    I would give the folks at Logitech the benefit of assuming they did think of that as the SB Boom does not have Ethernet lights as a typical usage of that device is as a bedside clock/radio. The other aspect to consider is that the SB Receiver only has the front LED to indicate status so the Ethernet LEDs perform a useful function in knowing something about a wired connection.

    Anyone Run The Radio Wired ? Lights inBack?

    That's exactly right, the LEDs are only on the Duet Receiver because
    it doesn't have a screen to show messages about connectivity.
