Hi, my name isXXXXX will be happy to assist you with this issue.
What is the make & model of your router?
Belken F7d2301 v1
Excuse me, Belkin F7D2301 v1
Just bought the darned thing today too.
It seems we are having some difficulty with chat. i will switch this to Q&A
Do you have an answer, Brad? the only one i see is the one in the middle, that maybe one over WPS. Ha!
WPS stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup, and it is a way for your router to add a device to the network that also support WPS. Are you using the WPS button on your router to add devices to the network? If your computer does not support WPS, then you should be able to join the network manually by typing in any network password XXXXX setup on the router. If the top light is flashing amber, that means that your router cannot detect the modem. If you have not tried setting up your router using the Belkin Setup CD, I recommend setting it up that way. Insert the CD in your computer and follow the prompts on the screen. If you still have problems after running Belkin Setup, see the following steps taken from the manual for your router:
Belkin Setup completed installation, but I cannot browse the
Web. The light on the front of my Router is solid amber.
1. Use the troubleshooting suggestions within Belkin Setup.
2. If your ISP requires a user name and password, make sure that
you have typed in your user name and password XXXXX Some
user names require that the ISP's domain may be at the end of the
name. Example: "firstname.lastname@example.org". The "@myisp.com" part of
the user name may need to be typed as well as your user name.
3. If you have a static connection, your ISP will have
assigned you an IP address, subnet mask, and gateway
address. Please re-run Belkin Setup and enter this
information when a static connection is mentioned.
4. You may need to configure your Router to meet
the specific requirements of your ISP. To search
our knowledge base for ISP-specific issues, go to:
http://www.belkin.com/support and type in "ISP".
5. If you continue to have no Internet connection, refer
to "Manually Configuring Network Settings" in this
manual for an alternative setup method.
Please let me know if you are still having problems with your setup. You can download the product manual from the Belkin website (http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=509531)
