mr42 lights

hi all,

 

I have an mr42 that has previously worked.  I tried a factory reset by holding the tiny button in for several seconds.

 

after that, when attempting to boot I get a steady orange light followed by the rotating rainbow lights, then back to steady orange at which point the lights on the ethernet port go dark.

 

am I dealing with a failure?  any tips on recovering this thing?

Is it claimed and added to a network?

 

Kind of a big deal

Re: mr42 lights

Are you able to plug a notebook into the Ethernet port that it connects to and access the Internet ok?

Usually you'll get the orange light when it can't find the gateway. Does it pick up a DHCP address?
