HOW MANY LED LIGHTS SHOULD BE ON FOR MY NIGHTHAWK X4AC3200

HOW MANY LED LIGHTS SHOULD BE ON FOR MY NIGHTHAWK X4AC3200 with Cox Cable Gigablast service?  Right now, I have 6 LED lights on the device.  Cox Cable says I should have:

 1000 Mbps download |  35 Mpbs upload

 

That being said, my last speed test was 98.2 mbps with an upload of 17.9 mbps.  The ping is 9ms with a jitter of 10 ms.

Am I getting what I paid for with the device and cable service?  It doesn't seem so.  Advice appreciated!

   Which do you think is more important, the number, or what they mean?

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for the
LED descriptions.

   Which was performed how, exactly?

The speed test was done through Cox Cable.

Re: HOW MANY LED LIGHTS SHOULD BE ON FOR MY NIGHTHAWK X4AC3200

So, I read the information about LED indications. Can you tell me what it means when it says, 

"Solid white. Two or more downstream channels are locked"

My downstream and upstream channels are solid light indicating two or more channels are locked.  How do I get them unlocked or do I even need to do that?

X4AC3200 means not much. X4 and AC3200 are wifi speed indicators.

 

Is it the C7800 that you own?

 

If you need more help, you might get better and quicker replies, and find other answers, over in the appropriate section for your device:

It's what the light represents...and I've read up on it after finding the manual online.  Thanks.
