Sorry this is my first post
I have an adsl wi-fi modem
For a while my modems ethernet light has been blinking
Whilst wireless is fine, I prefer to use Cable/Ethernet for my Xbox
Its now got to a point where the ethernet light blinks nearly all the time, when it used to only do it at random times
When it starts flashing the internet speed for ethernet gets reduced to dial-up or worse

Ive had a previous modem that does the same thing, so I dont think its the modem
And the problem started a few months after we moved into a new house.
I dont know if its Bigponds fault or if its something im doing
Could someone give any answers or at least resolutions?

Is there a program/virus/trojan on your system eating up bandwidth? Do you have any sort of firewall on your system?

If the ethernet light is blinking, something is using the internet/pulling bandwidth.
