Got one of these Sagemcom Gateway F@ST 3864V3 AC gateways today along with a NetgearCM500V.
My question with the Sagemcom Gateway F@ST 3864V3 AC is :
I notice the LED's on the front flash one by one across and back continuously. Like cascading across and back.
I cannot for the life of me fine a user guide that explains what all these light do. Yes internet & wifi still working.
Is this pattern/ sequence trying to tell me something ?

Are you talking about the normal function lights?

Yes and No. Soz.
My Sagecom is black and a bit different.
The lights on the front (6 of them) flash in sequence but one by one
So light 1 quick flash and goes out, then # 2 & so on as if its scrolls across and then it goes backwards, then forwards and repeats.
Weird. All good after I rebooted, just curious as to what it is or what its telling me.

I get what you are saying and I have not read any similar posts before. It would be helpful if they supplied the manuals with these modems. Maybe it was a firmware update and it was waiting for a reboot.

Now this morning on the Sagemcom F@ST 3864V3 AC all lights are on and green.... Net is working but yes always a but...the internet and WIFI lights are flashing together 3 times constantly. 1, 2 ,3 (repeat) Now obviously this is telling me something ?
Yes reset to factory.
Optus chat guy couldn't help me . . referred me to the sagemcom site. Thanks for that.
Any ideas guys

Hmm I found another post that describes the lights like the Night Rider car and that I do understand. The 2 responses don't really explain the situation. Have you tried another reboot to see if the lights go away?

Is it affecting your connection as far as you can tell?
2018-10-12 09:15 AM
No I don't think it is.
All seems fine I'm just being curious and getting to know the new modem/ router.

Yes I am curious myself and doing the Google thing did not help on this occasion. I even checked a couple of other Sagemcom modems and nothing was mentioned. From memory the light show happens briefly when turning on the modem or when doing a firmware update. Having said that is there any mention in the modem admin on a firmware update?
