    My router is giving me troubles all of a sudden. It's been flashing the yellow/amber light and I cannot connect to the internet anymore through it.

    I've unplugged it and used a different ethernet cable through it, but it still won't connect.

    However, my internet does work when I directly plug the ethernet cable into the back of my Mac. So it's not my ISP, which makes me think it's the router.

    My AEBS is no more than 6-8 months old, and this is the first time I can't seem to fix it. Usually unpluging it and turning it off and back on will work.

    You guys have any other suggestions, or should I take it into the Apple Store?

    Can you get into Airport Utility for it? If so, click on the amber status ball and it should list what the problems are with it.

    I ended up just holding the reset button and starting over, and it now works. So I'm not sure what went wrong, but glad the restore worked.

    Thanks though :)
