WiFi Light Rapidly Blinking

WiFi Light Rapidly Blinking

When I got up today my WiFi light on the modem was rapidly flashing. This has never done this before and I have had this specific modem for a year. This is a Comcast modem and there is no router on the system. No other changes in the house as far as computer, phones or data devices. Exactly as it has been in the past. Why is it flashing now and not before...what has changed?

A recent software / firmware update is now causing the light to behave that way. It's nothing to be concerned about.

Re: WiFi Light Rapidly Blinking

Mine is doing the same thing exactly, and it never blinked like this before even when we were using the wifi.  Now it is blinking rapidly and at the same rate, non-stop.  I mean it never stops at all--blinking for hours now, no let-up, constant and very fast.  Any ideas?

A phone call will get you nowhere with this, they probably wont have any idea what you are talking about. :0 always good to vent though!

Re: wifi light is flashing

On most Comcast gateways the wifi light is supposed to flash as long is it communicating to a wireless device.  The only way to turn it off is to disconnect all your devices from wifi or disable the wifi on the gateway.  It should be flashing under normal use.

slow wifi and flashing light

The download speed on my wired-in desktop is 135 mbps but for my new laptop it's 18 mbps. The uploads for both are about the same (23 or so.) The light on my router  wifi ALWAYS is flashing rapidly. Please help with info on what might be wrong or what to do to about both.  Thanks.
