Disable indicator LEDs on Netgear R7000 with Shibby Tomato

If you’re using Netgear Nighthawk X3 (R7000) with Shibby Tomato firmware and you hate blinking indicator LED lights on top of the router, here is a trick to turn most of them off and stop them from blinking. I still haven’t figured all out, but I found many control so far for individual LEDs.

Just login to your router, go to Administration and then Scripts


Copy this text to Scripts (Init) field, like example shown above in the image. Commands can be stacked together to achieve desired effect.

Red/white POWER LED
WHITE: gpio enable 3
RED: gpio disable 3

Red/white WAN LED
WHITE: gpio enable 8
RED: gpio disable 8

Disable only WAN LED
et robowr 0x0 0x1a 0x0

Disable/enable only LAN LED’s
DISABLE: et robowr 0x0 0x16 0x0
ENABLE: et robowr 0x0 0x16 0x1ff

Disable WAN and LAN LEDs
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x1ff
et robowr 0x0 0x18 0x0
et robowr 0x0 0x1a 0x0

Enable/disable WPS Button LED
gpio enable 14
gpio disable 14

Enable/disable Wireless Button LED
gpio enable 15
gpio disable 15

Enable/disable USB1 LED
gpio enable 17
gpio disable 17

Enable/disable USB2 LED
gpio enable 18
gpio disable 18

Click Save button below and then Reboot… on the left side since the script kicks in on router initialization. After router reboot, settings should take effect.

Will update this as I find more functional commands…
