Re: My Model R6120

Are you having any issues with your internet or is it just the light is red?

Re: My Model R6120

Red or Amber on some models means a device is connected at either 10 or 100 Mbps. The router has auto-sensing ports and during negotiation it can detect the capability of the connected device. If the device supports 1 Gbps, it will display white or green. All others below 1 Gbps are red/amber

Routing: NETGEAR RAX43 - Firmware: V1.0.11.112 (1 Gbps down, 50 Mbps up)
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)

Re: My Model R6120

Should I be concern about the RED light staying on?

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for the LED
descriptions.  What does Netgear call your "third light"?  "RED" or
amber?  What's connected to the R6120?

   Not if the router LAN ports are limited to 10Mb/s or 100Mb/s, as the
"Fast Ethernet" ports on an R6120 are.
