      Router light flickering when pc off......

      Hi, I am not brilliant with pc's and even worse when it comes to routers. I have only been using one for about a month.

      For the past could of days, when I turn the pc off, my green Internet light on my router shows traffic, as in it flickers all the time. Normally when my pc is off, the lights just stay solid green.

      Am I right in thinking this? If I am, how can I tell where its coming from, and how do I stop it from happening.

      Thanks.

      John.

      Normal practise as you router is still synched with the exchange.

      To stop it either unplug the router power lead or if a Black router, switch it off on the back. I wouldn't worry its just normal activity.
