Hum... I hope the router restores fine from a reset with all the wan
settings already predefined for your ISP. Resetting the router is not a
task you have to do every day, just avoid to do that unless is strictly
necessary :-)

Usually, the orange light of the Internet port means the router is trying
to get an IP for the ISP, after a reset this can be normal.

Yes, but after it achieves that, the led turns green and flashes, along with the LAN led to indicate net activity with this modem.

And don't worry for Gmail, this is another "beast" and does its own
"caching magic" in the background...

Yes, and there's going to be a lot more activity of that type coming up too.
I just hope I'm good enough at the time to evade it all.
