You just have to restart the router it self. i mean take out the power adapter and plug it back. No need to press the reset button as it may put back the router to factory default.

These kind of issues are common. The DHCP service (which gives IP to your computer and wireless device) hangs up some times on most routers.

Let me know if you still face the problem after power cycling the router.

How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection

  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.

    I check all connection, all wires and internet connection and the port leds lights do not light on, why?

    If when you plug in the power you get the Post light flashes and then no lights you may need to do a hard reset of the router.

    If you get no Post light flashes when you plug in the power then your router power supply is most likely the culprit.

    Netgear WGR614 v6 router drops connection

    Hi, what ISP are you using (aol,tiscali...?), and how are you connecting to the router? Wired or wireless? I had similar problems with mine, it wouldn't connect or would drop connection, or loose all the settings. I updated the firmware to the latest from here:-

    Be sure this is the correct model as firmware differes from model to model.
    Then I had to manually configure my ISP settings etc. Or you may have software from your ISP which configures for you.
    Hope this helps.

    There are two things involved in getting disconnected either your comp is getting disconnected or your router.
    Instance 1
    Computer getting disconnected connect your comp and router with ethernet cable if using wireless. Because at times it's not router but the wireless connectivity that gets loost.
    Instance 2
    Router getting disconnected...
    Reset your router by holding the reset pin at the back of your router for 15 secs and lights will start flashing on router wait for 1 min you'll have router reset to default settings and now check that dsl or internet light on your router is flashing or static if flashing contact your isp issue with the line if static run the disc for router installation again and it'll remain connected after successful installation.
