Hub Data Light Flashing Non Stop

Hi, my router has been acting strange all day today.

The data light that flashes when someone is downloading or uploading is flashing non-stop. I'm still able to get online. However, if i switch all devices off (exept for Tivo) the light is still flashing.

I've also noticed my IP address has changed and any website that uses IP to guess your location is saying i'm in Peterborough which i'm nowhere near.

I've tried switching the router off and back on again and that hasn't solved it.

Anything I should be worried about?

Light is still flashing. Don't know if it is a coincedence or not but Scottish Power are digging up the path just a few houses along. There's also the fact on demand and catch up TV isn't working.

Re: Hub Data Light Flashing Non Stop

Nothing to worry about. I posted a full description of what's happening a few days ago but you'll have to search the Community on the term "flashing" to find it.

 

EDIT:  I'm Mr Nice Guy today.  Here is the link to the explanation.  http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Networking-and-wireless/Constant-activity-on-WAN-side-of-Router/...

Re: Hub Data Light Flashing Non Stop

What about the strange change of IP address of a completely different area?

Re: Hub Data Light Flashing Non Stop

It means that the IP address block allocated to people in your VM locality is registered to VM at their Peterborough address. This will cause nuisance to you when over-clever search engines start giving you Peterborough crap!

Its Not Virgins task to update Geo Location Databases. They generally tend to update themselves over about 2 weeks.
