I am not able to connect to the internet using Belkin N150 Router. I have been able to connect in the past. The router light is solid orange color instead of blue. In the system tray pop up says Wireless hardware cannot be detected on your computer and may have been turned off. Click to learn how to turn your wireless radio on. I have never had wireless radio.
I have pressed the reset button on the router numerous times. When I do so the light turns blue for a few seconds then turns orange. I have also unplugged and replugged in the router but that does not solve the issue.
I am able to connect to the internet without the router.
I do not know the age of the router it was given to me as a gift.
I also do not know the router user name and password if I need to reinstall the software.
Seems when I have installed firewalls I have connection issues. I am not sure if that has to do with the router or if that is a different issue.
Please tell me how to resolve this issue. Is the router no longer any good or is this another issue?
Vista is my OS.
