Ziply Fiber is a well-known brand offering phone services, internet, and local fiber optic services to users who need a well-rounded plan for their home or office. There are two as well as five-gig fiber internet plans that promise top-notch download and upload speeds.
The company also has a router available that’s designed to offer wireless speed of over 1.25Gbps while wired internet speed is around 2.5Gbps. This is a Wi-Fi 6 router that helps achieve a better network connection. However, to keep an eye on the router’s functions, we are sharing what the lights mean!
Ziply Fiber Router Lights
The Wi-Fi 6 router promises a reliable internet connection and can be used to establish wired as well as wireless connections without any slowdowns. Also, like other routers, the Ziply Fiber router is designed with two lights, and in the section below, we are sharing what they signify and what different colors mean;
- Power Light
The first light on the router is the power light. When the router is connected to the power socket, the power icon will become green. However, if the power icon remains off, it means that the router is not receiving. In case the power icon is not green even after connecting the power cord, try these steps;
- First of all, we recommend that you disconnect the power cord and reconnect it to the power socket tightly (the loose power cord can result in a spotty power connection)
- Check the wall socket and make sure it’s operational. In particular, you can use a voltmeter to see if it provides any reading. If there is no reading, you have to hire an electrician and get the wall socket repaired. Meanwhile, you can use some other socket to power the router
- Thirdly, you have to check the power cord that’s connecting the router to the power source and is providing the current flow. So, if the power cord is damaged, the current flow will be restricted, which prevents the router from turning on. The solution is to replace the damaged power cord
- Internet Light
The second light on the router shares information about the internet connection. Once the internet connectivity has been established, the internet light will become solid blue. It might take a few minutes for the blue light to become solid. However, if it doesn’t, you can try the following troubleshooting steps;
- First of all, check the coaxial cable connections and make sure the coaxial cable is tightly connected to the optical network unit as well as the router. In addition, the coaxial cable must be tightly connected to the port and shouldn’t be damaged
- Secondly, you have to ensure that the white Ethernet wire is connected to the ONT broadband port (the red port on your router). In addition, the Ethernet wire is securely connected to the port
- Last but not least, make sure you are using the correct password to connect to the wireless network because an incorrect password can adversely impact the connection
So, are you ready to establish a wireless connection?
