Purple solid ring on router but router performs perfectly...

So my Orbi has been working flawlessly since the latest firmware but i just noticed that the ring on the router is solid purple.  The router is in AP mode and i have had zero drop issues and its been pumping full bandwidth to my devices.  Any idea how i get that ring to turnoff?

What version of FW is currently loaded? 

Any recent updates? 

 

How is the AP mode orbi connected to the main host router? WAN or LAN port in back? 

What is the Mfr and model# of the main host router?

FW:  2.1.3.4

Have it sorted the WAN cable was pluged in to the switch, not the network port. Just moved the cable on the Orbi and rebooted and light out.
