The connection to my modem appears to be fine, but today the extender has started to drop its connection to both my computer (connected via ethernet) and my phone (connected via WiFi). The "Client Link LED" seems to be slowly cycling from Green to Amber to just being off entirely, and then back again. I tried turning it off for several seconds and then rebooting it, but the problem has persisted.

Can't find any information about dropping connection to devices, only what to do if you lose connection to your modem.
 
I would guess that either the Router WiFi signal is weak or that there is interference to the signal. You can check the status of the router (or reset it). You can move the extender closer to the router.

Or you can run an ethernet cable from the LAN on the router to the WAN on the extender. Another option is to use a Powerline Adapter to connect the extender to the router.
