The TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub, having replaced their “Super Router”, has received positive reviews in the press since it’s launch a number of years ago. However, no router performs spotlessly. If you’re seeing coloured lights on your TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub and you’re not sure what it means, here’s our quick guide to what that LED indicates.
What the lights on the TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub indicate
Your Wi-Fi Hub is starting up. You might see this if you suddenly lost power or the router has decided to reboot itself. Sometimes routers reboot automatically to shake off a connection problem. Rebooting your router is often the easiest way to solve connection problems. Sometimes things just get stuck!
Blinking amber and white
Your Wi-Fi Hub is connecting to the internet. Your devices may show they have a Wi-Fi connection, but you won’t be able to access any websites or online apps until the white has gone solid white.
You’re connected to the internet. All is good.
Your Wi-Fi Hub is verifying your connection. If you’ve got a fibre connection you should wait a few minutes. If you haven’t got fibre, or the light stays solid amber for more than 15 minutes, you’ve got a problem. It’s time for a chat with those lovely people on the TalkTalk helpdesk.
