      Re: RED flashing light

      What red light are you referring to? If it is the router internet light, try using another PSU, this is one of the symptoms of this part failing.

      Re: RED flashing light

      I presume you have the sagem 2504N as per your profile? The internet light on the 2504N can show more of a red colour when the other Sky routers show amber in the same circumstances. Solid red internet light on the 2504 (old v2 sagem) = PSU failure.

      If the internet light is going from green - off - flashing red, then it's the router intermittently dropping sync.

      Any noise or issues with your phone?
      Explain your set-up i.e. how many telephone sockets in use, is the router at the master socket, any extension cables in use etc.

      Re: RED flashing light

      I have a PSU from another old router, the dark grey one. This has not solved my issue. I am 'paranoid' I have health issues.
      When the router goes offline I am always at one particular site.. how can I know an attack from coincidence? The router does not malfunction all the time.
      I have on that forum a guy who is psychotic by admission and he is always asking questions about my home location.

      Re: RED flashing light

      post your router statistics looks like your getting drop out on your line and then router losing sync

      any noise on your telephone line ? if so change filter and recheck plug in telephone dial 0 if have noise on telephone then this causing issue ,look for test socket and try again if still noise call tech support for line test
