Default LED Light Sometimes Powers Off - Why?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I was sitting at my desk yesterday and happened to look over at my 8700g which was laying a few inches away....I noticed that the LED light wasn't blinking fact it had stopped blinking all together. I picked it up and everything looked fine - was still on EDGE and had a strong signal.

It bothered me so I turned the wireless off and then back on and the green light came on again once connected.

Anyone else have this happen. It's happened once before (my BB is a month old) and I remedied it the same way.

Seems strange and there's a problem.

My 8700g has done the same thing a few times. I'm not sure why either.

I see this as well on my 8703e. However after waiting approx. 10 minutes, it starts blinking again. Strange.
