My Pivot Power Genius is blinking all sorts of colors, what do each of them mean?
The Pivot Power Genius uses a chip that blinks to indicate the connection status of the device. Here is a legend for what each color means: Blinking orange: The device is cleared and ready to take Wi-Fi credentials. Blinking green: The device is connected to your wireless network. Blinking red: The device failed to connect to your wireless network. Alternating blinking red/orange: Your router's firewall may be blocking the connection. There are a few more complex color codes.
