Hey everyone, so i have been using a netgear powerline 1000 for about a year now and about 2 or 3 days ago the light switched to red. The connection oscolates between being super slow to not being connected at all.

Im not sure why it would suddenly go out like this, no new electronics are plugged in in the house.

Im curious if the powerline itself might need replacing due to being a year old or if there could possibly be another explanation for this. Id prefer to not have to buy a new adaptor.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

From the installation guide:

"Pick a plug" LED
The Pick A Plug feature lets you pick the electrical outlet with the strongest link performance, indicated by the color displayed by the LED:

Red. Link rate < 50 Mbps (good).
Amber. Link rate > 50 and < 80 Mbps (better).
Green. Link rate > 80 Mbps (best).
Off. The adapter did not find any other compatible Powerline devices using the same encryption key.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If that LED used to be Amber or Green, unit could be faulty.
