Default 5G light not working

Hey guys,

I have a minor issue with a new WN3500RP.

Both 2.4g & 5g work fine. I've connected to them & see them both on inSSIDer.

My issue is with the 5g light on the device. Its never on, is this a common problem or maybe just a dead LED? The 2.4 light works fine. It jumps between green & orange.

The 5G light however has never turned on even with a working *_5GEXT network.

Similar problem happened with me. I had to change the mirror at last. Were you able to find more appropriate answer to it.

I have exactly the same problem and Netgear are unable to resolve it.
I'm about to return the product and buy a new brand.
