All network devices regularly check to ensure they still have a valid network connection. Even when sitting idle. This could be the cause of your light blinking.

As to why it's orange, I'm not sure. Which light is orange?

Things you could do:

- cycle the power on your unit. Unplug it, let it sit for 10 seconds then plug it back in. Sometimes all a SOHO Router needs is to be reset like this
- check for newer firmware for your device. If there is newer, apply it to the device
- if neither of the two above make a difference, you could reset the unit to factory defaults and reconfigure it.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
