    The globe keeps flashing orange and I can't connect to the internet because of this

    The blinking globe means that the router no longer has access to the Internet. The two most common causes are that:
    1. Your Internet connection is down, or more likely,
    2. You Internet provider has changed your IP address the the modem or router need to be reset to acquire the correct address.

    Belkin has a decent site for general troubleshooting located here.
    And a more general, but detailed troubleshooting guide can be found here.

    Cannot connect to internet. router modem and globe lights blinking amber.

    If the modem light is blinking it means that there is activity, so this is normal.

    However, the globe/internet light needs to be solid green. If it is blinking it means it is attempting to connect to the internet.

    Make sure first that the internet connection is working when directly connected to the modem. If yes, then the router might not be configured properly. To check the configuration on the router, access the setup page by using a web browser. Type in the address bar.

    By default the password should be left empty.

    Once in the setup page of the router, go to Internet WAN. Select the connection that your ISP is using. Either, PPPOE (requires a username and password from ISP) or Dynamic, (the settings are obtained automatically from the ISP). If you are not sure, contact your ISP.

    I hope this helps!

    Belkin wired voip iad not connecting to internet with macbook

    Try opening the Network Control Panel on the MacBook. Select the TCP/IP tab, then click Advanced. Note the list of IP address numbers. Click the "Renew DHCP Lease" button and see what changed. Most likely all of them did, in particular the "Internet Gateway" and "DNS server" addresses. The first is the connection between the D-Link router and your ISP, and the other addresses are for servers that translate your web browser URLs into the IP addresses for the web sites you want to see. The Gateway and DNS server addresses have to match those in the upstream router(s). The routers must have current IP addresses assigned by the routers upstream, and any client computer must have a current address assigned by the first route upstream. You can check into this by logging in to the webpages for your routers and examining the status reports.

    Apparently one of the devices in the chain fails to obtain a new IP address when the D-Link router is powered on. I suspect it is the Belkin router. A computer with an expired DHCP lease will probably be using the Internet gateway IP address assigned to the D-Link router when it was on before (in a busy neighborhood, that address would have been re-assigned to some other household). The Windows system may be sending a request for DHCP renewal up the line, which triggers the Belkin router to ask for the same from the D-Link unit, but it may be ignoring the signal from the MacBook or not getting one.

    If the MacBook successfully gets online with a manual Renew DHCP Lease request, obtain the owner's manual for your Belkin router (find the model number, then go to the Belkin support/downloads page for that model). See what settings are available to automate the DHCP renewal process.

    Lights wont turn off even if netwrk wires are unplugged..

    You'll have to hold your reset button down for atleast 10 seconds, or even more, then you'll have to reconfigure you entire connnection at address
    However before doing that, try and power down the whole unit for a minute or so and power it back up, then go to you computer's wireless connection and renew your IP address [that's if you have automatically assigned addresses]. otherwise you might have to check that you router and computer are operating on the same page [ by this I mean, if your router is assigning automatic IP, make sure your computer is not set to use a static IP, In my years of network, this has always been problem I have experienced on some routers]

    My Belkin G Wireless Router cant even get passed step 1. My lap top recieves the signal but their is no internet! Help please

    Since your unable to access internet through the router(wireless) ,& globe light is flashing--I suggest you to refresh the network list and connect to your network again still if it won't work then you need to Re- configure it. Because your Modem(cable/dsl) is working fine. Check the ip address of your computer. if its invalid then you need to do the "reset" on router (ip address should be 192.168.2... range).
    Or else you can call (toll free number) for belkin for reconfiguration
    Hope this suggestion helps for you both...
