      Orange LAN 1 light flashes rapidly and connection is lost,reset for 10mins access

      Hi everyone, I really hope someone can help me. I got sky broadband about a month ago and it was working brilliant. In my area I was getting 25mb download speed. Then my Internet started dropping out and some devices would say "Internet connection not stable"
      I checked the router and the set up via sky website an all the lights on the front off my hub are solid white even the smiley face. The problem is the back LAN 1 orange light. I usually flickers now and again but now it's flashes rapidly until I reset the router. When it flashes the Internet drops...any ideas??Thanks for your time!

      When the LAN lights flash rapidly it usually means that data is being transmitted. Check in the Attached devices list that you recognise everything connected. You might also want to run malware scans on the devices you have connected to the router.

      Thanks very much, I checked at there where 4 devices on the network. I got the free signal booster there the other week to help boost the signal upstairs and I don't know if it's related but since then the signal has been really poor. Would the signal booster effect it in anyway? Sorry for asking stupid questions.

      Are all the devices shown yours?

      It should not, but you should disconnect it and see if the problem goes. If it does report it to Sky as you may have a faulty unit.
