Switching off the LEDs on the FRITZ!Box

The LEDs always inform you about the current operating and connection status of the FRITZ!Box. If you do not need this information and the light bothers you, you can switch the LEDs off. Error conditions will still be signaled. The LEDs also light up for 3 minutes when you push a button or restart the FRITZ!Box.
