Try resetting the router. If it does not work then you will have to update the firmware of the router. To do that you have to download the firmware file of the router ( it will have an extension of .bin). Save the file in your pc and go to the router's page and update it. It will look for a .bin file. Browse to the location where you downloaded the firmware and update.

What to do when security light is orange?


Reboot
  • The most basic way to attempt to fix a router problem is to reboot the device. This is accomplished by unplugging the powericon1.png cord, waiting for a minute and then plugging the power connector back in. If the orange light continues to blink, you will have to update its firmware.
Download New Firmware
  • Even though the wireless router is malfunctioning, downloading new firmware is possible by disconnecting the malfunctioning Linksys device from the Internet connection in the wall, then using that jack to plug your machine directly to the Internet. If this is not possible, use another computericon1.png that can connect to the Internet. You can download a firmware update directly from Linksys (see Resources).
Install New Firmware
  • Once you have the firmware update available on the computer affected by the malfunctioning router, open the file and follow the instructions to upgrade the devices firmware.

Tip

Internet keeps disconnecting - Internet disconnect


Having intermittent internet disconnects? There could be a couple of causes for this issue. Your internet could be degraded when it gets to your house causing disconnects. You will have to contact your Internet Service Provider in order to have them resolve this issue. Normally, they will replace splitters and may even replace lines outside of your house. You could also be having problems with the modem directly. The may replace this. If you have a modem that you bought that was not provided by your ISP, you can try to update the firmware on the modem.

If using a modem
I recommend you unplug the router, plug the computer directly in the modem and see if you still have the problem. If you still have the problem then you know it is just the modem. If the problem resolves itself then you know the most likely culprit is the router.

I would also recommend that you update your router firmware as well. Do a google search for the brand name of the router and go to the companies website, look in the support/downloads section for updated software.
--If possible, try a different Ethernet port on your router. You may have a bad port.
--Take out and reinsert all Ethernet cables on your network. Loose cables can cause disconnects.
--If possible, replace the Ethernet cables. Bad cables can cause this.

Lastly, you could be having an issue with the Network card(NIC) on your computer. Network cards are either built into the modem or external(a card you insert into the motherboard). Using the process of elimination and the steps above, you can hopefully narrow down the problem to one specific component of your network.

Hi,

The problem which your are experiencing is an intermittent connection , for this you can try updating the firmware on the router and observe the connection. Still if the problem persists then its obvious that the router has gone bad.

Please let me know the model number of the router to send the firmware version of it.

Thanks in Advance!

With Regards,
Prema.
