Thos light only telling you that there's a problem with the router , because the wireless light should be always ON and the power should not be blinking, first thing to do is to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds while the power is ON then unplug the power for 5 seconds.
If still the same problem the router can is bad already and better contact the manufacturer for further troublshooting and if its still under warranty have it replace with them.....

Hope that helps...........

Dont forget to rate the solution FIXYA thank you....

I could not loged in to the web based configuratin page of 5210

Turn off the router.
Press and hold small reset button (usually with a pin or pen) for 1 minute.
While still holding the reset button, turn the router back on and keep holding reset button for 30 seconds.
This will completely reset your router. The username/password will be set to default. (Usually Admin/Admin)

I need help setting up the SMC2870W to my gaming system...

You need to run the software provided with the unit. Connect the unit using the provided "crossover" network cable to a PC, this is wired slightly different to a standard network cable so make sure you have the right one - there are many sites that will explain crossover cables and give wiring diagrams.
Go through the setup program and choose the option to use the device as a bridge.
