Solid amber light on base station on the camera icon which according to the KB says not connected to internet. My internet is wokring fine and no changes were made by me. Havent had access to my cameras since about 1pm PST Yesterday.

Arlord,

 

A solid camera LED on the base station indicates the base station needs to be reclaimed. Did you perform a factory reset at any point on the base?

 

Log in to your Arlo account and navigate to Settings > My Devices > select the base station > Remove Device. After it has been removed press and hold the reset button on the base station until all LEDs flash amber.

 

Log back in to your Arlo account and click "Add Device", select base station and follow the on screen instructions.

Solid amber on the middle ( internet led ) would be the lack of internet connection. Normal is green and blinking at times showing activity.

 

If the camera ( right most of 3 ) led is amber ...I would attempt to resync the cameras ( at least try one )
