Lack of indicator light on AX6000

Other than a tiny pin green LED on the back bottom of the unit, you can't tell when it's on. All the advertising pictures, product pictures and system illustrations show a blue LED on the front bottom growing. Never seen a piece of equipment that you can tell is even on, just at a glance. Think we should at least have what you see in the ads. This is really a product design issue.

Re: Lack of indicator light on AX6000

The front LED just like Orbi AC and it's top ring LED are meant to be OFF when running in normal operation and the system isn't encountring any issues. https://kb.netgear.com/31030/What-do-the-LEDs-on-my-Orbi-router-and-satellite-mean

The front LED will blink or pulsate WHITE during normal start up. BLUE means it's come to ready and is working normally. This will turn OFF after a period of time. If PINK is seen then it means there is a problem, usually a loss of connection with the modem or if on the RBS, the RBS has lost it's connection with the RBR. 

 

The idea is set it and forget it. No need to keep checking on it to see if it's ON. 

 

The design is as intended.

Re: Lack of indicator light on AX6000

Does it light during the power up sequence or when the network gets disconnected?
