[CenturyTel] ZyXel 5001Z WPS button

Hello,
I have a ZyXel 5001Z modem. I do not have a separate router connected. The WPS button on the modem occasionally flashes red. I would assume this means someone is trying to access my network. Is this correct?

Don't know, but WPS has been proven to be a security issue. See if it an be turned off in settings.

Yes, it does mean someone's trying to connect.

My Q2000 does this in my condo and it drives me crazy, and there is no way to turn it off either in my firmware. I called CL to see if i can get swapped to a C2000T due to that and a host of other issues i'm having with my router.

Oh dear. Not what I was hoping to hear...but also not unexpected. I will look into this further. Thanks.
