AX4 - RAX35 How to enable led "blinking"

I tried setting the LED lights on my router to "enable blinking" to show traffic, but there is no such setting on this new router?

There are only two options - turn off all leds or disable blinking. Only one or the other can be selected.

 

Is this a firmware bug?

 

Thanks

Hello mjz, 

 

Are any of the LED lights able to display any sort of blinking? Please refer to page 10 of the user manual for the LED descriptions.

Hi Christian,

 

No LED's are blinking even though I am sending traffice through the router.

LED's are 'lit' up showing that my wireless radio's (2.4 & 5.0 ghz) are on as well as power and Internet connection. All green.

 

Router is working, just no blinking is possible apparently. The web interface does not have a "enable blinking" option. I can only 'disable' blinking or turn off all LED's except power.

 

Strange ...

I replied to your message.

 

Interesting that there is no way to enable LED blinking.

No Option for RAX35 above ..... Interesing that the only options are disable blinking lights and disable lights.  Those should be check boxes and not bulleyes.  I wanted to see that there is traffic at a glance, but no option to enable the LED blinking feature.

I had assumed a future firmware update would correct the design error. My other Netgear wi-fi routers have this option working where I can see at a glance network activity when I want to have it activated.

 

Negear: Please fix this problem on the RAX35 ! Thanks
