Customer Question
Does a node need...

Does a node need to be hooked up the modem to work? I have two - one is purple and one is red.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your router?

Netgear

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

I tried setting them up twice. The one node upstairs is solid purple, the downstairs one is flashing red.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

No thank you
