Thos light only telling you that there's a problem with the router , because the wireless light should be always ON and the power should not be blinking, first thing to do is to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds while the power is ON then unplug the power for 5 seconds.
If still the same problem the router can is bad already and better contact the manufacturer for further troublshooting and if its still under warranty have it replace with them.....

Hope that helps...........

Dont forget to rate the solution FIXYA thank you....

Is there a driver for the SMC2870W and Mac OS X?


This is a standard wireless ethernet bridge and does not need a special driver for MAC OS. It is a Plug n Play device and should self configure using TCP/IP . Here is the manual : http://www.manualslib.com/manual/154817/Smc-Networks-Smc2870w.html?page=20#manual. Your Mac should see the wireless signal. You could use Safari browser to configure if needed. Apparently the Configuration utility is for older windows systems up to XP. You may need some networking skills to do the configuration without it. Good luck.

Wireless LAN button won't switch off.


Most Netgear routers have a recessed button on the back or bottom panel, marked "Reset" or "Restore Factory Settings". Because the button is recessed, you will require a thin tool to press it. Most people use a straightened paperclip.
  1. Power up the router, and wait for it to complete booting up, typically about one minute.
  2. Press the Reset or Restore Factory Settings button until the test or power led starts blinking. This takes about 20 seconds. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the reset was not successful, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the Reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

The PA-4500-M does not have a wireless remote control. The amp turns on when there is an audio signal present at one of the inputs. The power button on the front is the master power, when the amp is ready the front LED will continuously glow RED, when the audio signal is sensed, the LED will glow GREEN. The audio signals must be variable otherwise you cannot control the volume.

I need help setting up the SMC2870W to my gaming system...


You need to run the software provided with the unit. Connect the unit using the provided "crossover" network cable to a PC, this is wired slightly different to a standard network cable so make sure you have the right one - there are many sites that will explain crossover cables and give wiring diagrams.
Go through the setup program and choose the option to use the device as a bridge.

Open the case and check the connection between the case power button and the motherboard. unplug that connection and short out the pins on the mb. The computer should start up. If it doesn't, there is something wrong with the mobo. If it does, there is something wrong with the switch, or the connector wasn't tight.
