IMPORTANT:  In case the indicator light does not flash like any of the behavior stated above, you need to observe your connection first.  If the connection works fine, the unusual activity of the indicator light only pertains to an active network connection.  However, if you start experiencing intermittent to no connection, you may need to powercycle your router for 1 to 2 minutes.  If this does not fix the problem, you might need to update the firmware and reconfigure the settings of the router.
