    It sounds to me like your ISP is not being very helpful. I would personally ask to speak with a supervisor when calling the ISP.

    Always remember to get the service person's name as soon as they answer the phone. When you manage to get the supervisor on the phone, you can report any service person who hangs up on you.

    Just keep on bugging the ISP. I can't imagine there being any other reason for that other than the ISP or a broken modem.

    Also, next time this happens, try unplugging your router for about 20 seconds and plug it back in. If that doesn't fix the problem, try the same with the modem. If neither one works, I would suggest bugging the heck out of the ISP until they give you a decent solution.

    Good luck.

My belkin N1 router when i plug it in it just flashes the security light and wont connect to the internet


You will need to double-check your security settings. Apparently, the modem is trying to tell you there's a problem regarding this.
The easiest way to be able to access the router settings in this case, will be to provide a direct connection between your PC and the Belkin router (using a network cable) and then type in that address.
If the address still doesn't work, double check the router's IP address by opening the Command Prompt (it's under Programs -> Accessories) and typing in "ipconfig", then hitting Enter. The IP-address you're looking for is listed under "default gateway".

(Also, make sure your computer isn't using a fixed IP, set it up so it's dynamically assigned an address by the Belkin router.)

My wireless router was working then the wireless and security light are now off. Wireless internet is not working


Someone in your neighborhood got into your router and turn it off, so they can get and use your internet connection. I would reset the router by the reset button, and right away put a password on it, and then use mac address filtering on the router. This will only allow your computer access to the internet.

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.
