Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem
The USB light on the front of my Verizon Westell 6100 DSL modem recently began blinking 24 hours a day, roughly once a second. What might be causing that? It's never done it before in the 3-plus years that I've had the modem. The blinking began shortly after anti-virus protection caught and quarantined a virus, so I'm wondering if my computer is perhaps still infected. All scans however now come up clean. I've re-booted computer and modem several times, and unplugged USB cable and plugged it back in, but nothing stops the blinking. The other lights do not blink. Any ideas or suggestions?
Blinking light means that firmware on your DSL modem just got updated. The modem is pinging the Networ/Computer connected to it. If you open your Modem Page 192.168.1.1 you will see the difference, unless you never have done it before.

Blinking light has been no problem. Mine has been blinking for a year and everything still working perfectly.

Don't worry i just called verizon tech support about the exact same problem and was told by the technician that the blinking light represents the Ethernet connection is searching for a signal,which it does constantly.

I have a westell 6100 modem also- The light your are talking about always blinks- it blinks as long as the internet is working (it is sending and transmitting data)
