    It's radioactive. Actually, I don't really know. The new WRT54G's (version 3 I think?) have an extra button there that is as yet unused AFAIK. Maybe someone else knows. I'd be interested to find out if it's an added feature or simply eye-candy :p

    I am not sure if the light is supposed to be always on but the button in question is for the new "SecureEasySetup" from Linksys. It also means you have one of the latest hardware versions. No 3rd party firmware uses this yet AFAIK. Enjoy the light show, others are doing mods to add the light.

    My light went on after I flashed with the beta firmware that supposedly fixes a connection problem. Somebody mentioned that if you turn wireless off, the light goes off too.

    Sorry I have no guide nor a link. Just seen people posting that they have added lights. Should be a simple as soldiering it to the main power points similar to the fan mods. There wouldn't be any controling them though just on.

    Yes with the latest firmware, the light does come on in v3 routers. It will be orange if Wireless Security is disabled, and white if enabled, hold it, and it automatically sets up wireless security for you (white light will blink)
