WPS blue light dome blinks on WNDR3400

I've had this router for a week now, it works great and is a lot faster then my previous router. 2 days ago I noticed the big blue WPS light will randomly start blinking on and off for awhile.

There does not seem to be any issues with the router but I'm wondering why it is blinking on and off.

Anyway to just have this light be turned off? It is pretty bright and kind of annoying.

Yes I've pressed the button and it still does the flashing thing, pressing the button doesn't seem to effect it at all and does not turn off the light

It this a V1 or V2 router? Check the model number to see if it says WNDR3400V2. If not, it's a V1.

Well, I'd ask you to re-flash the firmware but I can't find that firmware on the Netgear site. But if it's not causing any issues, ignore it.

I've got a new WNDR3400 (not V2) just flashed to V1.0.0.50_20.0.59. I also can't turn off the antenna lights. I tried following the instructions in the manual (p. 6 of WNDR3400_SM_23MAR2010.pdf). If I press and immediately release the dome button (with the blue antenna lights), this starts the WPS function (blue lights start blinking for 2 minutes). (I'm not holding the dome button down for 5 seconds.)

:confused:

After flashing the firmware did you hard reset the router for 30 seconds and release the button. Wait 30 seconds and power cycle. Now go back and reconfigure it from scratch and check.
