: WHR-G54S diag led, 5 flashes?
: Niko July 06, 2009, 05:47:12 PM

Can someone tell what it means when my WHR-G54S is working fine but the diag led keeps flashing? It flashes 5 times and after a short break it starts flashing again, always 5 times. I use the device as a simple LAN hub, so its WAN port is connected to a modem and two LAN ports to my computer and an IPTV set-top-box. Both devices have a working Internet connection through the WHR-G54S.

Im not seeing an error message for 5 blinks.  Only for 2,3,4, and continuous.  Double check that for me.

   I counted it many times and I'm certain it was 5 blinks. But after I rebooted the WHR-G54S, the blinking stopped and everything works fine.
