    This is 100% normal, indicating network activity. Are you having issues connecting?

    I'd have to say, NO, it is not normal. We own two Acer netbooks.

    The Acer Aspire One 722 has a solid amber light when wifi is on and working. There is no flashing. (Don't confuse modem and router lights flashing with lights on a laptop).

    The Acer V5 model does not have a light showing if wifi is on or off. To see the status, I either look in the tray or press Fn + F3 and I get a popup to turn wifi and bluetooth on or off.

    I will try and find the manual for your model and do some reading. Nothing in the manual to indicate if it should be solid or flashing.

    I found one post from late 2009 on a forum
    from which I gather that a blinking wifi light on the model 4730z is normal.

    And yes plodr is correct, this is different from the link/pc activity light on a modem/router, which flashes in the same fashion as the wifi indicator on many laptop models, including several acers:)
