How do I restore the GPS signal on my network extender?

Anyone else? I didn't change anything. Happened overnight.

(1) Woke up to fast blinking red sys light and GPS was solid blue. So I did a power cycle on Network Extender.

(2) Now I have a slow blinking red sys light and solid red GPS light. Also did a power cycle with router and modem. Have waited hours for GPS lock, but still in the same condition.

Any suggestions?

1)  sounds like an abnormality, which doesn't really explain the issue. 

Persistent solid red or slow / fast-blinking red:

Abnormal condition.

2)  sounds like more of the same, except the GPS finally has a lock.

I might completely unplug the modem, router, and extender extender for a few min and then turn on the modem, wait for it to boot, then the router, let it boot, then the extender and give it a while.  Those extenders are finicky devices.  If that doesn't help, you'll need to find a way to get a call to Verizon so that they can remotely refresh it perhaps.
