Did you check the internet status on your modem? may be you are getting blinking orange light on your linksys router due to the ISP problem.

If your modem is dropping the connection. your router won’t be able to connect to the internet.

So as per my advice, you should check the internet status on your modem. If you have solid green internet light on your modem but flashing orange light on your linksys wifi router only.

then you need to follow the instructions given below.

otherwise, you need to call your isp and ask them to replace your ISP modem.

  • Don’t forget to check the cable status. If you are using an old ethernet cable or your cable has a cut. you should try to replace that cable with the new cable and then check do you still face linksys router blinking orange problem.
  • Do you have an latest version of firmware into your router? if your answer is no? You should go ahead and update the firmware immediately. you may find the latest firmware from linksys official website. 
  • After following all these instructions, If you still deal with linksys router blinking orange problem. just go ahead and factory restore it.

Now configure your router again. It will start working fine.
