from the manual I posted- page 9
Quote:
Check that the lights on the cable modem front cycle through this sequence:
• Power flashes during the self-test and changes to solid green when the self-test
is successfully complete.
• Receive flashes while scanning for the receive (downstream) channel and
changes to solid green when it is connected.
• Send flashes while scanning for the send (upstream) channel and changes to
solid green when it is connected.
• Online flashes while the cable modem downloads configuration data and
changes to solid green when the download is complete.
has the router been always connected and working fine until the new laptop added ?

Just kidding it worked for a minute and it stopped again..

I contacted my ISP and talked to a person and he told me to reset my modem and router which i did but had no effect. He adviced me to get a technician in so i might just have to do that.

My experience with that modem (and an earlier model) is that the Receive LED blinking means an ISP problem; the Receive LED solid and the Send blinking means a problem (rust or corrosion) with one of my coax connections between the company's cable and the modem. I've never had the Receive and Send LEDs both blinking.
