Orange light means no internet connection.

Check the cable and settings.

SOURCE: Wireless LED blinking, normal?

i'm having the same probs but, to answer your concern over the blue lights,her'es the deal.
your router has 7 antennas inside and each of the led's represents an antenna. as the router scans for something to connect to the led's will blink. it will eventually lock on to a signal from a wireless laptop or usb reciever and the 2 strongest signals will be used for transmitting/recieving data, shown by 2 solid led's.

This sounds like a common conflict fault.

There are a few things you can do to help reliability

You should first make sure that the modem and router are individually
set up correctly.

Read the guide for router and modem first and if any of it may apply to you then try and do it.

Try the following procedure and write down anything you change so that if you need to go back you know what was changed.

Connect ONLY the MODEM to a pc by wire and nothing else
Go to the start menu and select RUN
In the box type "cmd"
Now in the black screen that has come up type "ipconfig /all"
Take note of the numbers that are in 4 groups e.g. 192.168.1.1
Also take note of the name in front of those numbers !
Write down any numbers where it says DNS too as they may be useful (you only need the ones with numbers not the ones with letters)

Now do the same thing with your modem
If that too has the same IP as your router in "default gateway" then you need to fix that issue as that is probably a part of your problems.
The fix for router modem conflict is to set the router to use a different IP range.
To do this only have the router connected (by wire) and open an internet explorer page (it will fail but that's ok)
In the address bar type the number you got for default gateway above for the router e.g. 192.168.1.1 and press ENTER

When it asks for the user name, give it the one you gave it when you set the router up or the default one from your manual
Also give it the password you gave it when you set it up or once again the default one from the manual.

You now need to look for a box that has the number you just used to get into the router.

It may just say IP address or Starting IP or something similar
That is the number you should change. I usually change the third block e.g. 192.168.2.1 as opposed to 192.168.1.1

You should also have some DNS numbers from the checks further up with the MODEM

You should find the DNS boxes and place those numbers in there. This will allow your computer quicker access to finding things on the internet
Now look for the save settings button and do so.

Reconnect the modem and router. The cable from the modem should go to the YELLOW socket on the router.

Power up the modem and WAIT until all the correct lights are on.
Then do the same with the router.
Now power up a pc and check that you can surf without problems
If not then the problem may lay elsewhere. Go back and re-check.

That should help you out

There should be a reset button on the back on the router. Press and hold down on it, for about minute or so.

Maybe you had a power surge.

The reset button does nothing with the router powered off, basically you hold the reset button in for 30 seconds with the router powered on. Following this you will need to set up the router again as all settings will be reset to factory defaults, from the sounds of it though the router may be dead.

Another reset method is as follows;

1. With the router powered off hold in the reset button,
2. Keep the reset button in, power on the router, wait 30 seconds,
3. Keep the reset button in, power off the router, wait 30 second,
4. Release the reset button.

Did you have wireless disabled?

If you have access to a multimeter check the PSU is working correctly.

Netgear wndr3300 blinking orange light


It depends. Have you checked the Netgear support site for FAQ and the manual. In some routers, orange lights indicate wired 100Mbps connections while green indicates 1000Mbps. In other cases, blinking lights indicated that the router is 'bricked'.
