Hi Tessa,  The modem lights blink is an indicator it is working and linked between the satellite and your modem.

However if all 4 lights are flashing in unison, it's an indication of a modem/tria fault (error) - note the status light, the top one, only flashes when a fault is detected and normally it's either on or off.

Sometimes it can be cleared by powering off the modem, waiting and powering it back on; if not corrected you may need to contact customer support.
