The 2nd light on my router the Internet LED is orange. I have unplugged and also reset the router but nothing works on that light is still orange and to my understanding that light is suppose to be lit according to manuals. Also as i go to install this router the setup keeps telling me the default password and username is needed and the router is brand new. Why does it keep asking that? Is the router on standby?? HELP!!
I'm not sure I understand what you are saying, but to access your router to configure it, make sure you have a wired connection to the router. Insure that your Internet modem is connected to the router with a network Patch cable, and not a crossover cable. If you are trying to use the cable that was installed by your service provider to hook your modem to your router, chances are it's a patch cable and that will not work. You do not need to use the setup CD. Enter 192.168.0.1 into your browser's address bar, and then you should be presented with the login screen for the router. The default password is admin and there is no username.
You can change that once you log on.
hope this helps.
