    The globe keeps flashing orange and I can't connect to the internet because of this

    The blinking globe means that the router no longer has access to the Internet. The two most common causes are that:
    1. Your Internet connection is down, or more likely,
    2. You Internet provider has changed your IP address the the modem or router need to be reset to acquire the correct address.

    Belkin has a decent site for general troubleshooting located here.
    And a more general, but detailed troubleshooting guide can be found here.

    Router connection

    > router should be turned off after use

    Nonsense. The router uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) to obtain (only!) one IP-address from your I.S.P. Each IP-address comes with a "lease", i.e., "use this IP-address for the next NN hours, and after that time, send a request to 'renew' the IP-address for another NN hours". This should(!) happen automatically -- without a need to restart the router.

    So, if only the two "wireless" laptops are having the problem, the problem is inside the router.
    Connect to the web-server "inside" the router, and look at the "status" web-page, and then the "log-files" web-page, to see what error-messages have been recorded.

    Contact belkin for the IP address to change your router setting internally. For example: Linksys is
    Putting this address in your address bar will dial you into your router setting if you have a Linksys router. Each router manufacturer may have a different IP address. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

    Cannot connect to internet. router modem and globe lights blinking amber.

    If the modem light is blinking it means that there is activity, so this is normal.

    However, the globe/internet light needs to be solid green. If it is blinking it means it is attempting to connect to the internet.

    Make sure first that the internet connection is working when directly connected to the modem. If yes, then the router might not be configured properly. To check the configuration on the router, access the setup page by using a web browser. Type in the address bar.

    By default the password should be left empty.

    Once in the setup page of the router, go to Internet WAN. Select the connection that your ISP is using. Either, PPPOE (requires a username and password from ISP) or Dynamic, (the settings are obtained automatically from the ISP). If you are not sure, contact your ISP.

    I hope this helps!

    Belkin router signal not showing up for Wii or Laptop.

    If no signal, check router config. Use your
    internet browser to look at router's settings.
    By default the password on most Belkin routers is left blank, and the default IP address is Check all you router's wireless settings in case disabled or incorrect. Make sure the laptop's wifi button has been toggled to OFF. Routers do die - esp the lowend ones. New wireless G router = $20 on sale.

    Lights wont turn off even if netwrk wires are unplugged..

    You'll have to hold your reset button down for atleast 10 seconds, or even more, then you'll have to reconfigure you entire connnection at address
    However before doing that, try and power down the whole unit for a minute or so and power it back up, then go to you computer's wireless connection and renew your IP address [that's if you have automatically assigned addresses]. otherwise you might have to check that you router and computer are operating on the same page [ by this I mean, if your router is assigning automatic IP, make sure your computer is not set to use a static IP, In my years of network, this has always been problem I have experienced on some routers]

    Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers

    1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
    2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
    3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
    Hope this helps!

    We've just moved house and have aquired to belking routers a belkin wireless pre n and a belkin ADSL G Plus MIMO I want to use the latter as a bridge how can I?

    You need to access the setup page of your Belking router and go to the wireless setup, look fro Use as Access Point, now just a reminder this will defeat the NAT IP sharing feature of the router. Configure the IP address of the router to the same subnet as the network your tying to bridge here's the more detailed procedure:

    1. Enable the AP mode by selecting "Enable" in the Use Access Point only page. When you select this option you can now change the IP Settings.

    2. Set your IP settings to match your network. Click "Apply Changes"

    3. Connect a cable from the LAN port of the router to your existing network.
