Port LED/Port Status Light Meaning for NWA210AX

I have two NWA210AX APs connected to two different models of Zyxel PoE++ switches. Both APs are showing a medium-paced blinking amber/yellow port light on the UPLINK port.

I'm not referring to the large LED light on the front of the AP, I'm referring to the small port light on the back of the AP, associated with the UPLINK port.

My assumption (based on other hardware) is that a blinking amber light means the AP is working at a reduced speed (like10Mbps or 100Mbps). Is this the correct interpretation of the port's light? This would indicate a problem if so. Are the port lights and their meanings documented anywhere?

    Hi @Cmccoy ,

    The NWA210AX is a Wi-Fi 6 capable AP featuring a 2.5Gbps multi-gigabit Ethernet port. The AP's uplink port displays different light colors based on the link rate:

    • A green light indicates a link rate of 2.5Gbps.
    • An orange light indicates other link rates (1000/100/10 Mbps).

    Additionally, blinking lights signify that data is being transferred.
