      Internet Light (@) Flashing Green and Amber rapidly.

      Recently I have had alot of 'mini' dropouts with my connection.

      When it happens the internet light will intermittently flash green>amber>green and so on.

      -I have tried new filters.
      -There is no noise on my phone line.
      -I am plugged into the master socket.

      I'm thinking after looking into it that this might be a router failure.

      Current stats after recent dropout...

      Connection Speed 8800 kbps 797 kbps
      Line Attenuation 34 db 19 db
      Noise Margin 8 db 16 db
      For 1 year + I was synced at 13000 kbps + and in recent months its done nothing but drop, I also had
      an upstream of 1000 kbps +.

      Is the rapid green/amber flashing light a known problem? Should I try for a new router from sky?

      Thanks for the help.

      There is a chance that this is a faulty PSU. Do you have a spare 12v PSU which will fit. As long as it is at least .75a output it should be OK. Failing that all you can do is call Sky and tell them you think your router is faulty.

      Your sync speed is a bit low you should have around 10-12Mb, but get the router problem sorted out first..
