My cable modem and D-Link router are in my den, and occasionally someone sleeps on the sofa in the den. With all of the other lights out, the LED's on these 2 devices are very bright. I had a roll of the blue painters tape in the garage so I cut a couple of strips of the blue tape and put on top of the LED's. The blue tape is somewhat translucent so it blocks some but not all of the light. Even with 2 layers of the tape over the LED's, I can still see them when I want to see them, but they don't light up the room so much when the other lights are off. I used the blue painters tape because it peels off easily. For some reason I had to remove the tape from one of the devices and it came off easily and relatively cleanly.
