Welcome to the discussion area!
A solid amber light is an indication of a possible internal failure within the AirPort Extreme (AEBS). Try a Factory Default Reset to see if that will get things going again.
Pull the power plug on the back of the AEBS and leave the device off for 15-20 minutes
Hold in the reset button +and keep holding it in+ as you plug the power back in to the AEBS
Release the reset button after 8-10 seconds
You will need to reconfigure the AEBS if the Default Reset is successful.
If no luck, try the Factory Default Reset again. If the device will not reset after several tries, I'm afraid that the AEBS has experienced an internal failure and will need to be replaced.
Interestingly enough the Airport was working this morning when I woke up. I left it as is, plugged in, amber light on and was greeted by a green light when I went to check it.
The airport has been wonky in the last few months so I suspect it is almost time for a new one (itʻs been 3 years I think). Thanks for the info on the Factory Default Reset. Should I get another amber light I will definitely try that before heading out to purchase a new Airport.
