    It has worked fine until July 2016 but then started creating so many problems. I am going to point them down below.
    1. Every morning, when I try to surf the internet. I found my belkin router blinking orange. so I have to restart my modem once and then it starts working fine.
    2. I am having frequent disconnect problem with one windows pc. Each time, when I try to connect my pc to the wifi.
    Sometimes, it shows the limited connectivity, and sometimes, it gets connected to the internet successfully, but after few hours it just disconnects itself.
    Then I have to restart my computer and router, after that it connects itself.
    3. If there is a power outage in my area, once the power comes back, I find my belkin router blinking orange again.
