Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
I purchased a used AT&T microcell device and am trying to activate it. It could be that the device itself is bad, but I don't know that for sure. I have another microcell which works fine at this address. The new device has supposedly been deactivated from its old account and is now plugged in between my router and modem (tried to connect to router already, too). I activated it on the website, but it never gets past the first "Power Up" step. The power and GPS lights are steady green, but the other three lights are blinking green. What does that mean? I tried switching ethernet cables, and that didn't help. I know my router and ips work with the device because I have another one, and that works. What are my options here? I called AT&T, and they say there is no problem on their end. Can I get the device repaired somehow? Is there anything else to try first? Thanks.
Is the ethernet light green (the one with the "world" on it)? Try a hard reset (holding in the reset button on the back for about 30 seconds).
No, the MicroCell can not be repaired.
Are you using both Mcells at the same location? Have you swapped the first Mcell with the used one and does it work with the same wiring?
Is your router connected to the upper Ethernet port on the Mcell and the modem connected to the lower port on the Mcell?
