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.

Compaq Presario V5000 does not come on

The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

What does it mean when the orange light on the ps3 flashes?

f there is an orange light on your PS3 then there are a few basic steps you need to take that stand a good chance at being able to fix your console. Firstly, check that all the cables and leads are correctly attached to your PS3. Sometimes a cable or lead may have become slightly unseated if you moved your PS3 or somebody/something bumped into it. Remove every lead and cable and then re-attach them, one by one.Next, power down your PS3 and leave it switched off for at least 30 minutes. From time to time the Playstation 3 orange light error can be caused by overheating, so by turning it off and leaving it you will give your console a chance to cool down. However, it is important to note that this is only a temporary fix to your problem, and the orange light error on your PS3 will come back.Finally, ensure that your PS3's network connection is working properly. If you connect your console to the Internet via a wireless connection then this connection can sometimes be interrupted, thus causing problems with your console. Turn off your Internet modem/router and then reboot it. Also, try using a wired Internet connection to your PS3, if this is possible.By following the above steps you may be able to fix the PS3 orange light error.

Intermitant connectivity to internet (orange)

Ok well you might want to start with a router firmware update. Visit the router's website. i.e. etc. etc.

If that doesn't fix your problem we can try something else, but that's the best place to start for now.
