    Solved. Unplug wireless router. (do not power on at all, if possible) until modem reads an internet connection.

    While still powered off, connect the router to the modem. Then plug in the router, and it should fix it. If the router is on when you plug it in to the modem, it will give a solid amber light. You will be able to connect to the network but not the internet. If you connect to the modem before it has internet access, the same thing will occur.

Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Cable ISP: ·


Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Cable ISP :
  • Connect the cable Modem/ Ethernet cable from ISP to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using another Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.

Wired Part Configuration:Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
If it is not connected then we need to configure by following these steps.

Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)

Step 2: Click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next.

Step 3: HOST NAME leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.

Step 4: Click on MAC ADDRESS or MAC CLONE (found right below the connection type on left side of RSP).

Step 5: click on the button CLONE (once you click on clone the MAC address will get changed) and click on APPLY CHANGES.

Step 6: Before doing MAC clone one important thing has to be noticed. Check whether you are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the cable modem. Because Cable ISPs uses a particular kind of authentication called MAC authentication. Hence, only the particular computers whose MAC addresses are registered in their database will be able to go online directly from the modem.
***MAC clone is a feature that copies the MAC address of your computer and pastes it in the router. So the router will have the MAC address of your computer and it will get connected to the internet.

Step 7: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.

Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.
  • Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.
  • If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected.In this case you need to repeat the above Network power cycle by unplugging the cable that is going into the cable modem from the wall outlet.
  • Still if the internet status is not connected, then connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online.
  • If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.
your wired part is configured completely now.To configure the wireless part click here

If you don't have a PPoE password from your ISP, then just connect the ISP modem to the main port on the router. Then connect a PC with a network cable. This should work, if not try connecting the modem directly to the PC to test.
If you get internet with just the modem, then try resetting the router.

The internet connection in my area went down yesterday, but i didn't know this and thought the reason i couldn't access internet was a problem with my linksys wrt54g router. So i unplugged and...


The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

No solid power light = NO internet. Check and make sure router is plugged in. Try unplugging router for half a minute and plug it in again check and make sure the outlet works where you are plugging the router in and if still no power light you can contact Netgear support at 888-638-4327.

Cannot connect to internet. router modem and globe lights blinking amber.


If the modem light is blinking it means that there is activity, so this is normal.

However, the globe/internet light needs to be solid green. If it is blinking it means it is attempting to connect to the internet.

Make sure first that the internet connection is working when directly connected to the modem. If yes, then the router might not be configured properly. To check the configuration on the router, access the setup page by using a web browser. Type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.

By default the password should be left empty.

Once in the setup page of the router, go to Internet WAN. Select the connection that your ISP is using. Either, PPPOE (requires a username and password from ISP) or Dynamic, (the settings are obtained automatically from the ISP). If you are not sure, contact your ISP.

I hope this helps!
