    Do you have any Ethernet devices plugged in normally? Based on your picture, it doesn't seem that there are any. If you do have Ethernet plugged, then they'll be talking on the network regardless of if you have Wi-Fi enabled or not.

    It is also normal that your modem talks to your ISP regularly. Sometimes it's checking for updates or updating some settings which will cause network traffic which causes the lights to blink.

    Connected to your DSL line the modem constantly talks back and forth to your ISP host server.

    Uplink and downlink will blink with activity, Wi Fi only when connected.
