The green LED .... please refer to the WN3000RPv3 User Manual for the LED information on p.6. Talking about the Power LED probably?


You have to figure out if the extender does answer to ping on the default IP (use the RJ45 LAN connector) - for this you need a computer in the same subnet, ensure .250 is not used by any other device on your network. This might allow to tftp to push the potentially broken firmware. Process is similar to this -> https://kb.netgear.com/19841/Reinstall-the-firmware-on-a-router-without-the-setup-CD-recovery-tool
