Up until this point, I’ve been using a router from one of your competitors which featured ethernet jacks on the back, and indicator lights on the front - not only an activity light for each port but a signal strength indicator for the 3G/4G modem. I’m upset that your product has its lights on the back where I’d need to use a dental mirror to see them (as I have it in a cabinet). This competiting product also had a power switch, which the Surf SOHO doesn’t.
Did it save 3 cents to not have lights on the front (and maybe 20 cents to not have a power switch)? Or was it some kind of “style choice” like Macs not having a hard drive light (which I think is ridiculous)? Please take this as feedback that I want front lights so I can turn my head and look at the router to see its status immediately, without working any harder.
My cables all arrive at the back of the cabinet, so it’s not practical to turn the router and all the cables around so I can see the lights, and even if I did, then I wouldn’t be able to see the status and WIFI lights on the front.
