Owners of this device probably already know that there are 8 LEDs in a transparent dome on the top. According to Netgear, each LED is supposed indicate activity on each of the 8 antenna's that are in the device.
With DD-WRT, this indicator is no longer functioning. A quick shout out to Eko asking how those LEDs are run:
it's done in kernel ar boot. Netgear uses it as char device.
See e.g. my linux.v24_2/arch/mips/bcm947xx/time.c
That doesn't really mean much to me but perhaps someone on the this forum would have some thoughts on this?
I'd like to +1 the request for more info; is there any practical way for the [power] user to leverage these LED's? I enjoy bright lights; especially those I can script as I did for my WRT's of the past.
