Ask LH: Why Does My Modem Blink Even When I’m Not Online?

Dear Lifehacker, My modem and router keep flashing all night, even when I’m not doing anything on the internet. I know my power light is supposed to be on, but should the send/receive light be blinking even when all my computers are turned off? Am I using up data? Help!
