I have the same problem with my router I need help. Belkin doesnt help me they just tell me to do the same thing over and over again and it still ends up the same way a blinking orange modem light on my router. I pushed in the reset button on the back of the router, logged in to the router went and restored all the factory settings, and than went to mac address witch is what they tell me to do and clone the address, than I go to ssid and name my network, than I change my channel to 9, I am using the 20mhz not the 20/40mhz setting, I am using, the 802.11b,g, and N setting, I save my settings, than I go to security and I create a 64bit key, than I select on my reserve MAC address number for 1 day it is default at "forever" but that always gives me problems. Now that I'm all set I save all my settings that I placed. I unplug the modem and the router for about 1 minutes, than I plug the power cored back into the modem and the same for the router. Now the following lights are on and blue, wired, security, router. The router light is blinking orange but it will do this for about a minute. Now I'm connected but for only about 9 hours than I will have a blinking orange modem light this happens every day and I am getting tired of doing the same routine when I wake up every day go over to the modem, and the router and unplug them for about 3 minutes than plug them back in at the same time than I get Internet for another 9 hours. So that's my situation I really need some help Belkin custom support has not done anything to help me so far that I couldn't do myself. I mean they even had me put in a custom mac address and change my default gateway than that disabled my LAN connection through the router so I don't want to call them again so they can mess up what I have already.
