Zoom cable modems have secured a good name in the industry as they have high-end features and optimal internet connectivity solutions. However, many people are confused about different Zoom cable modem 3.0 lights as they don’t know the function of these lights, and we are sharing more information in the article below!
Zoom Cable Modem 3.0 Lights Meanings
1. Power Light
The power light is made to show a green color. The green light will switch on when the modem is switched and is working. On the other hand, if the power light is switched off, it simply means that the power is off, which means it is disconnected from the power plug. On the other hand, if the power light is turned off, even if the power plug is connected to the power source, there are chances of a damaged cable or power outage.
2. DS Light
The DS light is either blue or green, and both these colors mean something different. To make it easier to understand, we are sharing the categorical information below;
- Green DS Light – if this light is flashing green color, it means that it’s looking for the primary downstream channel. However, the if the flashing stops, it means that the modem is now connected to the downstream channel
- Blue DS Light – if the light is flashing blue color, it means that the modem is negotiating the bonded downstream channel, but when the light is solid blue, it means that the downstream channel is now bonded
3. US Light
The US light is added to share the status of the upstream channel. Just like the DS light, it can be blue or green, depending on the internet connectivity status with the upstream channel. So, let’s see what the light color means, such as;
- Blue – when the blue light is flashing, it means that the modem is working on negotiating the bonded upstream channel, while solid blue light means a bonded US channel
- Green – when the green US light is switched off, it means that the US channel is still inactive and has to be enabled. On the other hand, the solid green light means a connected upstream channel, and flashing blue lights means that the modem is trying to look for the upstream channels
Online is another light on the Zoom 3.0 cable modem, and it tends to be green in color. As the name suggests, it shares the online connectivity status of the modem. For instance, if the light is off, it means an inactive internet connection, while a flashing online light means that the modem is trying to establish a connection. On the contrary, the on light means that the modem is connected to the internet and is working well.
The link light is responsible for sharing information about the Ethernet connection. It has a green color, and a flashing light means that Ethernet’s information packets are flowing. This light turns solid green when the Ethernet connection has been established and is life.
So, are you clear on the purpose of the lights?
