Is my router being used by someone else in the street when I see the wireless light flashing randomly after I have turned my laptop off?
Hi Rachie80 and welcome
Does it flash when your laptop is connected?
If the router in use is a BT Home Hub and the wireless light is flashing:
Version 1.0 - Wireless in use
Version 1.5 - Registering Wireless
Version 2.0 - Wireless registration mode
I'd have to say that if it's a V1.5 or V2.0 then the hub could be failing...
...I could be wrong though
Thanks for replying. My laptop was shut down last night when I noticed the wireless light flashing so automaticcaly I am thinking someone else was connected however I am security enabled so cant figure it out.
Its a new hub as I have just switched from residential to a business tariff if that is any help.

You will need to be connected to your home BT Broadband connection to view it, or any links to it that I post on this forum.
Mmm. None of my BTHHv2.0s have a flashing wireless light
(except on a reboot - which is normal)
I still think it's got a problem...
I don't know about the Hub 2.0s, but the 1.5 hub has the option of setting the wireless light to always on or flashing when there's traffic.
On the HH2, you can set the BB, Wireless and Phone lights to flash.
You can't set just the wireless.
edit. Ayup, Geoff wasn't there a moment ago!
