SOURCE: Belkin N1 wireless router drops offline

The connectivity issue with your Belkin router could be due to a couple of different items. Your ISP might even be able to shed a little light on the subject.

I would also go to Belkin's website, and go to the support area by clicking on Support Center in the left pane of the sight. You can then search for your product number. With the results that you receive, you will be able to see what version of firmware they have, which is like doing a software upgrade on your computer. There should also be a step by step process on the website for you to install the firmware. I would do it from a desktop that is connected physically to the router.

Please let me know if you would like further assistance with this matter. Thank you.

SOURCE: Blinking amber light on modem icon

that means there is usually a problem with your modem. you know how to hook up a router, right? usually you unplug power from both devices, plug in your modem and let it load, then plug in your router. (with some isp's id will work the other way around.

What have you tried so far?
1. You can unplug the power cord of your modem on the back of the modem.
2. Unplug the power cord on the back of your router
3. Unplug the ethernet cable at the back of your modem
4. Unplug all the ethernet cable at the back of your router
5. Wait for 2 minutes then plug the power cord back into your modem and the ethernet cable
6. Wait for 2 minutes again then plug the power cord back into your router and the ethernet cable
7. Try to reconnect
(Note: Resetting your router will restore to factory default)
8. If not successful, try resetting the router. While the power cord is plugged at the back of your router press the reset button for 15 seconds, unplug the power cord of your router and press the reset button again for 15 seconds then plug the power cord back into your router and press the reset button for 15 seconds. (after resetting reconfigure your router) Try to connect.

9. If not successful, try to upgrade the firmware

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

The wireless light when lit up in AMBER says, either you are trying to connect with a wrong password or the security enabled in the router is not compatible with your laptop. If you have the security enabled as WPA/WPA2 in the router, then change it into 64bitWEP. Also change the name of the network (SSID) to prevent any future issues with SSID.

I own a HP DV9000 my wireless quit working


Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless LAN device is working and enabled. If not reinstall the Wireless LAN driver.
If the Wireless LAN is OK and enabled then sometimes when you bootup the Wireless LAN card doesn't get an IP address from the wireless router. This usually has a red X on the wireless connection icon and sometime you get an error message "Limited or no connection".
To get the router to issue the wireless LAN card with a new IP address, righr click on the Wireless icon and click on Repair.
You can also power down the router wait 15secs and power up the router again then reboot the computer.
If it still doesn't work you could have a faulty wireless card, see it your friendly computer shop can test it for you.

My wireless icon on my compaq Presario f500 has disappeared


Checked your router Wifi settings, and if wireless parts is enabled there, and the rest of the settings.
Maybe some joker broke in, happened to me just 4 weeks ago.
Or some software caused factory default. Or ISP forced that resetting WEP and/or WPA settings. The one I have gives out one router wireless (Alcatel) only with locked firmware only they can control :((
