The red light on our router usually indicates that there is a problem. Are you seeing a blinking red light on the Jio Fiber? Do you want to know whether it is indicating a serious problem or something you can fix pretty quickly? If the answer is yes, then this article is just for you.
In the next few paragraphs, we are going to discuss what are the most common reasons behind the red blinking light and offer several solutions for the problem.
To jump straight to the point, the main reason for the red blinking light on the Jio Fiber router is a signal interruption. This means that the router doesn’t receive a signal for some reason. In most cases, the reason for this might be:
- The fiber cable is damaged
- There is a loose cables or connector
- Your ISP is down and so on
What To Do When Jio Fiber Shows Red Light?
Now when we know the reason, there are some solutions that are logical, like checking the cables, checking whether our ISP is down, and a few more.
So, let’s start with the most obvious solutions first.
Check If There Is An Outage
Your ISP can be down for several different reasons like performing a network upgrade, experiencing technical problems, or a power outage and similar. This will often result in the Jio Fiber red light blinking and our internet connection won’t work.
To make sure whether this is the real reason we can get in touch with Jio Customer support. If there is indeed a problem on their side you will get information about that and all you can do at the moment is to wait.
Once your ISP fixes the issue on their end the red blinking light will disappear and everything will get back to normal. Usually, these issues don’t last long so please be patient.
On the other hand, if you find out that there is no outage or any other issue, it is time to check the cables.
Check The Cables (Especially The Fiber Cable)
A damaged cable or connector will prevent your router from receiving a proper signal or it won’t receive a signal at all.
Therefore, we need to check whether the fiber cable is damaged or bent too much at some point. Also, make sure that any other cable in your network is not damaged. Replace any cable you think might be damaged.
Check whether they are connected properly and that there are no loose connections. It would be best to disconnect and reconnect everything, making sure the connections are firm and correct.
You won’t make a mistake if you reboot the router after that and see whether this has fixed the problem. If the Jip Fiber is still blinking red try the next solution.
How To Power Cycle Jio Fiber Router
Performing a power cycle of the router is something we usually recommend as a first solution mainly because it is highly effective and it doesn’t take much time.
However, most people just turn the router off using the power button and then turn it off. On the other hand, it is recommended to do it by disconnecting the power cable. After you leave the router a few minutes without any electricity, plug the power cable back in and wait for the router to boot up completely. If this doesn’t fix the problem, there is something else to do.
