Sounds like a problem with your cable connection. Check your coaxial cable, and the splitter from where the cable enters your home. The tech will use a signal meter to measure the quality of your cable, and then replace the wiring if necessary.
If you are able to access the internet this is a normal operating status. These lights are just letting you know there is activity present with the modem and the modem is sending and receiving information with your provider.
Well if it works perfect and has no problems then no you don't need a new modem. if it is not doing so well and is messing up a lot then yes i would look into one, Other then that sounds normal for a router or ethernet to be active or none active.
You do got random programs on your pc that do connect to internet while not around or not even using or browsen the net.
change the dns to 184.108.40.206
and checked if u getting the default gateway and if u r able to open the routers page in the ie.
if this does not resolve the issue for further assistance how did this happen
whos ur isp , do u have ur isp's settings as every isp have their unique settings which must be entered.
Or you didn't pay your subscription on time and the ISP disabled your cable modem to send user traffic over the cable network. When both Send and Receive lights are blinking that is a visual aid that the modem is working fine, but the ISP disabled its access to the network (unpaid bill, legal issues, etc.)
Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future... The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations. 1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..
So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks.... Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
