If you follow these steps it should clear up your issue.

  1. Unplug power from your modem, router and computer (turn off computer). Check to make sure your modem does not have a back up battery in it.
  2. Plug the coax (cable) or phone line (dsl) into your modem
  3. Plug an ethernet cable from your modem to the router. Make sure it is plugged into the "internet" port.
  4. Turn the modem on and wait 40 seconds for the lights to come on and the system to boot up fully.
  5. When it is up, plug the power into the router. Wait another 40 seconds to a minute for all the lights to come on and be green.
If this does not help please let me know and we can move further with your support. Routers can sometimes be very sensitive.

Good Luck,

I cannot access the router settings.The light keeps flashing green.I cannot manually set up my settings.It said the setup was a success, but later when I was setting the router settings it told me I lost...


Flashing green means its trying to contact the modem. So, there is some problem with modem-router connection or with the modem.

Disconnect the modem from the router and connect the modem alonely to the desktop and check.

If you are unable to go online, restart the modem/reset the modem.

After that, connect the modem to the router, then reset the router (In the back side, U can see a reset button. Hold the button upto 10-15 seconds, lights will go off and it will vary). then, power off the router and after 10 sec, make it on.

Then it will go to default settings. Now, try to go online.

If not, Call Belkin 1800 2BELKIN. Life time Free phone support 24*7.

2. Press and hold the reset button on the bottom of the router
3. Keep the reset button depressed and, at the same time, plug the power supply back in
4. Keep the reset button depressed for another 10 seconds
5. Release the reset button

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.

Belkin Router problem


Hi,

A red light on your belkin router means its already busted as you decribe other lights are not ON at all. In all other types of modems and routers Red LED light on it mean synching up and if more than 20 secs with a red light is already considered busted.

Note: You may also check your phone cable rj11 , power surges, defective phone jack.

when you upgraded did any settings from your isp change like passwords or usenames that your router may not be registering at your isp's server, or the line speed that you are now getting is not suported by the router.

 

type 192.168.2.1 in your web browser and check the connection settings.
