To be (hopefully) a little clearer: only the light on the switch, for the
port where the router is plugged into the switch, is flashing at a high
rate. The router WAN/LAN port lights behave normally based on idle, usage,
etc. There is no indication of high activity on the router itself, nor on
boxes connected to the switch.

I think I said this earlier but wanted to state it more clearly again now
since my last statement could be misunderstood.

Thank you.
