Re: Dlink router internet led flashing orange

The orange light that you are getting usually means that your router isn't connecting to the modem, or it is not able to detect it or is unresponsive. So, as a troubleshooting method you should check the manual of the dlink router that might have come with its box package.

Re: Dlink router internet led flashing orange

never mind


this post is now closed

Dlink customer support just repeated the same steps in an never ending loop

so i returned it and purchased a Linksys router and now my network works fine

with the linksys router it only took 10 minutes


i highly RECOMMEND LINKSYS Wireless routers they have awesome Customer service and almost 100% of the time it takes less than 10 minutes to set up
