The "Internet" light is flashing continuously all of a sudden (usually just on solid). I'm not using the phone and have no computers plugged into the device!

The power and phone lights are solid, not blinking. What's up? I haven't seen this happen before.

My RTP300 is plugged into my router, with no computers plugged in, and no phones in use. Unplugging the phones from the FTP300 has no affect. Is this some kind of update? Its been going on over 30 minutes...

That light on my RTP-300 has always blinked like crazy with all computers turned off, just as my cable modem is always blinking even when nothing is connected to it.

Hackers trying to ping my IP address? I don't know.

As long as you do not disable the firewall in the RTP-300, it will appear to the world that no system exists at your IP address.

I am not concerned about the blinking as much as the really bright blue lights on the RTP-300. I live about a mile from a general aviation airport

I am concerned that a pilot unfamiliar with my area will try to land on my RTP-300, mistaking it for runway lights. Eek

The blue lights are kinda bright, yes. Just keep the curtains closed to avoid misdirecting aircraft.

Well the intense hammering by Vonage servers has finally stopped after almost an hour.

My router logs showed a Vonage IP address hitting my RTP300 very intensly for some unknown reason for quite some time after I quit using the telephone. The destination port was 51940. Very odd, while no phones in use and no computers attached to the RTP300...

I use the RTP300 first and have been unable to get the logs working.

From the RTP300 help for the Log tab:

Log
the Log screen provides information on all the log activities. A file can also be generated to keep a permanent record of the activities by using logviewer software,which is available on the setup CD or can be downloaded from the Linksys website at www.linksys.com


No CD came with my RTP300
A search of www.linksys.com reveals no logviewer software.
No buttons on the router software to look at the temporary logs as is available on the WRT54G:

Blue lights mean a taxiway, not a runway. I wouldn't worry about anyone landing on your RTP-300, because first that would be one really, really good short field landing, and second no pilot would land on blue except in an emergency. However, a pilot might be driving by after his flight and drive into your house misaking the blue lights for taxiway edge lights. Wink

The WRTP54G also has amazingly bright blue lights. When I turn off my office lights at night and go outside, the eerie flickering blue glow is quite astonishingly bright. And yes, my Internet light blinks constantly. So do the ones on my modem. I think my ISP doesn't filter out "local" traffic. I haven't surfed for any open shares on my Cable connection, but I'd be willing to bet there are some there. (hence why I run hardware AND software firewalls).

My RTP300 is connected behind my main router, and has no devices plugged into its lan ports, so the traffic light does not blink unlesss I'm on the phone. The above-mentioned issue was an exception to that.

The logging I mentioned was done on my main router, not the RTP300. I use M0n0wall on an old PC for my main router. Previous to that I used IPCop on an old PC. Both work great. Highly recommended.

I took one of those silvery-grey anti-static bags that they ship PC cards in and cut 4 strips from it to tape over the lights. Those lights are just about right now. Wink

I figure it's just a really sensitive light. My rtp300 does the steady blink too in exact situations the RT31P2 would be steady.

Does anyone else's RTP300 make a slight hiss as if a fan is on in it?
