      They will sometimes flicker when the connection is in use, but if they are flashing on and off, it looks like it may be on it's way out. Check that the plugs are pushed in fully at both ends. Try a reset, push a biro in the hole under the aerial for about 10 secs, see if this fixes it.

      Thanks for that, i tried resetting but it still flickers badly when i am downloading or on a site like bit comet. apart from the line dropping a few times since i was activated ( last saturday )and having trouble setting up my sky email, which i now have ok, i get pretty good speeds compared to the orange ip i was on previously. as i am writing this, the lights are not flickering,perhaps i am being over cautious!! anyway, thanks for your reply.

      The flickering indicates that data transfer is taking place between the router and the internet.

      The lights should flicker, but not flash on and off. If they are just flickering, there is nothing to worry about.
