The Signal Strength LED’s are not working correctly, or you would like to know how to read the signal strength meter that is built into some CradlePoint routers.
If your router doesn’t seem to be registering or showing you the correct intervals when blinking (solid/ flashing), you may be experiencing a signal strength issue.
In order to read the signal strength meter that is built into some CradlePoint routers you must understand that the Signal Strength LED’s work on a Signal Percentage Scale from the Modem placed into the CradlePoint router.
- The percentages can be found in the administration pages of the router at http//:192.168.0.1
- Once you have logged into the router, you can find the percentages under the Modem tab à Info Page.
Below are the Percentage breakdown and how that percentage is represented via the LED’s on the router:
0% – 12% = 1st LED flashing
12% – 25% = 1st LED solid
25% – 38% = 1st LED solid and 2nd LED flashing
38% – 50% = 1st LED and 2nd LED’s solid
50% – 62% = 1st and 2nd LED’s solid and 3rd LED flashing
62% – 75% = 1st, 2nd and 3rd LED’s solid
75% – 88% = 1st, 2nd and 3rd LED’s solid and 4th LED flashing
88% – 100% = all 4 LED’s solid
