Slow (1Hz) flashing red Status LED means that the null connector is active. This is the default case when you've done a factory reset. Activate another connector to initiate connecting to a server.
Fast flashing red Status LED means openSPOT is trying to connect to the selected server, but it can't connect (network issues, or server is down). In this case you should try using another server. In case you are using a BrandMeister server: please check the hotspot security setting on your BrandMeister SelfCare page at https://brandmeister.network/ If hotspot security is turned on, you have to use the hotspot password you've set there as the server password in the openSPOT. If hotspot security is turned off, then you have to use the default server password which is "passw0rd" (without the double quotation marks).

Make sure openSPOT is connected to the same router your browser device is connected to with an Ethernet cable. If http://openspot.local/does not work then please open the web interface by entering openSPOT's IP address in your browser. You can find openSPOT's IP address by looking at the DHCP client list in your router's web interface, or you can use an IP or MDNS scanner app.
