How can I cover the lights on my router?

Recommended Posts

Rod at home

A few months ago I got a new Netgear Nighthawk router. Love it! There's only one thing that's a problem with it and that's the lights on it. Yes, I know they're there for a reason, and I appreciate it, but sometimes I'm in the room there my router is, trying to sleep, and the blinking lights keep me awake or wake me up. I have been putting a cloth napkin on it to hide the lights, but I don't like that idea, because I'm afraid it will make the router too hot, especially with the weather getting warmer. So, how to I block the blinking lights on the router, so that it isn't apparent, from the back of the router?

Black electrical tape or black nail polish.

I second the electrical tape.

Electrical tape sounds promising.

It's also not permanent so you can remove it if you want to later.

Black nail polish works as well. May be a little more permanent, but should "peel" off depending on the brand.

Well, yeah, that would absolutely work the best. :)
