Understanding the light behavior of your Linksys Mesh WiFi system

Your Linksys Mesh WiFi system is composed of multiple units called nodes or routers. Each node or router has one main light that gives you information about its operation. 

The power light on the Linksys Intelligent Mesh WiFi routers (MR series)
is located on the front.
