    Hi,

    I can get my new PC to connect to my router wirelessly, but not with a wire. I don't get a blinking green light on the ethernet port, but only a continuous orange light. With wi-fi, the PC gets through, obtains an IP address, it's not being blocked on the MAC address...

    Now, I have the following reasons to think the problem is in the router:

    - It's not only my new PC I can't connect with a wire--any other device, Mac or PC, doesn't work, but works with wi-fi;
    - my old PC connects fine with a wire. I'm using the same wire, on the same Router port when trying with the new one.

    Before attempting a factory reset, I'd like to see if anyone can think of anything...

    Specs: Belkin F6D4230-4 v1; PC: Windows 7 Home Premium

    Thanks!

    OK, it's now too late to delete this post, so I'll just have to admit I'm lazy. I just had to disable the wireless adapter in Windows...

    Thanks for posting the solution. I would not have arrived at that so quickly, as usually multiple connections will work.
