Usually it means the connection is dropping. Contact your ISP and have them run a test on your line. In addition (and they'll ask you to do this anyway), replace the microfilter and the cable that goes from your router to the microfilter, to help rule out faulty hardware.

Reset my dlink dir 615 router and now internet light stays flashing orange


Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.

amber light means your only getting 10Mb speed. Your ethernet port could be going bad on the laptop. Go to control panel > Network Settings > right click Your Network (LAN) adapter, properties, click configure, advanced tab and make sure your link speed is set to "auto negotiate" or "auto detect"

My modem ADSL data light keeps flashing and sometimes does not appear affecting my ability to acces the Internet.
I usually have to re-boot my computer and this seems to solve the problem for a time. It is very inconsistant and anoying.Thank youM. Davis

ADSL DATA light flashes says there is internet activity (Internet status: Connected)...
ADSL DATA when off says there is no internet activity (Internet status: Not Connected)...

This occurs when there is a lot of noise in your telephone line...
It is adviced to do a line test in this case to find the amount of noise in your line...
If there is a lot of noise your modem will lose the internet connectivity and will try to re-establish the connection with ISP...
In this case the ADSL DATA light switches between OFF and ON...

One more thing...
ADSL SYNC light should be steady...
If it is blinking is says there is no syncronisation between your modem and ISP...

At the bottom of my router are two icons, the modem and the internet, which are flashing orange. all other icons are blue. i am unable to get a connection. I also have VOIP connected to my router, if that...


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.
