What version of libreCMC is being used? Providing a redacted system log
might give some more insight into what is going wrong.

The first LED to turn on is the WAN LED. By default, it indicates that
u-boot has loaded the kernel and the kernel is now running. The 3 LEDs
can be programmed to do a wide range of things and can be configured in
/etc/config/system or System -> LED Configuration under luci.
If there is a problem with the LED, then it could indicate a more
serious issue with the router.
