AirPort router flashes Amber
This light tells the signal strength of the internet. If the connection is poor or not proper, then you will get the Amber light. Check the Ethernet cable and connect it firmly at both the ends.
If no light flashes at all, then it means no internet signal on Apple Airport router.
Network printer not responding
If no printer is connecting to the AirPort router, then check the USB cable if It is properly connected or not. The right printer must be selected from the printer window. If the printer is not showing in the list, then it means you have to add the printer manually.
Replace USB port
If the issue with the printer still persists, then you need to change the USB port from port 1 to port 2.
Airport Router sending a poor signal
If the signal strength reflected by Airport router is poor, the following issues are possible:
Check the placement of the router
If you have placed the router and the other networking device like modem or extender at far away distance from each other, then you will get the signal problem. Keep the router away from furniture and other obstructions like a wall, electronic items, and metal surfaces. If you have placed a music system nearer to the Router, then you will get the signal problem. Keep your router away from Electromagnetic rays emitting devices like a Microwave oven, Cordless phone, and TV.
