Ethernet connection not working on WiFi Booster Range Extender

Hi All, I have been using a Netgear wifi extender (EX2700 N300) in my loft with the ethernet cable into a laptop. Until recently it has worked fine, but now the interent connection has started to drop out regularly. Clicking on the ethernet connection I get the message 'no internet', but all the lights are on on the extender, however, the ethernet light blinks. I also get no connection through the 2G_EXT wifi connection either. I connected it to my router using WPS with no issues originally. Is there anything I can do? 

Model: EX2700|N300 WiFi Range Extender Essentials Edition

try factory resetting it and reinstalling it using the installation assistant and NOT wps. See if that works.
