internet light should be solid or blinking?

i have a wireless g router with speedbooster, wrt54gs. when i check the bottom of the router. it doesnt have a ver number. so i guess its a ver 1. my firmware is up to date.
for some reason i am not getting a wan ip from my linksys cable modem. i thought that it was my cable connection. but internet and wan ip works fine when i connect my computer directly to the cable modem.
i power cycle and now hard reset my router, but its not getting a wan ip. my isp doesnt require my mac address. also my router was working earlier and its not new. its about a year old, i think.
i wanted to know if maybe my wan port is bad. i also switch a good cable and didnt make a difference, but the light on the router, where it says internet is flashing green. i checked the manuals and it does says it should be lite green, but it doesnt say flashing or solid green.
if someone else has a wrt54gs ver1 or maybe any ver. is your internet light blinking or solid green?
i also know that my wireless connection is fine, because i have the linksys wireless web camera, and it works fine over the network.
but again i am not getting the wan ip in the status section in the router setup. and my internet is fine.

it is normal for the internet light to be flashing for it indicates connectivity with your ISP.
I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

what do you mean virtual memory error?

actually i was still having the problem with my internet connection, but i had removed my wireless router from the network and left the cable modem connection to my computer. but i am still dropping the connection.

i called cox to come out and check it out and the tech says that its my cable modem. i have a linksys cable modem v1. they said that they are seening problems with ver 1 and advise to get something newer than ver1.
