Hello, i have a problem with raspian. The banana is connect  to our Lan but has no permission to go to internet. So i think the continuous blinking lan-led comes from the banana trying to make updates?? How can i disable this?
Probably, banana pi want to update system time via internet.

First, You may see, what jobs are enebled in crone, and when they are running.
ls -R /etc/cron*

If You want to remove from scheduled list, just remove correct file from directory.
/time synchro is ntp file/

So i think the continuous blinking lan-led comes from the banana trying to make updates?? How can i disable this?

There are two leds on the LAN port.
The orange one on the left blinks when a LAN connection is established.
The green one on the right blinks on internet access.
Which of the two are you referring to?

The green and the blue leds are blinking!

    Hi sylwek2k,

ntp is active. But the second command returns "no such file or directory"
I have edited the ntp.conf and set it to a local ntp server.

The leds are still flashing

The green (the one right by the RJ45 connector) and the blue LEDs seem to to be complementary. The ethernet adapter does not know whether the packages passing by are for the LAN or go out through your router to the internet. There are always multi- and broadcast packages on the LAN which the adapter processes and hence the green LED blinks.

What is the frequency?

netstat -a might tell you more.

I would say around 5 times per second. (the sdcard led is flashing with 2 flashes per second with a short stop between)

netstat -a tells me a lot but what???

   SD card didn't flash any led.
Green blinking led, is "heart beat" - this leds show only, the Pi is running. When the Pi is busy, the break between blinking is lower. Just like in human body. If You are in "stres" your heart beat often
