I originally set up the router properly and got white lights on both the router and the extender. All of a sudden months later I get a blinking yellow light on the extender. I try pairing closer and it works--get white lights. When I replug in at the location I originally had the extender I get a yellow blinking slow light. Too far away. When I hit the reset button on the extender, I get a solid yellow... it's now indicating that I have no internet connection. This is by the way, right next to my computer that shows a strong signal. Maybe I just don't need it but i don't understand why it is behaving this way. Why is there not enough signal for it all of a sudden?

Found a remarkable thing! I had the same issue with an E3200 Fios extender, only a flashing yellow light when I moved it to the weak area of the house. T it wasn’t working and tried every reboot, relocation and start-over possible. Frustrated, I downloaded several network analyzer apps and discovered it was in fact WORKING!!! Plugged 2 LAN Cables in for TV and cell phone booster...and all WORKED! This is while the extender light blinked yellow- and still is!!! Don’t know if this always the case, but worth a try.

Step 1: plug the yellow Ethernet cables together
step 2: power up the extender
step 3: wait for solid white on both
step 4: unplug bring extended to your room location spot
power it up. You will get yellow light a few times. Be patient. The extended needs to learn your network environment. Go watch TV or go cook something. Boom! Magic. It turned to white!!!!
Ditto. Umpteen times. suggestions dont work either paiting c ethernet or by placing the 3200 near the 3100.
Pressing reset doesnt work either. Didnt have this much trouble c my Nighthawk. Fios, get your act straight.

Is an ethernet pairing worse than wifi c no ethernet cable preferred. An inet post elsewhere claims the Fios instructions to use Ethernet cable "leads to problems later on."
??? Bit cryptic, eh.
