    Judging from you symptoms, it may be your wireless card in the SB3 has failed (a common problem). Sometimes removing the wireless card in the unit will allow it to function (although only on wired ethernet). If this turns out to be the issue, I think some on this forum have been able to find replacement wifi cards - or you could just used wired.

    Three most common issues/fixes for SB3:
    1. WiFi card (as tcutting suggests)
    2. PSU
    3. solder joint at power input

    1 and 2 are simple user replacements (you'll need torx screw driver to open the case for WiFi card). 3 requires solder experience obviously. Your symptoms seem to suggest one of these easy fixes. PSU might be functioning but damaged therefore not sending enough power to unit but enough to light the internal red LED.

    Beyond those likely means board level diagnosis & repair, few woulf tackle it and probably cost more than simply buying a complete used unit.
