This device is in AP mode. Over the last few days it has stopped radiating a signal even though the Air LED is on. Can't ping it, either. This has happened a couple of times, now.

I can't remember whether the power LED has always been at very low brightness as it is now. Interested if another owner could let me know how bright their pwr LED is.

The voltage while plugged in is 5.1V so this looks OK. The pwr LED has a lot less voltage across it than the Air LED, for example. The two electrolytics on the board don't show any sign of bulging or oozing innards. Probably worth swapping them out though - dunno. Runs really cool so can't be overheating issues.

Looks like a new one will have to be bought.

No one using this router? Would like to know whether the dim Power LED is normal. Ta.

I just got one back from a mate yesterday, had loaned it to him. I'll plug it in tonight and let you know!
