      Occasional orange and red flashing light

      Hi all

      Am at work at the moment, so not at my home router.

      The last few days every now and then, the green light on my router will go, then it will flash between orange and red.

      After a while it will sort itself out, sometimes it won't and i have to reset it.

      Any ideas?

      Occasionally the phone line will be quite crackly. When I turn the router off, the line is fine. Does it just sound like it needs a new filter?

      Thanks

      It could be the filter or even the Router PSU failing. The latter seems to be fairly common. Try changing the filter first.

      Since the upgrade I have had 22mb! but then intermittent connections, I contacted Sky and they downgraded me to 18mb, but similar problems to yours with the lights going to orange losing connection and then coming back
