Flashing LAN light

My LAN indicator light on the modem just started flashing. I have rebooted everything with no joy and wifi is working normally. Anybody know what this flashing is indicating?

The LAN light flashing indicates it is processing or downloading data, when the LAN mode is Enabled.

Do you have a device connected via Ethernet cable OR you just connect via Wi-Fi?

If don't have any devices connected via LAN (Ethernet cable) then it is just a matter of logging into the modems interface settings and disable the LAN Mode. Doing that means you can only then connect via Wi-Fi.

If you want to connect via Ethernet cable in the future, you would need to log back in and Enable the LAN setting.
