      Orange light flashing- no internet

      This problem started on Friday night and meant internet connectivity was lost for a few minutes, but it corrected itself. It's done it about an hour ago and despite power restarts and a reset it's still doing it and this means no internet. The wireless and power light is green, every 10 seconds or so the orange internet light will come on, blink a bit and then stop.

      Any ideas? Would I be able to get stats?

      Oh, you can still get stats. They're near identical to when I last posted on these forums, no weird noise margin or anything that I saw when searching previous related topics.

      Could this be the router packing up? It's the original one I got in July 2007.

      Could indeed be, I'd probably place my money on it. However, let's confirm the following first:

      - Any issues or noise on your phone line?
      - Connect the router to the test socket with a different filter using the short grey dsl cable that Sky provided. 'i' Light still off/flashing amber?
      - Do you have another router that you can try?

      No real issues to speak of.
      It's been working perfectly for a few hours now, so I can't test it. Suspect tomorrow there'll be another period where it goes off though.
      Unfortunately not.

      Take and post your stats while you are connected.
