    Are the lights on the router supposed to be green, as two of the lights are
    orange. Do the colours mean anything?

  2. It came with no documentation?

    Zim zim ala bim, the spirits are about to speak. Oh, spirits, what can
    you tell me about the color of lights on an unidentified router? What?
    Huh? Oh, well, I can't repeat that here. Sorry, the spirits are, um,
    unwilling right now.

    It probably depends on if there is a pc connected to the port, or if the
    pc is on or not. I suppose you should read the docs.

    Could be - and sometimes it connection speed (10 vs 100).

    Now that I think about it, on my 3Com switches at work, some of the lights
    change from green to orange depending on what optional equipment is
    installed in the switch. So it would be quite machine specific.

    But the other replies are also quite correct: "What TYPE of freakin'
    router?" and "RTFM!"

    I would think the lights on yours show load balance as well.

    Nah - I'm still using rather old switches, no routers. But the lights on the
    switches do indicate data transfer activity as well as speed and probably
    other things if I took the time to monitor them.

    I worked for a local ISP for a while and that sounds like the 3COMs
    we had. I monitored traffic loading and ran the newserver. The
    newserver was an education itself. Came to work one day nad had an
    indignate email asking why I was allowing spammers to operate through
    my newserver. That only happened once! Damn spammers will find any
    hole you leave. I don't know that I stopped all of them but I didn't
    receive any more complaints like that.

    Good for you! Too bad so many others aren't that conscientious.
