Cable Gateway Pro Status Lights

This article will explain the meaning of the status lights found on the Cable Gateway Pro, the default modem supplied for iiNet Cable services.

These lights may help you quickly check on the status of your connection which may be useful when troubleshooting.

Important light states to note

  • If the US and DS lights are BLINKING but the Online light is OFF, the Cable service may not yet be activated on our end. This typically occurs within one business day of your Cable service connection appointment. If you have any concerns, please call us on 13 22 58 and we'll be happy to help.
     
  • If the US and DS lights are BLINKING and the Online light is ON, the modem is updating its firmware. No action is needed - simply wait for the update to complete.
