Has the ring LED on your Netgear Orbi turned pink? This implies that the Orbi router or satellite is unable to have access to the internet. But there can be various other reasons for this problem which we have mentioned ahead. A quick solution to Netgear Orbi pink light problem is a simple reboot process. However, if the reboot does not help, then you can try the troubleshooting hacks that we are going to discuss in this blog. Now, without wasting any more precious time, here we commence our troubleshooting process.
We hope you have rebooted Orbi already as we mentioned earlier and we also hope you haven’t forgotten to unplug the Orbi from the wall socket. If not, then repeat the process again by unplugging the Orbi from the power source. In case, this process could not help you resolve the issue, then use the hacks that have been discussed below:
Netgear Orbi pink light on the router means a poor connection between the router and modem. The pink ring light on the satellite signifies a poor connection between the router and the satellite which can stop you from accessing orbilogin.net. So, you are now supposed to fix the connectivity issues between the devices. Bring the Orbi router closer to the modem such that they can communicate smoothly. The major reason for the poor connection is the excessive distance between the devices. This generally happens if you have connected them using a wireless source. However, if you have used a cable to connect them, then have a good look at the cable. Found it worn out or damaged? Well, you know who is the actual culprit now. Replace the cable immediately with the one that is in good condition.
You need to do the same thing if the ring light of the Orbi satellite is pink. Bring the satellite closer to the router and check the cable which you have used to connect them in case they are connected using a wire.
If by fixing the poor connection the Orbi pink light does not get fixed then check the power supply to the Orbi. Perhaps there is some glitch in the power supply which is causing the pink light. So, check the power socket to which the Orbi router or satellite is plugged in. Do you see it broken? Unplug the router from this socket and plug it into some other non-damaged socket. Also, make sure that the power adapter is plugged in properly into the socket. The connection should nowhere be near loose. Do the same with the satellite if the satellite ring light is pink. After you are done addressing the poor power supply issue, observe the Orbi router or Orbi satellite color. Proceed to the next hack if the ring light is still pink.
Outdated firmware on the Orbi might also be the cause behind the Orbi pink light issue. You might have forgotten to update the Orbi. So, we recommend you check if any updates are ready to be installed. If yes, then download the firmware file on your PC and get it installed on the Orbi. To know how to update firmware, simply get in touch with our experts. We are sure that after your Orbi is updated to the most recent firmware version, you no longer will be facing a pink light issue.
This is how you can fix Netgear Orbi pink light issues. We are very sure that by using the troubleshooting tips that have been discussed in this blog, you are able to get rid of the pink ring light on your Orbi router or satellite. Now onwards, make it a point that you always keep an eye on the firmware updates released by Netgear and keep your Orbi WiFi mesh system updated all the time. This way you can avoid occurrences of many Netgear Orbi related issues and also enhance the performance of your Orbi device.
