Complete newbie on OpenWrt. I recently installed OpenWrt v22.03.0 on my Archer C7 v5 router and although everything seems to be working fine, all the lights (except power light) are flashing non-stop. I'm not sure if I should be worry that the router is going break if I keep it in its current state.
I'm currently running simple-adblock on this router, leaving all default settings from openwrt and only made changes according to the instruction provided on simple-adblock installation.
It's normal, the wifi and ethernet LEDs blink to indicate network activity.
The behavior can be changed by altering the LED settings.
Normally only the wifi & ethernet would be flashing but in this case all lights are flashing so I'm not sure if this is normal and the flashing also looks a bit too 'disorderly' as compared to usual.
@mk24 already said it's normal ...
All the lights that are flashing are associated with a network device. From left to right the icons are:
"Narrow radio waves": 2.4 GHz WiFi
"Wide radio waves": 5 GHz WiFi
"Flying saucer" (or it's supposed to be the Earth with a ring around it): WAN Ethernet port
"Desktop screen": LAN Ethernet port(s)
You can put some black electric tape over the LEDs if they are too annoying.
