Windows 7: CenturyLInk Modem: blinking WPS button

CenturyLInk Modem: blinking WPS button

I get this every once and a while. Is it something I should concern myself with? I did my due diligence but found nothing useful. CenturyLink's web site is useless on this topic. Some say to disable it because it is a security flaw.

Any suggestiongs welcomed.

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

well usually the wps button is flashing if it is pressed to configure devices to access the modem in a easier setup manner. If it is constantly flashing; first i would try resetting the modem by unplugging the modem for about a minute or so then plug it back in and let it reboot fully. If it still flashes after that it may mean something is up and i would contact their tech support to see what they say about it. Im not a 100% expert when it come to dsl modems because ive always used cable instead; so I would at least give the rebooting the modem a shot and see what happens.
