    4G - MiFi 4G LTE LED Colors Explained & Corrected

    Jalsf

      I had the 1st Gen 3G MiFi. It was okay, but not always great. Speed Tests revealed an average of 1.19Mbps download & 1.0Mbps upload. TechSupport (Oscar) was a major help in increasing speed via some firmware updates to 2.24 & 2.0. Yet, I decided to upgrade to the 4G LTE MiFi @ $10 less/mo.

       

      I arrived and it was much faster. Initial speed test resulted and average of 24.0 Mbps download & 22.0 upload. The new MiFi LED would blink green, but never blue, which the brochure says is 4G connection.  I called Verizon and Steve helped straighten it out: Green is the LED color for 4G, the pamphlet is wrong. So, that said, here are the colors

       

      White (unlit) is off

      Yellow - Solid - Is powering down

      Yellow - blinking - is charging

      Red - Sim Card missing or error

      Violet - solid - on 3G, service available but not connected

      Violet - blinking - on 3G & connected

      Green - solid - on 4g, service available but not connected

      Green - blinking - on 4G & connected

       

      BLUE - DOES NOT EXIST

       

      So, if you're waiting for Blue LED, it does not apply 

       

      Green is the 4G color spectrum
