RBK752 Satellite LED behavior

The LED light on my satellite turns on at random times. I thought this was just an initial synching thing. Anyone know if this is normal or what it means?

What color(s)?

What is the color sequence and flashing pattern?

Can also be a reboot after a momentary power glitch. These satellites are very power sensitive. Mine haven't rebooted randomly since connecting them to UPSs.

Thanks for your reply.

The LED shines blue for a few minutes and then turns off

It could be the backhaul connection from the satellite/router going from fair/good/unable to connect.

Re: RBK752 Satellite LED behavior

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?

 

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.
