EX3700 Router Link Light

Hey I brought the ex3700 wifi range extender and worked perfectly but I took it out for about 3 days and now the router link goes red after 15mins of putting it in and the device link goes yellow a few times even though I'm right next to it I've tried resetting and reconnecting but nothing works

Re: EX3700 Router Link Light

What Mfr and model # router are you using with the EX? 

What FW is loaded on the EX? 

What is the distance between the main host router and EX?

It's about 12 foot away from this wifi box

Re: EX3700 Router Link Light

12 feet maybe too close. 

 

Try 30 feet from the main host router?

Re: EX3700 Router Link Light

Possibly the unit maybe bad now. Having wifi too close has probably burned out the internal components over time.
