Your Belkin wireless router cannot connect to the internet via a cable modem for various reasons, some of which may be out of your control. A Belkin wireless router is correctly connected to a functioning cable modem, you must provide Internet access. However, you can solve various problems if you are unable to connect.
Cable Modem Offline
Each cable modem has different status LEDs on. While different cable modems will have different LED indicators, most cable modems provide both power and signal cables. In most cases, the power and signal indicators must be solid and not blinking. If your off light – anyway the signal indicator, which is sometimes referred to as “cable” is off or blinking – contact your cable internet service provider to check the status of the network.
Bad cable or incorrect installation
A poor Ethernet cable or an Ethernet cable installed in the wrong position on the router can cause the Belkin wireless router to fail in the connection on the cable modem. Most cable modems have an Ethernet port. An Ethernet cable must connect from the port on the cable modem to the “internet” port on the Belkin wireless router. The Belkin router also typically has four Ethernet “LAN” ports. The LAN ports must close on the computers on your local network, not on the cable modem.
Wrong Cable Modem Configuration
In most cases, the cable internet provider pre-configures the cable modem for you. In some cases, you may need to configure the cable modem yourself, especially if your cable internet provider does not provide the cable modem with your account. You can change the settings of the cable modem by connecting it directly to a computer with an Ethernet cable. A common situation is that a new device replaces the old device, the one that was initially connected to the cable modem, such as a computer or another router.
When this situation occurs, the cable modem must be turned off and on again. When a cable modem is turned on and is also connected to the internet service provider, it associates the hardware Media Access Control address with the device directly connected, such as a computer or router. When this device changes, the cable modem must be turned off and updated to the new MAC address.
Wrong Router Configuration
Most cable modems offer an IP address to the router automatically. Belkin wireless routers are configured by default to automatically get an IP address from the cable modem. However, if your internet provider has you with a static IP, as is often the case for business-class accounts, or if your router uses an alternative configuration, the router must be configured to work with the cable modem.
