    Power LED – This lights up green when the device is powered ON.

    Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) LED –  When the DMZ feature is enabled, this LED will light up green.

   Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) LED –  When a wireless connection is established, this LED will steadily light up.  Once it flashes, it means that the router is sending or receiving data across the network.

   Ethernet LED (1-4) – These numbered LEDs will light up green if an Ethernet cable is connected to any of the Ethernet ports found at the back of the device.

   Internet LED – This will light up green if your router is connected to a Cable or DSL modem.  Once it flashes, it means that the router is sending or receiving data across the network.

  Logo LED – This is the router’s SecureEasySetup (SES) button.  Take note of the following LED activities:

• When the LED lights up orange, it means that the router is powered ON and the SES feature is disabled.

• When the LED flashes white, it means that the SES is being set up.

• Once the router has acquired the wireless network name (SSID) and password, the LED will steadily light up white.
