Commtrend powerline ethernet adaptor

This pair of adaptors were working ok, now there is no comms.
On the units the status light is red and the ap light is orange the ethernet
activity light flashes green.

The synchronize function does not appear to do anything. There does not seem to be a reset available on the units.

Are they probably faulty?

I have two Belkin powerline adaptors 200mbps type

Your hard disk is failing and should be replaced. Have you tried to press F1 when you get the message? If this doesn't help try to enter the bios and disable S.M.A.R.T.
