There might be an issue with your internet connection instead of your router and modem. To make sure, check the WAN LED on your Orbi and ensure it's blinking. Make sure the WAN LED is not solid or completely off. The DSL lights should be green, and the WiFi indicator LED should be blinking.


It's an exceptional case and happens only if you are using an older desktop or WiFi card. If you are getting internet access on your PC by router via an ethernet cable, chances are there is a wireless connectivity barrier between these two devices. One way to fix that is by changing the WiFi mode.

There are several wireless modes available in the Orbi setup panel. Usually, the wireless mode is set to 8021.11 b/g/n and it works fine for most network devices. Sometimes, old devices like laptops. WiFi cards and smartphones are not compatible with the 802.11 b/g/n bandwidth and result in a communication barrier.


Sometimes, the DNS cache conflict can lead to no internet access error. You can flush DNS to make sure it isn't causing internet issues. Run CMD with admin rights and follow the below-mentioned command:

ipconfig /flushdns

Reset files stored by Windows to access the internet:
1. netsh winsock reset
2. netsh int ip reset

Release your old IP address and set a new IP automatically.
1. ipconfig /release
2. ipconfig /renew

If this doesn’t work, follow the below-mentioned commands:
1. ipconfig/flushdns
2. nbtstat -R
3. nbtstat -RR
4. netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
5. netsh winsock reset
