White light?

White light?

I woke up at 3am with my Orbi router light in white. Not the first time. This on a system that (I thought) has been stable. When I got up, all was ok.  No hint in the router log. Nothing in my modem log. So, what does it mean?

Re: White light?

It likely updated its firmware during that time and rebooted.

Orbi has woken me up before too. It's completely unacceptable.

 

Firmware updates should not be automatic, and should have a scheduled time if accepted.

Re: White light?

i went into a room where the satellite is too and sometimes i catch with white light.  Orbi apps show both satellites connected (costco pack) and everything is working normally.  Not sure if it just touches base (pun intended) every so often or what.   @DarrenM There should be a way to switch off the lights for the satellite in the options.

It's fine as long as the light is off. But, when it pops on, it wakes me up. Unless it's turning on the white light every night or several times a night and I only see it once or twice a week. Who knows. No records are kept in the log.
