Smart Wifi Boosters Stopped Working

Were all fine until Saturday night when they just started switching off.

When I try to reset or switch back on they go purple, then flash blue before switching off.

Thanks in advance.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Software updating, syncing or starting up. Keep device on."

from the manual:

I bought a dual band Netgear Extender which works beautifully.

Yeah, it doesn't stay purple, it flashes blue then switches itself off.
