Westell 6100G Data light constant activity

Message 1 of 2

I recived a new modem to replace my old 6100,my old one had 5 lights This new one (6100g) has 3 lights a internet ,data, and dsl light.Now I'm aware that when a light is flashing it means data is flowing through and or it's connecting.So why is it that the data light blinks non stop when the dsl and internet lights remain solid.I even detatched the ethernet cord and the data light was still blinking non stop is this normal? I can't imagine why it would be this active even when not in use.I can conncet to th internet but it seems alot slower than with my old modem.Also Im using a new pc with vista so im not sure if that has anyting to do with it.

Any thoughts?

Since you are on Vista, see as need be

#3 Is the IP Address on your computer the same or different from the IP Address as shown at ?
