I have brought a new Belkin n150 Wireless Accespoint/Router/Modem. It worked properly for a month. Since yesterday I am facing a strange problem.

  1. When I power on the modem all lights power/modem/internet boots up and working fine.
  2. After 10-15 mins, all of a sudden I am unable to connect to Internet but i could see all lights are still on. I MEAN ITS STILL ON (Seems like struck).
  3. If I immediately power off and power on all lights stays still and no internet connection.
  4. If I turn it off for some time say 10 mins and then I power on, its working as I mentioned in #1, again after 10 mins issues mentioned in #2,#3 and #4 continues.
  5. More important when its struck (all lights still on), I am unable to connect to the N150 configuration page (

I really confused what is going on with my router.

Steps taken

  • Checked connectivity
  • Re-connected all wires
  • Tried restore factory settings (when I am able to connect for 10 mins)
  • Tried to press & hold reset button (not working when modem lights still on)

How can I over come this problem ?

"I have brought a new modem Belkin n150' -- Belkin N150 seems to be a wireless router. There's no mention of modem capability. – sawdust Mar 19 '13 at 7:16
When you say "ADSL home page", do you mean the administrative page for your modem? Or for the N150? It sounds like you may have two routers (The N150 and one built into your ADSL modem), which is a complicated configuration to get right. – David Schwartz Mar 19 '13 at 8:45
I meant the modem home page!! FYI, My modem model… – Umezz Mar 19 '13 at 8:59
Is the firmware up-to-date? Any chance that it is overheating? – sawdust Mar 20 '13 at 2:23
After leaving it powered off (and cooling down) it works for 10 minutes. That really sounds like an overheating issue. Was it moved in the last month. Is is next to a window and has the summer started? Or next to a heating int he winter? Etc etc. – Hennes Feb 9 at 10:36
