Why are my wireless lights blinking? 

A wireless router's lights blink when transmitting data to a Wi-Fi device, such as a computer or mobile phone. As long as the Wi-Fi device is able to receive and send data over its wireless connection to the router, the blinking light can be ignored. The router's lights blink when the device sends and receives data transmissions, indicating the data has been properly processed and sent to either the Wi-Fi device or the modem.

  • Depending if the Link light is Green or Orange and blinking slow or fast.
    Orange blink indicates there is no source device providing audio or video to the tx unit.
    Green fast blink indicates it is trying to synchronize with the rx unit or the source device is not powered on or connected to the tx unit.
    Green slow blink indicates it is scanning for the rx unit.
    Make sure the source device is connected to the tx unit in the "HDMI Input" port and not the "Out to Tv" port.
    Try a second source device such as a DVD player, Game console or computer.
