    Hi there

    I have a Belkin F7D2401 wireless router with built in modem. This has worked fine for a year since purchase. The router has a wired connection to my desktop (running Vista and IE), and was supporting a couple of Blackberry smartphones, a Blackberry playbook and a Kindle. At some point last week, all these devices lost their wifi connectivity. Yesterday, I noticed the WPS light was blinking amber at regular points.

    Although I've next to no technical knowledge, I've reset the router using the button at the back but this hasn't solved the problem.

    Can anyone help me understand what's going wrong, and more importantly how to fix the connectivity on our devices ?

    Thanks

    Grahame Blair

    sounds like the router is faulty

    try powering off and leaving off for 15 minutes and see if that works again

    you could then try logging into the configuration pages and disable the WPS facility and just setup the devices manually ,
    connect to the wireless and enter the security key

    see the user manual here
