    Can somebody assist me in fixing the Linksys router blinking orange issue?  Here, I am explaining my problem. so you can understand it completely.

    I own a Linksys n series router. it works for some time and then starts flashing yellow or orange whatever you called it. sorry, I am little sick in recognizing the colors.

    Whenever I am unable to access the internet from my Linksys wifi router. I just have to power cycle my devices again.

    When I get the internet for a while but no stability?

    So please advise me, how do I fix Linksys router flashing amber light problem.

    thank you in advance.

    About a month ago, I was having a similar problem with my Linksys Wifi Router. At that time, I called Linksys Router expert at toll-free- 1800-301-8767. they had fixed my problem. you should also call them once.
    Did you examine the internet status on your modem? perhaps you are getting blinking orange light on your Linksys router due to the ISP problem.

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

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

    you need to follow the instructions given below.

    differently, you need to request your isp to replace your ISP modem.

    • Don’t neglect to inspect the cable status. If you continue using an old ethernet cable or your cable has a cut. you should try to replace that cable with the new cable, later check do you still face Linksys router blinking orange problem.
    • Do you have the newest variant of firmware into your router? if your answer is no? You should go forward and update the firmware quickly. you may get the latest firmware from linksys official website. 
    • After following all those instructions, If you still deal with Linksys router blinking orange problem. just go ahead and factory restores it.

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

    Please check your Internet cable is combined with your router or not. The wire which is coming from ISP (Internet Service Provider) modem is Internet cable hereabouts.
