Solved Belkin N300db Wi-Fi Range Extender problem

February 1, 2016 at 11:58:52
Specs: Windows 7
I have a Belkin N300DB which has worked fine. I have just noticed the light is off. Having reset the plug and attempted to connect it in to the network the light is still off , and the wps light on the top does not come on when pressed. Needless to say the _xt channel it generates does not work. Is there a reason why this can stop working- and any thoughts on repair- or is it back to suppliers?

OK I am now going to answer my own question. Fortunately had a spare extender of the same type. Tried this and it sets up fine. Looks like the first one is just dead, an ex extender.

Good for you. I have several Devolo (EoP/homeplug style) ethernet adapters - and one of those simply died, after several years of trouble free use.

I also know of plug-in wifi extenders simply giving up the ghost too - major brands. Not fair to name them as anything electronic can fail at any time; and overall most of this kit is pretty reliable, although some brands are better than others in terms of ease of use.

Incidentally is it possible to open the module? If so perhaps there is a wee cartridge style fuse inside? If so it may have blown and possibly replacing it may get the module working again? Fuses usually go because of a genuine problem; but sometimes they just decide to blow and nothing is wring with the cct. protected by the fuse.
