Some routers will not get online if voip is connected while repairing connection. I would unplug your voip and try to connect then. Unplug your modem for about 30-45 seconds and then make sure all wiring is correct. Once you are able to connect the plug your voip back in. Internet light is not supposed to be orange but green or on some routers blue. If your modem aslo has orange light it is possible it is your provider issue. I would also check with them if steps i described above dont work. Good luck.

Are you using dsl or cablemodem?

If the internet led does not come on, then your router is not getting any communication from your dsl or cable modem. try reseating the connections and reboot each device.
