Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router
I have just installed a Netgear WPN824 Router and one day later, the wireless status LED is blinking like a blink per second. I am wondering if this is normal. I have not done any changes to wireless setup since the setup. Thanks.
Same problem here - wireless light starts blinking and I get a network interruption. At that point, I have to walk across the house and downstairs to cycle the power on the router to get it working again. What a pain - and the manual doesn't even mention a blinking status for that light. I'm thinking about hooking the router up to a automated power switch (X12) so I can remotely cycle the power.

I'm having the same probs but, to answer your concern over the blue lights,her'es the deal.
your router has 7 antennas inside and each of the led's represents an antenna. as the router scans for something to connect to the led's will blink. it will eventually lock on to a signal from a wireless laptop or usb reciever and the 2 strongest signals will be used for transmitting/recieving data, shown by 2 solid led's.

I have the same problem with the wireless led indicator. After reading lots and lots of manuals and web pages, it seems that it may have been a fix for some kind of bug related to Wireless Router Radio. The led never used to flash, and I only noticed it flashing recently when I moved it, I also updated the firmware recently so I think it is probably supposed to flash now.

You would have to check the manual about the flickering, but your wireless card may send a signal every second to keep connection to the router. Also the router may be trying to connect with another peice of hardware, make sure that you are at least WEP secured, so as there can be no unauthorised connection to your router.
