When the receive light blinks it means its either receiving or attempting to receive a signal. If its not connected with the ethernet cord then its trying to receive and find the signal from your ISP (internet service provider).

Message waiting light is flashing but no messages are recorded. I have turned this off at Options but message waiting display keeps coming back..what do I do.


There is a call back feature in the system. Sometimes when you receive an internal call from another extension and you are on another call the caller will hit callback. You actually have to return the call to that extension to stop the light from flashing.

I know this was posted a long time ago but for what it's worth. The error codes are probably turned off. I can tell you how to turn on the error codes if this is still a problem. please let me know.

My nintendo wii power light is yellow


The wii power light is yellow because you have wiiconnect24 turned on in the wii system options. Wiiconnect24 constantly keeps your wii connected to the internet by staying in a low power mode, if you receive any messages while int his mode the disk opening will flash blue. If you don't want this option just go into the wii systems settings and turn it off. If you wish to have it but want to turn it fully off just hold the power button on the main console until the power light turns red.

My modem keeps losing internet connection


Update your drivers and then do a speed test. Most isp send updates to the subscribers when they update, yours may not. Don't forget to check all of your connections before wasting time calling your isp. I trust this test the most. Rember you don't always get what you pay for.
