Default Blue dome light on WNDR3400

My dad has a Netgear n600 WNDR3400 wireless router.

When it is standing on the edge, there is a blue, round, dome shaped light on the side. It has a "wifi" symbol on it and says "WPS". You can push the button and the entire button is lit with a blue light.

There is no info as to what this button does when it is pushed and lit up.

I'm sure someone here knows so thanks in advance!

WPS is an alternative way to have WPS capable wifi devices to connect wireless router

I bought this router about 2 months ago and I am continually losing the network connection on my computer, but just for 5-10 seconds, then it reconnects. Happens several times an hour.

I noticed that when this happens the blue dome light flickers instead of being on constantly. Is that an indicator of a problem.

Just for fun I turned the blue light out to see what would happen. It went out, but a half hour later it was back on. What's up here?

Anybody with any ideas? I'm guessing it's a bad modem, but would like input.

blinking doesn't mean it's bad.


somebody might ahve tried connecting to it using the WPS.

some model will have blue lights to go off when you depress few seconds.
