Nanostation failure?

After being deployed about a year, a Nanostation M2 went off the air.  When power is applied, only the power LED illuminates.  When a computer is connected via ethernet, the LAN1 LED starts showing activity, but no IP address is issued and there's no response to localnode:8080 or 192.168.1.1 or .20

I tried holding reset for 15 seconds - no change. 

Any ideas?

When you tried 192.168.1.20, did you set your computer's IP address to something static like 192.168.1.21?
If you did and that didn't work, try the tftp load process with AREDN factory load code.

I didn't have a static IP set

I didn't have a static IP set when I attempted .20 - I'll try it.  I think its a long shot, considering AREDN firmware was successfully installed. 

Any other ideas?  What is the rightmost LED supposed indicate?

(the far right is the bootup indicator:  fast flash during pre-boot, slow flash during bootup, steady on when fully booted)

Okay I'll give it a shot. By the way you may want to add that description to the LED page
