The fun with gl-inet routers never ends…
I have a gl-AR750S-EXT (it’s dark gray, so maybe a "Slate?) that has been working fine for a couple years - or at least well over a year. Yesterday, it stopped outputting any power to the output port (USB Type-A to the phone). Only the power light was on.
Unplugged it, plugged back in, same thing.
Switched it to a DIFFERENT 2.4A power supply. Same thing.
Is there some method for getting this thing to boot and start working again, or is it DOA?
S’too bad, 'cause other than the fact (admitted by gl-inet) that it won’t output enough current to keep the cell phone charged, it’s been a reasonably usable router.
I used the same power connector into the other router, a Beryl, and it boots fine. The Beryl is a MAJOR PITA to keep connected to the phone. Regardless of the cable, it constantly drops and reconnects. But, it DOES boot. 'Course it won’t keep any of the phones charged either, but today’s crisis du jour is getting the AR750S up and working…
