I'm running the latest DD-WRT (by Kong) on my R7000 and I'm looking for a way to turn off all LEDs.
On the forum I already found this, which did the trick partially:

Code:

gpio enable 2
gpio enable 3
gpio enable 8
gpio enable 9
gpio enable 12
gpio enable 13
gpio disable 14
gpio disable 15
gpio enable 17
gpio enable 18
gpio enable 0


However, not for the switch ports. Apparently there is another way to do this;

Code:

et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x1ff
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x0
et robowr 0x0 0x1a 0x0


But when this gives me:

Code:
-sh: et: not found


Is there any other way to kill these LEDs? Or to get "et" (no idea what this is) on the router?
Also, NetGear seems to have support in their official firmware to turn the LEDs off, so there must be a way todo this. Thanks.

Enable stealth mode (disable LEDs) add this to your startup script

Administration > Commands > Save Startup

for i in 2 3 8 9 12 13 17 18 ; do gpio enable $i ; done
for i in 14 15 ; do gpio disable $i ; done

Not to be greedy, but being able to dim the lights would be super-cool.

I appreciate your response, but, as OP points out, this does not affect the 4 switch LED's. Is there any guidance on turning those 4 on/off too?

I've got the R7000, and, since there's 12 lights, I'm hoping to achieve something along the lines of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54O_1mOab4Y

I've got it running on the first 6 lights, but the next 4 (lan LED's) is where the problem lies.

Thanks again for the help

I had the same not found problem with commands et robowr, but trying tomato USB firmware made the trick, the command doesn't seems to be unavailable and I'm abe to switch off Ethernet leds using:
Code:
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x1ff
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x0
et robowr 0x0 0x1a 0x0

I guess that tomato AIO firmware is a bit more complete and et robowr can be found. I suspect those commands could be added to dd-wrt but I can't find package. Thus and for now on, I'm using tomato.

What DD-WRT firmware version did you try? Those et commands run without error on the latest version (mine is 26160).

Thank you for the tips guys - I was on an older build of DD-WRT (24200M). I'm up-to-speed on how to get the latest build for the R7000 now.

I'm also able to run the 3 et robowr commands now - however, what I'm finding is if the 1st ethernet port is connected to my media center, the corresponding LED comes on, if I go with one of the other 3 - it stays off.

I've got a switch in one of the other ports (with some connected devices on the other end), a receiver in another and an XBOX360 (though I didn't get around to turning it on).

So in short, my 2 remaining questions are:
    Can someone share where I might best look to understand how the et robowr command works, and whether I could use it to turn each ethernet LED on / off individually.

    Has anyone else noticed ethernet port 1's LED remaining active after running the sequence of LED off commands?


Thanks again for all your help!

Asus RT-AC87U build 26405 gives the following error:

sh: eval: line 1: et: not found

How enable "stealth mode" on this router? Some applications really need all lights off.

Which version of DD-WRT are you running?

Consider updating to at least 26160

et is not included in BrainSlayers builds, he doesn't compile it.

So sorry I posted this - it's evidently too late for me to be giving any kind of advice!

someone once told me that asus merlin and tomato support this for your device, if it is a critical feature perhaps you could check those out Wink

that said, black electrical tape is likely going to be the winner Smile

as originally discussed here:
http://dd-wrt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=952476

(If you choose to continue poke around at GPIO stuffs keep in mind that R7000 and your device are quite different.)
