    Then there could be that something else internally has the unit been dropped or trodden on try plugging the Ethernet cable into another port apart from that i would say the main unit is faulty sorry.

My modem light is orange. every time i reset it it goes from blue to orange


Hi Christopher s crisp,
Is it blinking Orange or steady?
Blinking amber: The Router can't detect the modem. Either the
modem is off, is not plugged into the Router, or is unresponsive.
It could be the modem.
You can try connecting the modem directly to computer bypassing the router and see if that works.
Check the LED on Modem.
Do you have other computers to test the connection?
Might need to talk to ISP if issue with Modem.

Let me know.
Thanks

N300 router has a steady orange blinking light


The blinking orange power light suggests that there is a problem with your modem. The modem should be plugged into the top ethernet port of your router. Try turning off your modem for 10 seconds and then turning it back on.

Are the lights on the router stay on or blinking ?


The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.

When you connect it to wireless make sure you go into control panel / network view your connection right click on local area network connection choose disable then connect to your wireless connection. Right click your wireless icon by your clock choose connect to wireless network or view available local wireless connection.

Modem light keeps blinking Have tried resetting. Restoring to default settings. If I hook the computer directly to the time warner modem I can acces the internet fine. Thanks


If the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).
How to configure the router for Time Warner?
1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser
3.Under Internet Settings, change the connection type as Dynamic.
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 10 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

For any advanced help, revert asap!
Thanks and regards,
Arvind

Adsl wont stay on ,quick set up ,says cant find modem


Either the router is not connected properly to the modem, or the modem is not set up properly. First, unplug the router from the modem and disconnect power to both of them. Make sure the modem is connected to its data source, in this case the telephone line. Make sure the company has authorized the modem and make sure it's connected to the phone socket they specified, if they did. You should plug a CAT-5(ethernet) cable between the LAN port on the modem and the WAN port on the router. Now power on the modem. Wait until the modem's lights indicate it has a connection. If the modem doesn't indicate a connection, call your ISP. It will probably be as simple as them sending a refresh signal to it. After the modem finds a connection, power on the router. Your internet service should now be working. If not, try plugging the computer's network cable directly into the LAN port on the modem. If that computer then has internet, your problem is with the router. If the computer still doesn't have internet, then the problem is either with the settings on the computer or there's still a problem with the modem/ISP
