|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.
