I bought a new Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4 (model No: 1.00.10) (Serial No: 12736823301546) in Jan. 2008, for £71.00. It has recently started to switch itself of overnight, and shows the amber light far right. I am required to reboot the router each morning in order to get back on line. I am sure this is not normal. I am networking using an NTL World cable modem connection, the Router is connected to the modem and an XP 2000 desktop computer. I am running an HP Vista Pavilion laptop wired some 7 feet away from the router next door. I am downloading utorrent movies overnight, is this the reason for my problem?

Wireless light will lit up only if any wireless computer is connected to Belkin's wireless network. First, connect to Belkin's wireless network that you can scan. After you connect, try to go online It ll work...
your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.

Try changing the channel of the router to 1,9 or 11, and make sure that there is no cordless phone near the router or the wireless computer, this will help mionimize wireless interference. If this may not work you may want to adjust some settings on the advance wireless settings of the router like the beacon(set it to 50) and RTS/fragmentation(2304).
It is quite possible that your issue is due to the DHCP function of your router. I would check the DHCP settings and the lease time that is set. Its quite possible that the lease time is running out and its having difficulty renewing a new IP.
Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?
Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?
If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.
I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
