I notice that the power led is always off now, even if I turn on or just reboot, on my AR750S (Slate).
I looked in /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio/leds and I saw this “gl-ar750s:white:usbpower” along with “gl-ar750s:white:power”
Is this normal?
In my other two AR750 (Creta) “white:usbpower” doesn’t exist. Also I cannot erase if I want to nor edit because I see Brightness in 5 in “:white:usbpower”.
Meanwhile “white:power” is 255 Brighness so I think that’s ok.
I don’t know if the problem is caused by this “:white:usbpower” or it is just LED malfunction or that the LED is burned out.
Somebody can help me?
EDIT 4 hours later:
I disabled/enabled STA Wifi and changed Local Domain Names in all routers (just for fun) in LuCI and the LED is ON again…so no burned out LED.
EDIT 5 hours later:
The LED turn off again alone, no changes made to the router.
Yes, no problem with router, just Power LED always OFF now, other LEDS OK, never touched LED config.
I have nothing in USB port, just SD card and one wired network in LAN Port1, WAN and WAN6 are disabled in Interfaces, because always using WISP which I connect with luci no with GL.UI. Never disconnects from AP at 50mts.
Plugins: upnp, wifi-schedule, samba and ddns in luci.
Also when updated firmware reset factory, power led OFF too, never ON and no LAN cable no plugins installed yet, factory config only.
Have you checked that the two wifi radios are working fine? When I use luci-app wifi.schedule to switch off wifi radios, the two Led also are OFF but never the Power.
Now the Power LED is always OFF even if I switch ON router to the electricity.
Sorry I don’t know about different versions of AR750S
LED is working ok now…
I’m on FW 3.104 (2020-04-27 17:57:57) factory reset installed and now with all plugins working ok also. Never touched LED config. Maybe high humidity here… Tried with different 2A and USB cables…Now it s working with initial transfo and cable…
Thanks for the sharing. I just checked mine, the top half of the label is black, the lower half of the label is white (with the SSID/serial number, QR code on it), so is this the old version or newer version?
Yes, the label is completely black and all the letters in white and everything printed has been faded with the touch of the fingers. If you look fast, you don’t see any label, it’s all the same color as the whole router there,
I bought it when the Early Bird promo came out (was it 2017?)
And the power LED is off now.
If the letters fade or all gone you have a version 1 an early model version Because i have a version 1 and 2 the version 1 sticker is all black the version 2 is white and black and won’t fade or rub off
