Wan light flashing green

Answered
I have an NBN connection using a Telstra TG797n v3 modem, I was wondering if the WAN and Internet lights should be flashing or is there a connection issue? They remain solid for a short period of time (1-2mins) then start flashing again, they are always green never red, but flash at different rates over time.
Also tonight I lost the signal altogether but I am blaming NBN for that as a friend with a different provider also lost his connection.

Re: Wan light flashing green

Hi ya Hoglet 

 

I don't believe your "WAN" light should flash at all.

 

I have the same model modem and while the ethernet, wireless and internet lights will flash my WAN light is always solid green when my connection is up..

 

Perhaps a quick call to technical support 133933 and have them check things out for you. 

 

Cheers

Shouldn't be anything to be concerned about Hoglety, normally that's a good sign that everything is running along OK and that there is inter device and net activety. You might wonder sometimes why they flash when you aren't activetly doing something on your computer but there are background processes in computers etc. like checks for updates etc. that run.
