hi, of late the data light on the adsl wireless router keeps flashing, hour after hour, and it is not a slow blink, it is going fifteen to the dozen.........anyone else's do the same? or is there some setting so that it flashes only when data is moving............thanks.

I don't ahve a Router, but I am on ADSL, via a USB modem.

If I dont actually look at the modem, the lights appear to remain constant. Hovever if I actually stare at them, while up/down-loading, the USB light does flicker as data transfer takes place. It's so fast that I can't see it unless I look right at it.

Does this sound like what you have?

hi, mine is going on and off for hours on end, because i thought i had a problem with the router, i got another adsl modem to try, and i am sure it has been doing it since the install of the other one, which is a voyager 100...I am now back with the voyager 2000....thanks

I presume that you've got your network secured? ie nobody is stealing your bandwidth.

hi...very strange you should say that, I have two laptops running, like to see the wife sometimes, so one is downstairs and one up....last night, on the control panel it said (there are 3 computers connected to the voyager).

So there's the problem then.......

The router is not secure, Some one outside using your BB connection, You should encrypt the Router and Laptops
