Link: Not Connected

Post by nowusman » Sun Sep 01, 2019 10:17 am

Hi,

I have recently purchased Exetel Wireless Homebroadband Service with a NetComm modem a week back. It was working before (though not stable) but upon restart internet starts working but since yesterday, Internet is not available (WIFI devices are connecting but no internet).

I have checked APN & other settings seems fine. However on basic info page "LINK: Not Connect". Whereas in Advance Setup Model status is not coming as connected.

Please refer to attached screenshot for more detail & help in fixing this issue. Also note that service was not stable earlier as well, I had to restart modem everyday in morning, though WIFI gets connected but no internet.

PLAN: ExeHome 250GB
Service Number: 0432993658


Regards
Usman

I am another customer with the same issue. Started on 15 September and persists even though the router has been restarted and antenna reports full signal.

My mobile Broadband Service no is 0432989205. Thanks.

I'm afraid the firmware update did not resolve the issue for me.

It appears to have installed successfully but I still see the link is not connected. I confirmed the APN is configured correctly in the mobile broadband configuration screen.

Can you try performing a full factory reset on your router and re check with the firmware upgrade?

User number 0434812161.
My disconnection problem from last month was fixed with the Firmware upgrade.
Since then I have had a lot of dropp outs though when it works it works well .
NOW I have no connection ar all. My last recorded data download was on 20 Oct. I have had several calls to support help, they ask their supervisors for help but cannot find a fault and have not given me any ticket numbers. They last said they will look at connection issues but I think it may be a faulty modem or sim card.
When I log into the Netcomm modem using an erthernet cable unusual things include -
the main status screen flicks to a blank sceen at least once every 10 seconds.
Internet is shown as not connected
The sim status changes from connected to not connected and back to connected at least once every few minutes.
If I remove the sim card if still shows connected every few minutes.
The Wifi and signal strenght lights are good and the wifi connection is good.
If I cannot get a stable connection I would rather terminate the contract and return the modem. Have had too much downtime already.
