The green lights on my modem (2Wire Model 3800HGV-B) on both the Ethernet and Home PNA areas are not a solid green but continually are in in a "blinking" mode. I would like to know if this is normal or is it telling me something I should know. I have had this modem for 2-3 years.

It's normal, you just may not have noticed it before. Green is good, means everything is working/synched. Red or none is what you worry about. Be aware that the Wireless light can even go out, even though it's still *working*, it's just not finding a current device using the signal (all your Wireless devices could be turned off).

The ethernet light blinks when there's traffic going in or out, including TV traffic. If it blinks all the time it might mean something you aren't aware of is talking to the net -- possibly you have an STB turned on. Don't know about the PNA light, but I'd guess it means one or more STBs are on.

The HPNA light can go out if the coax loses sync. I had that happen several times in the early days--my RG wasn't trained properly at install (set up as Coax, but RJ-11). And if you are using all Ethernet, I would think the HPNA light would not be lit.

Using all ethernet here and indeed, the HPNA light is not lit.
