If you are unable to see the light, then just re-insert the adapter. You can also update the wireless adapter software and drivers.
Improper network settings
You can use Network Assistant available in your system for validating your wired and wireless network settings. You need to download it from the original site from where the licensed product is available. You can also go to the manufacturer’s website. Ensure that you are using an authentic site. While downloading from the manufacturer’s website, you need to ensure that the settings in your Samsung Go N315 are compatible with the adapter.
The power signal should be steady. If it is not enabled, then just check the power adapter. The test light is enabled only when you turn ‘on’ or reset the router. If it is always enabled, then there might be some mechanical problem. You need to repair the router. The Internet link should be enabled, if the router is connected to a LAN, DSL, or cable modem. And the DSL or cable modem should be enabled and the light should be steady.
