Troubleshooting the blinking light issue on your Belkin router

Scenario:  My Belkin router has completed installation, but I cannot browse the web.  The light on the front of my router is blinking orange.

Solution:

 
Step 1:
Make sure the that router is connected to your modem with an ethernet cable via the router’s internet (WAN) port.

 
Step 2:
Unplug the modem from its power source and make sure that it's totally turned OFF.  Then re-plug the modem to the power source.

Step 3:
Unplug your router’s power supply, wait for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.  This will cause the router to reestablish communication with the modem.

 
If you still cannot browse the web, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
