Wireless-G Broadband Router
The Front Panel
The Router’s SecureEasySetup button (the Cisco logo) and LEDs are located on the front panel.
(Cisco logo) Orange/White. The Cisco logo is the Router’s SecureEasySetup button. It lights up and will stay
orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that the Router is not using
the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the Router is using the
SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup mode, the Cisco logo will
turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated the SSID and WPA-PSK (also
called WPA-Personal) key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA-PSK key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds. The
Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.
Power Green. The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered on. When the
Router goes through its self-diagnostic mode during every boot-up, this LED will flash. When
the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ Green. The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will remain lit
as long as DMZ is enabled.
WLAN Green. The WLAN LED lights up whenever there is a successful wireless connection. If the LED
is flashing, the Router is actively sending or receiving data over the network.
1, 2, 3, 4 Green. These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router’s back
panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected
to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.
Internet Green. The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the Internet port.
