    I have a Belkin N+ wireless router that is connected to my broadband internet and has been working great for more than a year.

    A couple nights ago, in the middle of my surfing the net, i was cut off and 'checked the modem (working good) and the router, displaying blinking amber lights --modem and internet. I had to restart my router, usually, it would work after that and i could surf again. This time, when it started back up, the router light turned blue and then the modem and internet light started blinking amber. I haven't done anything except chat over the net when it happened. All other lights are blue. I have cycled the modem power, the router power, and restarted the computer and have the same results. I already followed the troubleshooting from Belkin support 192.168... completely restore it to it's factory settings and yet, i still end up not being able to connect in the internet and with that blinking amber lights. I already tried connecting directly from my modem to my win 7 laptop --no problem at all. I could surf and chat. but when i tried connecting it again from modem to router so i can do wireless... Nothing.

    Belkin N+ router F5D8235-4

    Help please?

    You have reset using the reset button via a paperclip, correct?

    Blinking amber usually means a failure of some sort. It can see the connection but has no connection.

    Have you called your ISP to verify their end is 100% up and see if they can see your modem?

    Yes, for the paper clip and the ISP tech guys too. Verified 100% up, modem stable. Right now, i can connect to the internet through cable only --direct --modem to my computer.

    Leave the router unplugged for several hours and then try the reset to factory default settings again. If still no go check the warranty--at least some Belkin routers have a lifetime warranty.
