My Broadband Extender Flex 500 and 2 Home Hotspots have generally worked ok for several years. Occasional dropouts have normally been resolved by relinking the hotspots.
Last weekend a dropout was not resolved and I have been unable to get the data light on the Extender to come on. Part of the problem is that the power light on the Extender flashes intermittently. I have read the post that Keith Beddoe directs people to, but after pressing the Link button for 5-8 seconds the power light does not return to a steady green.
I have tried a factory reset on the Extender and also on the router (Hub6) but the problem remains.
I have tried different mains plug sockets. I have a Hotspot plugged into the adjoining mains socket and the Wireless and Power lights are on.
