Is there way to disable led on wifi dongle?


Just wondering if its possible to disable the led on a wifi adaptor. It gets a little distracting when watching movies.

I know i could use duct tape, wondering if an enable and disable option be great.

Im using Edimax EW-7811Un.


I doubt this would be possible with the standard driver. It might be possible with a parched driver but even that is questionable.
As it is OSMC independent I suggest a google search “Linux turn of LED EW-7811Un”

You could spend hours trying to patch the driver to disable the LED and compile a custom kernel (assuming it’s possible, it may not be just from the driver - it might be in the firmware blob) or you could put a tiny piece of black tape over the light. I know what I’d rather do… :wink:
