3G Microcell Light Blinking
My Microcell has worked for several years now. All of the sudden, about a week ago, the 3G Light started blinking. I've tried everything I can think of to get it to reconnect but nothing works. I've tried:
1. Power cycling
2. Disconnecting power to everything (Modem, router, microcell)
3. Checking ports
4. Alternate connections
5. Hard reset button on the back
6. De-registering it and attempting to activate it again.
After all this. It fails on Step 4: Activation of the activation process. It gives the following message:
FTC101: MicroCell was unable to connect to the AT&T network through your broadband connection. Please power cycle your modem, router and the 3G MicroCell (Unplug the power adapter from the wall outlet, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in). If the 3G light on the Microcell does not turn solid green after 30 minutes, please change your MicroCell configuration to the Alternate Connection (if applicable). To view this configuration, refer to page 17 in your 3G MicroCell User Manual. Wait 30 minutes for the 3G light to turn solid green. If problem persists, visit http://www.att.com/MicroCell-Help for advanced troubleshooting steps or call AT&T Customer Service at 1-800-331-0500.
Following these steps doesn't fix the issue. And my internet connection is fine.
