Internet LED on RAX38 is solid red but WiFi unaffected

I just noticed the status light on my RAX38v2 is solid red but my (wired) internet connection is good, as are both wifi channels. Should I ignore the red light?

Re: Internet LED on RAX38 is solid red but WiFi unaffected

Which led is red? There's quite a few of them on there.  

What modem/gateway is it connected to.

It's the one designated as "Internet." The second one down from the top.

The modem is a Netgear Nighthawk CM2000.

BTW I just rebooted the router and now all lights are white, so maybe the issue has become moot.

If it comes back, let us know. You might also log into the modem and pull its cable connections page and event logs. Maybe something dropped on the internet side and thats why the internet let showed amber.
