Stop WAN/LAN1 light from blinking?

Recommended Posts

The LAN1 light on my router blinks orange when I am using the internet and blinks really fast when downloading/using discord or skype calls, and blinks slowly when reading webpages etc. I was wondering if there is a way to disable this/make the light stay non-blinking.

 

Thanks

1. Bit of black tape over the case above the LED

2. Open it up and cut the trace for the LED or put tape over the LED internally

3. Install an open OS on the router, OpenWRT/LEDE, DD-WRT, TOMATO etc etc. Some/most allow control of LED's.

4. Use other network.

Network activity.  Little bit of black paint will fix it.  You can't turn off the lights. I'm also pretty sure an open os won't allow that either.  It's usually not software that lights up the lights.

I guess it depends if it's the RJ45 port LED's on the back/rear or the router LED's usually on front/top https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/base-system/led_configuration
