Flickering amber light on ethernet connection on R7000P

Hello, I decided to connect my hight end tv by ethernet rather than wifi. It works fine but the ethernet port light for the device on the router flickers on and off. Also the 2 white lights to the right of the power light are white but intermittentantly flickers as well.  I have read that there is nothing wrong, but we paid a lot of this 4k tv and I want to make sure that I am getting the best signal that I can. Thank you

Flickering is just minor random network chatter. As for amber light, your TV comes with a network chip at 100 Mbps (instead of 1 Gbps). In this case, the router uses Amber to report the speed. Nothing to worry about.

Flickering lights usually mean traffic. This is all explained in the manual,

 

Visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

Check the bits in the manual Table 1. LED descriptions and Troubleshoot With the LEDs.
