Wireless Router always active

  ened 15:18 16 Feb 2008

I have today set up a Netgear Wireless Router.

I am a tad concerned because the light which shows data is being transmitted is always blinking.

I turned the computer off but it still blinks yet no data could be coming out or going into my machine.

One of the first jobs I did was to change the password and mine is the only computer linked up at the moment (in this flat anyway).

Is this anything to worry about?

It's the modem handshaking with the exchange modem.

Thanks for that Graham.

I'm used to the modem powering down with the computer is there much power used when it is idle and is it advisable to unplug it?
