With no laptops or computers turned on in my home, why would my Belkin Wireless G router.............Modem, Wireless and internet lights be blinking like a christmas tree? I assumed that with no activity...

Make sure your router's wireless is not being used by outsiders. Is your Belkin secure enough with a WPA or WEP key? If not, then it is shared and could be used by anyone that can detect your wireless. If it is secured, they you can just reset your router by holding the reset button for 8 to 10 seconds until the lights restarts. This will make the router reset to factory defaults. After this, you can assign a new password for the router for security.

Hope this helps. THank you for using FIxYa.

Router/power light constantly flashing cannot make any connection to computer

try to reset the router. On the router you will find the reset button. press it and hold it down for 30 seconds. release the reset after 30 seconds. wait for 1 minute. unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and check if the power light stays solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
check if the power light stays solid.
check the IP address on the computer. If you are getting a valid IP address then try to open the set up page of the router.
If you are not getting the valid IP address and power light is not solid then I think you will need a new router.

Security light and modem light only

Have you reset the button on the back of the router? That may be the problem, if you haven't. Any time you lose power, you will need to check that, just automatically reset it.
