This chapter provides explanations for LED actions on a RUT240 router.

The connection status LEDs are located on the left side of the front panel, between the power connector and the signal strength indication LEDs:
The LED displays the router’s current connection state and network type among a few other things:
The signal strength LEDs are located in the center 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:
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.
After the router gets powered up, all signal strength LEDs will turn ON and stay ON for about 40 seconds or until the router’s modem registers on a network – after this, the LEDs will start displaying the router’s current signal strength.
