that this will be helpful in resolving you Laptops wireless connection.
Have a nice day.

All lights for my Belkin N router are on except for the 'wireless light'. Also 'Security' light keeps on flashing. How do i fix this so that all lights are on?

Possible the wireless capabilitiy of your router is turned off and the security is turned off meaning that there is no security key in the router settings yet,

you will need to get in your routers default gateway check by going into the Dos Promp, type in IPCONFIG this will show you your IP address and default gateway type your default gateway in the address bar of your browser IE or Firefox ths should ask for a user name and password to get in your router the default user name will be admin and the password can be blank or password, or admin as well, depnds if your internet service provider change the password and user name of the router. once in the router check wireless settings look if the wireless is turned on the router and for the security just create a network security key to hav that light turned on if you want.

Showing red light on router have to keep taking lead out and plugging it back in also someone has got in on my skype account and used it, is the router secure and what can i do to make it safer

You need to setup wireless security. Not sure pprecisely which model you have but log into the router and select WPA security. You will need to do the same on all the other devices which wirelessly connect to it (right click on the wireless icon>properties. Afterr you have done that change your skype password
