    You can press the button to change the color/turn it off. Other than that, I'm pretty sure there are some commands you can pass to it, but I can't remember them right now.

    The command is "led", the syntax (as stolen from Thibor's page - thanks, Thibor) is as follows:

    led <white/amber/dmz/diag/wl> <on/off> [...]

    white (can be abbreviated to wh) - white LED behind Cisco logo
    amber (can be abbreviated to am) - amber LED behind Cisco logo

    Commands can be chained together.

    "led wh off am off" will turn off both the LED's.

    OK...I bricked my GS ver. 2 that I got on ebay playing with telnet, commands, etc....stuff I don't understand and have no business messing with. (It's for sale again on ebay [9721891737] as a brick if anyone's interested). So, today I made a list of about 20 stores in Boise where I might find a GS ver. 2, 2.1, or 3. I wanted the SES button (ver. 2 or above), but still wanted the full 32/8 memory (up to ver. 3). First place I went was Office Max. Must have been my lucky day. In amongst about 10 ver. 4's and 5's (s/n CGN6xx and 7xx), was a lone CGN4xx....a version 2.1!! Brand new!! On sale for $ 69!! Well, it's sitting here all nice and shiny waiting to be flashed with DD-WRT. My question is (after bragging about my turn of fortune!), how does one enter a command script? This particular thread discusses what to enter, but I need to know EXACTLY how to go about it....step by step in minute detail!! Can someone please explain it to me in easy to understand terms? I am about half bright, but stuff like this terrifies me. Especially after bricking the other one!! So if someone would be so kind as to explain how I get "inside" (telnet, ssh, etc.), what I enter and where, when to hit enter, when to reset, etc., I would be forever grateful. And if you ever need medical questions answered, I can handle that.....that's easy.....this script stuff is complicated as hell!! Thanks for letting me ramble!!

    I believe all you have to do is wired your PC directly to your router. Set your PC IP address to, then ping the router makign sure you can talk to the router.

    - Open a Windows Dos Prompt and type telnet
    - enter username as "admin" or "root"
    - enter password

    That's it

    Huh ??? I know how to telnet in...that's how I bricked the other router!! What I'm asking is what commands to enter, where to enter them, etc., in order to change the function/color of the SES LED's.
