If you're referring to the WiFi light (the bottom light), the scenario is as follows...
If you have the SSID Enable fields unchecked for one or more radios the light will remain on, but if you've unchecked one or both of the Frequency Band boxes in the Advanced settings the light will be off. Not only do I have the SSID Enable for each of the four radios unchecked, I have both Frequency Band boxes unchecked, so my WiFi light is off.
So, if you uncheck SSID Enable for one or more of the following (2.4, 2.4 Guest, 5 and 5 Guest), but do not uncheck one or both of the Frequency Band boxes, the light will remain on...
But, if you uncheck one or both of the Frequency Band boxes, regradless of whether any or all of the SSID Enable boxes are checked or not, the light will go off.
I hope this makes sense. If you've got one or both Frequency Band boxes unchecked, the WiFi light being off is normal. Basically, the WiFi light is tied to the Frequency Band boxes.
Does unchecking both frequemcy boxes by itself totally disable the wifi? If so I.m switching to that method, that way I'd have a visual way to know the on/off state of the wifi, and it would be less boxes to check to turn it back on when I needed it.
It might even save electricity! )>
Thanks for the info!
Does unchecking both frequemcy boxes by itself totally disable the wifi?
I believe it does. I know that if I only uncheck the Frequency Band boxes, and not the SSID Enable or Broadcast boxes, I can no longer see the HughesNet WiFi as an available connection option in my devices. And, if I have a device currently connected via WiFi and, using a separate device that is connected via LAN cable, I uncheck the corresponding Frequency Band box and click Save Settings, I lose the WiFi connection.
We got a little bit off topic there. I still have no internet access. @Hardy, is there anything else you can do to help me? Please see above where I outlined the additional issues I had before this.
At this point, the only I can think of it being is a port issue. I have set up for a replacement modem to be shipped to you, in hopes it might resolve the issue. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
You're quite welcome.
I hope that the modem Hardy is having sent resolves the issue.
