Checking the Switch LED Status Indicators

Linksys switches have Light Emitting Diode (LED) indicators either on the front or at the back panel of the device.  These lights show the status for each component or function it is assigned to.  Read on to learn more about the LED status indicator on your specific device.

For EZXS16W, EZXS88W and EZXS55W:
 

 


Power LED – If lit, this indicates that the switch is powered ON.

Link/Act LED(s) – If lit, this LED indicates that there is activity on the specific ports it represents.

100 LED(s) – This LED indicates the speed of the connection over the Ethernet port.  When all the LEDs light up simultaneously, the current speed is 100 Mbps; if not, then the speed is 10 Mbps.

Full/Col LED(s) – This LED indicates if the Ethernet port is in Full-Duplex or Half-Duplex mode.  When the LED lights up, the current mode is Full-Duplex while if not, the mode is currently Half-Duplex.

For EG008W and EG005W:
 

 


Power LED – If lit, this indicates that the switch is powered ON.

Ethernet LEDs – The Ethernet LED lights up when the switch has a device connected to it using one of the Ethernet ports.

For the SE1500:
 

 


Power LED – If lit, this indicates that the switch is powered ON.

NOTE:  This device has a LED button.  Ensure that the LED button is switched ON.

For the SE2500 and SE2800:
 

 


NOTE:  The device used for this example is an SE2500 switch.

Power LED – If lit, this indicates that the switch is powered ON.

Port LED status indicators: 

•   Yellow LED – The Yellow LED lights up and flashes to indicate network activity over that port.

•   Green LED – The Green LED lights up when the local network port is connected to a 1000 Gigabit port (SE2500 and SE2800 only); if not, the speed is 10/100 Mbps.

NOTE:  This device has an LED button.  Ensure that the LED button is switched ON.


IMPORTANT:  If the LED blinks constantly, try resetting the router.  If the problem still exists, you may need to replace your switch with a new one.
