Mine is doing the same thing.  Started last night.  No idea what do to.  4 months old.  This thing has been such a headache.  Have to reset every couple days.

Mine started doing it nov 15.  It now kills my home network if left on. Not just a brick, a vile evil poisonous brick.

Re: ex8000

I was able to revive the EX8000.  I had to tftpd the firmware to it, wait until it had loaded the firmware, reboot it, factory reset, reboot again, set it up again.  It is working now.

 

The reason it was killing my network is it had corrupted firmware and was booting to 192.168.1.1 for tftp - this caused an IP collision with the router (I use the ex8000 as an access point with wired backhaul).
