You will have to be a bit more clear on which lights on which model of modem is flashing rapidly.
Usually, as long as the internet works, the flashing lights are there to show that the modem is functioning properly and is currently sending packets, transmitting data, etc.

Belkin wireless nrouter doesn't connect to modem


Press the reset button in while the router is powered on. hold it in until all the lights stop flashing. It will then reset to factory defaults. the reason it's hidden is that it is a pain to keep setting up your network if accidentally pushed.

How to Reboot or Reset a Cable or DSL Modem Properly


  1. Turn off the computer and all other devices connected to the modem before attempting to perform a reboot or reset of the modem.
  2. Remove the power plug in the back of the modem. Check your modem for a battery pack. The battery must be removed in order to fully power down the modem.
  3. Keep the power off for at least one minute and then return the power plug to the back of the modem and wait for all the lights on the front of the modem to come back on and stop flashing.
  4. If you have a router, plug it back in and wait for the lights to come on first. Next, turn on your computer. After this, your connection should be back and you can reach the Internet.
To completely reset the device back to its factory settings, follow this step:
  1. Look at the back of the modem. There should be a tiny button or hole in the back of the modem that will be labeled reset. Press this button in for a minimum of 10 seconds using a small pin or a paperclip to reset the modem. This will reset the modem to factory defaults. You will need to reset options just as if it was a brand new modem being installed.

On the back of the router you will see what looks like a pin hole, turn the router on and use a paperclip to push into the hole(it's a reset button) and keep it pushed in till the router cycles off then on again, it resets the router to default. Hope this helps.

When power switch is turned on the Power light is rapidly flashing & the 4 Ethernet lights are flashing. The box is Actiontec GT704wg


I do not have a solution to the problem. However, I am having the same problem. This morning the Actiontec GT704WG power and ethernet lights were rapidly flashing. The modem was non-functional. I could not even connect to the modem through the browser to see if I could find a problem.

The problem lasted a couple of hours. Then all of a sudden the modem started working again. I won't be able to tell if the problem recurs until I restart the modem. And if the problem does occur again, I won't be able to connect to the internet.

Dishwasher does not start


I have the same problem. I've tried everything;even took apart the control panel and checked for corosion. I ended up changing the control board-$130 down the drain- The only other thing I can figure is the button panel has some sort of short- also ~$130-. good luck. Now I use the sink (wife's not happy) Tech sheet is behind kick plate.
