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.
