What Do The SpeedStream 4200 LED’s Indicate

The LED indicators on the front of the SpeedStream 4200 give you a visual indication of the health and activity on the router. When the SS4200 is configured and working correctly, all LED indicator lights, at some point, will turn a solid green. Some will stay solid green, other will flash green.

The following table shows the possible states indicated by the LEDs.

LED Power Ethernet DSL USB Activity
Off No power to router No power to router

Wrong Ethernet cable used (cross- over instead of straight-through)

Note: There are some exceptions to the rules above depending on the configuration and the version of the Firmware loaded… If the SpeedStream 4200 has been configured in Bridge Mode, the Activity light may not flash.
