My Airport Extreme is flashing amber (slowly). Have tried resetting it  (soft and hard) but to no avail. Can't access it via Utilities either. Any advise?

    After you "Hard Reset" the AirPort Extreme by holding in the reset button for 9-10 seconds and then releasing.....

     

    And after allowing a full minute for the Extreme to restart to a slow blinking amber light.....

     

    Please list each individual step that you are performing....and....what happens after each step.

    HI Bob

     

    Maybe you can assist me with my next question: The reason for me wanting to reset my Base Station in the first place is because I have a 2 external USB drives attached to it (with a usb hub), but these drives only mount once I've restarted the base station, the usb hub and the drives. Is this normal? What am I doing wrong...? Each drive and the usb hub have their own power suppply...
