Reply To: Why Is My Netgear Router Blinking Orange Internet Light?


John N. Ellis

What color of light can you see on your ISP modem? is it blue or orange?

if you have an orange one, then it indicates, this problem belongs to your ISP. there is nothing wrong with your Netgear router. in that case, you have to call them and ask them to fix the problem. they will send a guy to troubleshoot the internet connection.


But somehow, if you manage to get the blue or green light on your modem, but only your netgear router is blinking orange.

Then you need to check the internet connection first. you need to unplug the router from the modem and replug it.

after that, you need to power cycle your router and modem once.

If your Netgear router is still giving you flashing amber light yet, you need to factory restore your router and reconfigure it.

after doing this, your router will start working fine.
