    Could be a few things. If you have an iPhone, you can download the Airport Utility app and it will tell you what the problem is.

    If your wifi is still functioning correctly, more than likely you just need to update the firmware. So far I've encountered the blinking yellow light when there's an update, no internet connection, and the occasional random automatic reset. (Not sure if the automatic reset is an intentional thing or a glitch, but either way, the light blinks while it is resetting and then goes off once it is done.)

  • If there is an alarm for "Double NAT", Router Mode in Network tab must be changed to "Off(Bridge Mode) ". After clicking on the update or save change, yellow light blinking will change to green too.
