Light on the side of DWA-171 which is always blinking
« on: March 25, 2020, 12:52:28 PM »

Hi,

i have got the problem, that the light on the side doesnt stop blinking, even though i wish it would.
If someone knows how to stop it, iŽd be really thankful for help.

Greetings,

How about a piece of black tape over the end?

Thats what i have already done  :). Nevertheless, iŽd be glad if i could deactivate it somehow, because i am
afraid all the stripes around it do somehow affect its efficiency (feel free to correct me if im wrong, my IT knowledge isnt very large)

Just got a mail from the tech-support telling me: The light cant be disabled.
I guess stripes around it are definitely the best idea to solve this ^^ .
I just wonder how stuff like that is produced without anyone who recognizes, that this could annoy some people

For the most part it seems not alot of people are bothered by the LED. I presume most are using the adapter in day time operations which wouldn't be seen as bright unlike if it was in a dark room.

Not many people have posted this same annoyance. The adapter is going on 6 years old now.  ::)

Some tape or a cover over the end of the adapter will be best solution.

Good Luck
