You need to contact your Internet provider for that one. You can try the following first though.

Unplug both you Router and your Internet box for a couple of minutes. Then plug them back up to see if that helps. Also try to plug a computer directly to the Internet connection without the router in line and see if that works. This is the process that your Internet company will have you go through. If you do not have a connection without your router; tell them what you have do so you can skip those steps with them. They might have an outage in your area or your Internet box could be bad.

Is your wired network working? Both should be out at the same time. If the wired connection is working; you have problems with your wireless connection only. If you do not get it solved; let me know what you have tried.

I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

The only light on my router is the router light. No other lights are coming on. I have tried rebooting.


When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:

Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.

Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.

Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).

Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.

Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.

Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.

If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

Router won't connect to the internet


I managed to figure it out. I had to clone the MAC address to get the router to connect to the Internet.

I still have another problem though, my laptop still won't connect to the router. I'm using Vista, is this a possible network adapter issue? My laptop is fine at connecting to other wireless networks round my friend's houses/libraries...

Pc works via ethernet cable but wireless laptop cannot see the network


I think you have lost your PPPOE internet connection. Reestablish the connection. If this is not the problem, click your wireless connection on the taskbar and search for your wireless device and reconnect. BPCS

Belkin Wireless router loses light display


I would call Belkin, sounds like a faulty router.

How long have you had it? And what made and model is the router?
