My name is David.

It sounds like the router may have received a power surge. Power down the router and unplug it from the wall and leave it powered down for 10 minutes - that should be enough time to drain the router memory of all electrical charge. Then plug it back in and power it up. If the light on the top is no longer flashing then reboot the devices that connect to WiFi and see if they can access the Internet.

Please let me know the result.

Do you still need assistance?

Thank you for your help. It was nothing to do with the router, it was the microwave broadband receiver on the outside of the house which had gone wrong.

Glad it is resolved and thanks for letting me know.

Best regards,
