firmware-ng led codebook

Firmware-ng uses the various leds OpenMesh devices come with to inform about what the device is currently doing. This page contains an overview about the different color states and their meanings.

  • Ethernet leds will turn on (blue/solid) as soon as a cable is plugged and blink when traffic going through this interface.
  • On gateways the multi-color led will show:
    • no color until dhcp address received
    • red solid if internet check fails but DHCP was received
    • green blink if internet works
  • On repeaters the multi-color led will show:
    • no color until speed test (dashboard checkin) has been run
    • red solid if speed to the gateway is below 1Mbps
