Gentlemen/Ladies,

I have currently changed ISPs and am unsure what, if any, problems exists.

I have a DIR-655 router and am noticing that the network activity LED is constantly blinking. We've moved to a new location and thus, were required to change ISP providers.

With the old ISP I noticed what seemed to be normal network traffic behavior; only indicating activity when the computers where actually accessing the internet. With the new ISP the activity light is constantly blinking. Looking at the connections on my side of the router doesn't show anything going out. In other words, the activity seems to be on the Internet side of things.

I'm just wondering if this is normal behavior from an ISP or should I be calling them and informing them of some issues they may have.


Thanks for any help

Steve

that is normal. Your ISP talks to their modems all the time.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
