Please recheck the power supply adapter if the power is passing properly or not.If there is no problem with the power supply, then try pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds. Then check if there is any blink of the LED. If no response then there might be a problem with your routers power circuit or motherboard

Check bios to see if on-board wired/wireless NIC was disabled, if not, NIC may be bad. Try a usb wi-fi adapter to communicate with router.

Whenever you're asking for technical help with an electronic device, please try to give device details. e.g. model and version numbers, at minimum. Belkin model numbers typically start with F#D (like F5D, F7D, F9D, et cetera)...

You should check Belkin's web site for firmware update availability to your router. I see at least 2 different models on their website that they call "Basic Wireless Router" and manufacturer firmware is generally not interchangeable between models.

If a newer firmware is available for your router, consult
http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?rnId=497 for instructions on how to upgrade the firmware. Your profile doesn't tell us where in the world you are, and you didn't mention that info, so there's no way for anyone that replies to localize the links for you (that's why I posted a link to Belkin's USA support site).

Hi Shaifali,
No worries!
- Can you log back into the router? with the new password or with the old one?
-Has your router been totally re-setted to factory defaults?
- I think you have changed the PPoE connection password which is the internet link password to ISP instead of the router password?

Let me know these questions and I will help you resolve this issue

The quick fix: make sure your router's DNS settings are properly set to an External IP address. If DNS1 or DNS2 show up as internal IPs such as: 192.168.1.x, then your Roku won't connect to the Internet.

Here is the detailed fix:

  • Login to your router. (typically this is done through an internal ip address like You enter this IP address directly into your web browser same as you would a website. **NOTE some people actually enter web addresses into Google, and then navigate that way. This won't work. Enter the IP address directly into the browser's Location or Navigation bar at the top. This will take you to your router's login screen. *NOTE sometimes the router's default password is "password". But it's possible that your password was changed during installation. If you don't have your router's password, contact your Internet provider.

  • Once logged into your router, navigate to its DNS settings. My guess is that if your Roku isn't working, it's because rather than an external IP address being used for your DNS, the router is set to use an internal IP address. (Your computer is able to overcome this because it has built-in DNS settings, but the Roku looks to the router for this information.)

  • Replace the internal DNS address with a public DNS address. What worked for us was using Google's public DNS. So set DNS1 to and DNS2 to .

  • Save your settings.

  • Run the Roku setup again. If you still aren't able to connect to the Internet, then bounce (unplug) the router. Leave it unplugged for 15 seconds. Then power it back up. Try again with the Roku. If that doesn't work, bounce the Roku. Leave it unplugged for 15 seconds, plug the power back in. The 15-second rule with computers and hardware is surprisingly effective.

  • If you've set the DNS properly, your Roku should now (finally) connect to the Internet. When this happens, it will complete its setup process and you should be good to go.

Look at your router data plate and then Google "[your router name] default user name and password". You should be able to find the defaults and use them. They should be in your manual or in the documentation/setup program on your CD also.
