Hello and thank you for the suggestion!
Unfortunately, the response is as follows:
Status LED turns SOLID red (not blinking 3 times), the LAN LEDs flash a couple of times then after about a minute the status turns green.
Nothing I do will cause the status LED to blink red THREE times as the manual says it should.
A thought: Am I reading the manual wrong? I read the manual as stating first the Status LED blinks TWO times and goes off during the password reset step and if the push button is still held,it will blink an additional THREE times.
Is it possible that during the Password Reset that the Status LED blinks TWO times ending in the OFF state and that it Turns ON once more and stays on for a while during the Factory Reset and THAT is considered the THIRD blink?
