There are two things you can try, however if the router has recieved damage caused by a power surge it is probably cheaper to replace it than repair it if the resets don't work.
You can try a reset by unplugging and leaving unplugged for several minutes.
Check the routers configuration settings (especially if you have a static IP address) as a surge in power may have caused an unintentional reset of the device.
Failing that there should be a small pinhole with an indented button on the back which you can press and hold with a pen or paperclip and cause the router to reset to default settings.
Check the configuration again and make sure it is set up correctly for your network and your ISP
If you are having any trouble checking your configuration please tell me the following:
Static IP ?
Are you able to log into the routers homepage?
Are the lights on the router still behaving normally (turn off and on as devices are connected/disconnected)?
Thanks
Hope that helps

Sounds like you have given it a good shot. Hopefully the power outage did not 'brown out' which causes damage to some devices. Here is what I would do. With everything connected and powered up, do a hard reset of your modem/router by pressing the recessed button for 10 secs or so. Then log on and re-enter you user name and password and allow DHCP to find all the connected devices. Reserve addresses if you want to. This has worked for me when I had a similar problem. Good luck!

Can't connect to internet through router wired or wirelessly Belkin N750 F9K1103 after ISP dropped out for one hour


Unplug the ISP modem completely, power, and cable. There might be a recycle (a quick push) on the modem as well. Some modems have a battery backup and will stay lit, if not connect the power, reboot and then connect the cable. The modem may take a while to fully reload after reconnecting. Then do the same with the router. Only do a quick push. Holding it in will clear custom settings on the router.

You should have green on both the modem and the router now. If not you have this to inform the ISP of your troubleshooting. GL

Some people turn everything off at night and then when they turn things back on everything starts powering up. If you do this, it may be the problem because you have the modem and the router starting up at the same time. If the router finishes before the modem then it will drop.

Just make sure that you turn your wireless router on after the modem had booted up. This problem also happens when you have a power outage in the house and they both boot up at the same time.

When ever you are experiencing drops, just go unplug the wireless router then plug it back after about 30 seconds.

There must be a small reset button on your router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Release it. wait for one minute. Now unplug the power and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
Once you reset the router, it will come back to factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router form the start according to your Internet service provider.

Not recognized by cable modem


Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

Internet Light keeps blinking - all others are out - No internet


HI,

Blinking green internet light is normal BUT you must check if theres any dsl outage in your area..You can contact your ISP for that.

But then maybe you can try this:

Turn your PC off > then you modem or router.. after 60 secs turn your modem or router ON first then your PC and check if you can go online.

If you called your internet service provider {ISP} and no reported outage let me know and we'l solution for that.

Keep me posted.

Cheers.
