This is normal - indicates internet traffic. Don't worry about it so long as all the lights are green. The lights will turn orange if there is a fault of any kind.

Hope that helps!

How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection

  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.

    Master-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a pushpin into the router hole. Keep the pin pushed into the hole for 10 seconds. The lights on the router will flash and then the power/ready light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use.

    Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4

    Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

    Internet light keeps blinking

    Disconnect all "wired" computers.
    Shutdown all "wireless" devices (iPod Touch, wireless laptop).
    If the light still blinks, then either this is "normal" for your router,
    or your router has been "hacked" by computer-hackers.

    Contact your ISP for advice.

    Hi jackmyrtue,

    Here's what the lights on the front indicate:

    • Solid Blue Wireless security is on
    B. Wireless-Computer Status
    • OFF Wireless computer is not present
    • Solid Blue Wireless computer is connected to the Router
    • Blinking Amber Problem with wireless computer onnecting properly to the Router

    • OFF Wired computer is not present
    • Solid Blue Wired computer is connected to the Router
    • Blinking Amber Problem with wired computer connecting properly to the Router
    D. Router/Power Status
    • When you apply power to the Router or restart it, a short period of time elapses while the Router boots up. During this time, the "router" icon blinks.
    • When the Router has completely booted up, the "router" icon becomes a solid light, indicating the Router is ready for use.
    • OFF Router is off
    • Blinking Blue Router is booting up
    • Solid Blue Router is on and ready
    E. Modem Status

    • Solid Blue Router is connected to modem and functioning properly
    • Blinking Amber Problem with modem
    F. Internet Status
    This unique icon shows you when the Router is connected to the
    • Internet. When the light is off, the Router is NOT connected to the Internet.
    • When the light is blinking amber, the Router is attempting to connect to the Internet.
    • When the light is solid blue, the Router is connected to the Internet.
    When using the "Disconnect after x minutes" feature, this icon becomes extremely useful in monitoring
    the status of your Router’s connection.

    • OFF Router is NOT connected to the Internet

    In the address bat type in the following..
    look on the left of the screen you can see DNS, if not already ticked, tick the the little box which states.
    '' Automatically assign DNS by IP'' then Apply Changes.
    Or, Go Straigt down to the bottom and go to system settings, also go down to the very bottom. At this poin you can see A option or '' Advanced Featue! '' Menu saying, UnPn or something lol, click the box which says enable or something.

    Hope this has helped
