    Hi all,
    hoping someone can help me. I have a Belkin Wireless N router which I've been using with no issues up until recently. Since about 2 weeks ago, the internet light keeps going orange at random. When this light appears I am then unable to get a wireless network in my house.

    I've ran an ipconfig/all below to see if that helps someone solve my problem.

    How To Power Cyle

    “Power Cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router.

    1) Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.

    2) Wait at least 30 seconds.

    3) Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.

    4) First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.

    5) Next switch on the router (if a seperate device ) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.

    6) Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Try that the next time the light turns orange.

    If it continues, I would contact Belkin and ask if it's common and if there is a simple explanation for it.

    If not, then the router is probably dying. How old is it?

    I have a Belkin Wireless N Router sitting on my desk staring me in the face. It died just about 4 days after the Warranty expired. Though it is not just the Wireless that died, it is even the wired ports that died. The green light turned to orange and stayed that way. What model is your router? Is it F7D2301?
