RAX200 - Ethernet Port - Red light

Hi,

 

I recently purchased a new router, the RAX200, and I'm extremely happy with its performance.

 

However, as of last night, the ethernet port keep on showing a red light instead of a steady white light. Is the router going bad?

 

Thanks.

Which ethernet port? 

1-5? 

Wan port? 

 

If its the 1-5 port, it indicates a 10/100mbps connection and not gigabit.

Hi Plemans,

 

Thank you for your response.

 

So the ETHERNET port I was referring to is the YELLOW RJ45 port that the router uses to connect to the ISP modem.

 

Thanks for all your help Smiley Happy

What ISP modem is it? (model)

Have you checked the cable? I've seen sketchy cables cause issues. 

Make sure its a cat 5e or better cable and decent quality

Hi Plemans,

 

The Spectrum Modem is a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem - 3.1 E31N2V1 Hitron.

 

Also, ethernet cable looks good, decent quality - Cat 7... Been using it for a few months, no problem.

 

Thanks Smiley Happy
