      Router lights flashing

      We have a router that likes nothing more than blinking at us for ages then settles down, but recently - it as got worse?
      The first two lights are flashing constantly and the second one in keeps turning orange for a while, what the egg cups is going on
      If i pull the power plug out, wait a while it seems to act normally for the night?

      Re: Router lights flashing

      Flashing lights (assuming you mean the wireless and ADSL lights) are entirely normal - it just denotes that data is being transmitted.

      If by second light you mean the ADSL light, when it turns orange it means it has lost ADSL sync i.e. your connection has dropped - not good unless this is just after you've re-powered the router, when again, this would be normal.
