Every Morning, my E3200 Fios WiFi extender displays a solid yellow status light and has to be power cycled before I can connect to the internet through it. What's going on?

Is it connected by Wi-Fi back to the main router, or is it using a Coaxial connection?

If Wi-Fi, the signal may be a little low and perhaps the extender needs to be moved closer.

If Coax, check to make sure your Coax connections are tight (hand tighten + quarter turn with a wrench), and also make sure any splitters are one Verizon supplied, or is one rated for up to 1.7Ghz.
