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.

SOURCE: Modem Light Flashing, Internet Light Off, No Internet Connection

Hi, Here is your solution.
Please ensure the proper physical connection from modem to router and to the computer as mentioned on the box and make your all lights are on modem.After that turn on the router,if your have a cable modem, you can very well go for a hard reset,that it is at the back of your router you would see a reset button which is a button inside a hole. Please hold the button for 20 secs with power on router and 20 seconds without power continuously for 3mins (remember to hold the reset button through out 3 mins while plugin and plugout the power cord of the router and use pin or pen to hold the button). After this check out the lights on your router, lan light, internet ,power and modem should be solid.Else you can call the customer service number on the product box, they will assit you very well,ITS A TOLL FREE NUMBER.

SOURCE: trying to install belkin enhanced wireless router

Turn everything off. I mean everything. That is, turn off the computer, the router, and the modem, unplug them, and disconnect them from each other. If the modem has a battery, remove it if you can so it shuts completely off. Wait a few minutes, then BEFORE YOU POWER ON, reconnect the signal cables... modem to router, router to PC. Then replace the battery/turn on your modem, plug your power back into your router, then turn on your PC. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect

1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

When i turn the belkin wireless router on the modem and internet icons blink red

Thank you for using FixYa
Red or amber lights tells you that something is wrong with the modem, but it could be just the configuration. Be sure you have an internet signal on the line coming into the modem and that the connections are all plugged into the modem/router correctly. Most probable, is that you need to enter the user name and password. Here is a link for the manual for your modem, so you can download it and see for yourself. There are procedures that we need to go through with you at the computer but the first thing is establishing the internet signal. Your Internet provider and help you and send tests to the router from their central office. The phone line could be a problem, the internet signal could be bad and last but not least is the router. We can only see one question at a time that you post, so I suggest you contact your ISP.

Hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

The internet is down the dsl light on the modem is blinking red


I experienced the same problem yesterday with my modem,the internet is down as a result of the fact that the computer doesn't recognize the remote modem,hence the dsl light blinks red,when the internet is up the dsl lights should blink green,the problem is mostly from your internet provider,few times from your computer.

The solution is so simple;

2.Shut down your computer.
3.Turn on your computer again after at least 3mins.
4.Insert the modem in your computer and connect to the internet.
5.It might take up to a few attempts before it gets connected to the internet.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4

Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
