From the manual -

Internet Green Blinking Internet activity
Solid on Internet connectivity, no activity

Red Blinking Wireless activity, no security
Solid on No wireless activity, no security

Is the wireless AP enabled in the routers interface?

Try without any encryption temporarily until your get the connection up and running.

is disabled, connection between the wlan and router is 100%..if the internet light is flashing how is it connecting as when i open ie6 i do not get a choice of the router to connect with, ethernet light is off, device manager when the usb is in shows the yellow question mark but cannot seem to find any drivers at speedtouch to find it...paz
