Network Extender not connecting/working

I got a Network Extender about two months ago and it had been working fine since the day I set it up. Three days ago it started to act up. The first thing I noticed was the system light now just blinks red. Then the next day the GPS light turned to solid red.

 

I haven't moved the device since It was working and my internet hasn't had any issues. I have already tried powering it off over night then reconnecting it. I also tried swapping the Ethernet cable with no improvement. Anyone know what could be causing this or how to go about fixing it?

 

Thanks,

Jake

Talking with a tech on the phone I figured out that fast blinking red light and sold GPS light means the device is not getting an IP from your router or not connecting to the correct IP ( AKA firewall blocking something).

 

To resolve this I created a reserve IP for the Network Extender then put that IP under DMZ. Now I have all blue lights
