WIFI light keeps rapidly blinking. I read the other "solutions" which arent solutions at all. My network is secure and I am losing connectivity and speed. I live in a small apartment so its not too far away from my devices. Its connected to an iphone and a xbox one. Xbox one repeatedly cannot connect as well as my iphone. Thanks for the drops in service day after day comcast....gotta love monopolies

Try accessing your router wifi settings and changing the channel ( sometimes called the Control Channel) .

I has a range of numbers from 1 to 11 I think.  Try changing it to a different channel from the one there.

Comcast tells me it's ok. the wifi is transmitting. which concerns me. my wifi is being used somewhere else? he checked it and no one else was on it? so go figure.

if you have an iphone (may be available for android too) download free app fing. fing will scan the network you are connected to on that iphone and report the devices on your router along with their IP/MAC address.
