- Checking the Linksys Gateway’s LEDs
The Linksys Gateway’s front panel indicates the status of the connection. The lights at the front panel are:
Internet - Cable
Internet - Activity
Ethernet (1, 2, 3, or 4)
To check the ADSL gateway’s LEDs, follow these steps:
Make sure that the Power LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Power LED is blinking, you need to reset the gateway’s firmware. For instructions, click here.
Make sure that the Internet - Cable LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet – Cable LED is blinking, it means that the Cable gateway is going through its startup and registration process.
Make sure that the Internet - Activity LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet – Activity LED is blinking, it means that data is being sent and received through the Cable gateway interface.
Make sure that the numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4) is lit.
NOTE: If the numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4) is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered ON. You can also try connecting the computer to the gateway using another working Ethernet cable.
Make sure that the USB LED is lit when a computer is connected to the USB port of the Cable gateway and the drivers are installed.
NOTE: If the USB LED is blinking, it means that the cable is connected but the drivers are not installed properly. If you’re using a wireless gateway, make sure that the Wireless LED is lit.
