Wont Connect

Extender all it does is flash all the lights on and off, cant reach it by ip address. Already hardwired it to the computer and nothing. No connection and does not pop up on my wifi either. 

Help.

Re: Wont Connect

Have you tried pushing and holding reset for 7-15 seconds while powered on? 

Also, the default ip address if its not setup is 192.168.1.250, have you tried this address? 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

Several Times to both suggestions. Computer doesnt see it when you go straight with the IP Address.   Just continues to blink all lights on and off.

Re: Wont Connect

you could try recovering it via tftp or nmrpflash. 

are you on windows? if so, follow this guide

just make sure you enable tftp

and here's a video walk through.

and if that doesn't work, you can try using nmrpflash
