What the light means

The light emanating from the center of your Google Wifi point provides a general status update at a glance. Different colors and pulses will tell you right away how your Wifi point is performing.

Note for OnHub users: If you have a TP-Link OnHub, the light is located around the top, just inside of the outer shell. On the ASUS OnHub, the light is found near the bottom-front of the device.

Here’s a guide on the different color states.
