What Orange light are you refering to? You have an orange and green LED on the block of the Ethernet connecter, if the cable is plugged into the plug and the other end is terminated into another deive such as a modem,bridge,router or switch the orange light(led) should come on as that indicates a valdi link hence being called the link light, the green light(led) indicates data being received or transmitted. If orange flash with sparks(bad) from the plug it means there is power on the cable..very bad as this could be due to the ethernet card that is faulty or the device on the other end of the cable is faulty.

I have a belkin wireless modem router model F7D1401 v1 and a week ago it would be normal then flash orange and stop working. however now it is a constant orange with the WPS button flashing orange.


I think you have the upper light blinking and lower light solid. Is that right? The upper light blinking means that the connection to your ISP is not working. Try unplugging/replugging the Ethernet cable in the top port (probably yellow and labeled "WAN" or "DSL" or something). Check the other end of that cable. If you have another Ethernet cable, try swapping it out.

If none of that works, call your ISP to check the connection.

Network fails through one port going orange


The ASUS site has a quick start guide (I read Version 3) that says the lights show blue for connections and blink blue for activity. Sometimes orange indicates a connection at a lower speed. What happens when you try a spare port? What is connected to the 'orange' port? What do the lights at the other end of the suspect patch cable indicate? Note that the manual isn't great because the titles say Gigabit Ethernet but the text talks about 10/100 but not 1000 megabit ethernet.

This is a layer 2 device and it ain't exactly the cleverest box on the LAN. If you move devices to other ports, it is supposed to figure that out dynamically. You should be able to eliminate devices one at a time to determine which port or device is defective. Start by eliminating the 'orange' device. If the router is disconnected can you still print?

If you have limited functionality with the suspect device disconnected, the problem could be with that device. Sometimes cables can be a problem. Not likely but it is necessary to check by substituting a known good cable on a link. If the problem goes away, it was the cable.

Remember to photograph the initial configuration with your smartphone. That can help you when you forget where you started. Label the wires with masking tape if there are no other labels, so you can find your way back to the starting point.

Orange light doesnt let me use the internet


Make sure you have a good cable and you are plugged into the right port usually yellow for incoming signal(modem to router) and the ports go to any devices you have.

When I press the power on it makes a sound twice and the Harddrive button stays orange


Hi there,

This is a hardware problem. Try disconnecting all cables behind the tower then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. After that try connecting just the power cable and turn on the pc. If there is no change (power light is still orange), it could be numerous things. like your power supply , memory, motherboard or processor. If it works then one of your external devices is causing this problem. If you can open your tower (just incase power light is still orange) try removing the memory and cleaning the contacts using a pencil eraser. Rub it to the gold contacts to clean it (please refer to the manual to do it).

try power cycle by removing the power of the router for one minute then plug it again. check the cable if all of it tightly connected to the specified port if it is a modem router it should have a 3 cable connected to it Phone line, Ethernet cable and the power adapter. the Ethernet cable should be connect to the back of your tower( computer). check you phone for a dial tone. check the light in the router like dsl , ethernet ,internet and activity. all of these must have a light.

Cannot get on the internet


light should be green instead of orange. check in your device manager to make sure the driver is installed for the ethernet adapter, if it is then you know the motherboard is bad cause the ethernet adapter is connected to the motherboard.

If the driver for the ethernet adapter is not installed then go to support.dell.com and from there go into the drivers section, type in your model and then download the driver for your laptop and install it and then see if you can connect. If you do this and you still can't connect then that still means the ethernet adapter is bad and the motherboard would still have to be replaced.
