what country are you in, and how does the dsl get to you? im in uk so might be off as using some uk terminology.
what it sounds like is your router is simply losing sync with the exchange or host. when the light goes solid it usualy means that sync has been
achieved , when it flashes it means its not in sync and no data can go through, the blinking means its trying to achieve sync but cant.. it knows its
their but is being stopped... as opposed to absolutely no dsl/sync light on at all, as that basicly means that theirs no dsl on that line.
when you say its worse when it rains, it sounds like wherever your line is attached water is getting in and messing things up, this happens more than
you would think, i work for an isp and come accross this every so often. what its normaly caused by is the connections not being properly sealed and
rain can get in.
with every dsl issue though, always swap filters, remove everything from all other sockets except your master socket,also test a different
normaly though, if its something like rain effecting it, its probably been spotted and this is why its taking so long, as someone will have to
physicaly fix it, unlike most other dsl issues which can be fixed remotely.
