i have a belkin wireless router. i hook everything up and it works fine for a few minutes. my internet connection and everything is working properly. then the green light on my router turns orange, and i cant get on the internet. my modem works fine, it is just the router that messes up. i dont know if it is something i need to confugure, or if the router is defective and needs replacing. it has done this since i got it.

Try resetting the router, the reset button is usually behind a pinhole on the same surface as the ports.

I do that then it stops working again after a few minutes.

Is the power supply delivering the specified voltage.

Unless your environment is very hot (oh how I'd envy you here in already wintry London) it's unlikely to be overheating issue.

You might try downloading the latest firmware but if this product has behaved like this since purchase, they sold you a dud.

To be honest, Belkin (who may make fine products and be kind to their pets) get a bad press on their routers.
