All the ports on the back flash green.

That is a confirmation that either the external or internal power supply is failing.


A replacement power supply might extend the life of the AirPort Extreme, but if the problem is internal, then a new outboard power supply will not do anything to help.

All things considered, an A1143 version of the AirPort Extreme is at least 9 years old, and the average useful life of a router designed for home use is about 5 years, so you have had very good luck with your AirPort.
