Portal’s status LED will initially be RED until it passed an internal power-on self-test and it connects to the internet. It will then light up BLUE to indicate that it is able to connect to the internet. If Portal needs to update its firmware, the status LED will blink BLUE. Otherwise, it should become a steady GREEN, indicating Portal is connected to the internet and ready to be configured.
In case your Portal LED remains RED you may be required to enter your Internet Service Providers username and password; also known as PPPoE. If so, please follow this guide to configure the settings in your Portal using the web interface.
