3G Microcell stopped working
I have had the old orange and white 3G microcell for about 7 years. The Model is DPH151-AT and it says 12v on the bottom. There was a short power outage a day or 2 ago and today I noticed my cell phone did not say Microcell but said ATT. I did come here and read that the power supply could be the problem. I have replaced the PS before and the one I have now has a 12 Vdc output and it measures 12.3 Vdc. It was replaced about 1 year ago and has been working at 12Vdc all this time.
I checked Amazon and they have the replacement PS for the DPH151-AT that all say 12 Vdc when they do list the output. I checked for a 16 Vdc and did not find much.
The Lights: The top power led is solid green. Second led down (ethernet) is off but I know it works because I am typing this. I have a ethernet cable from my router to the 3G and another ethernet cable from the 3G to my desktop PC and I am on the internet. The 3rd GPS led is solid green. The 4th led for the computer is off. The bottom 3G led just blinks slowly (about 3 seconds between blinks). I unplugged the power on the router and checked the wire from it and into the 3G and they both clicked. (I'm still on the internet). I have unplugged the 3G and measured the 12.3 Vdc. I pushed the reset button for a second and reapplied power but did not hold down the reset switch while doing so.
Is there any other tests I can do or just leave the 3G led blink overnight?
