Flashing Internet Light

Should my internet light be flashing on my router or should it be a solid green light I just wondered about this because is this the reason why my connection drops and reconnects from time to time.

Some router lights flash to indicate data flow.  Other routers have lights that do not flash because people worry about a flashing light.

Hi valart,
Your connection is disconnecting every 29 minutes;

Are you using one of our supplied routers?

Re: Flashing Internet Light

That's suggestive of "connect on demand" with a time-out and trigger (either router or connected PC based) at roughly equal intervals.
