 4G LED turned ON  Connected 4G with data session
 2G LED blinking rapidly  Connected 2G with data session and data is being transferred
 3G LED blinking rapidly  Connected 3G with data session and data is being transferred
 4G LED blinking rapidly  Connected 4G with data session and data is being transferred

Signal strength LEDs

The signal strength LEDs are located on the right corner of the front panel, to the right of the connection status LEDs:



Each lit up LED represents a different value of the router's current signal strength in RSSI:

 NO. OF LIT UP LEDs  SIGNAL STRENGTH VALUE
 0  ≤ -111 dBm
 1  -110 dBm to -97 dBm
 2  -96 dBm to -82 dBm
 3  -81 dBm to -67 dBm
 4  -66 dBm to -52 dBm
 5  ≥ -51 dBm

The signal strength LEDs can also be used as a time indicator for holding the reset button. When you press and hold the reset button, you have to hold it pressed for 5 seconds (by default) to initiate a factory reset. Each second, a new signal strength LED lights up. When all 5 LEDs are lit up, it represents that 5 seconds have passed since you pressed down on the reset button and that you can release it.

After releasing the button, all 5 LEDs will start blinking every 1 second. This signifies that the router has begun the factory reset.
