Check the basics
- Check your modem is turned on and you can see a solid DSL light and blinking internet light
- Can you see any WiFi networks in range? If not, ensure wireless is enabled on your device. You can check our Wireless setup tutorials here
- If not, try connecting your laptop directly to the modem via the Ethernet (yellow) cable.
- Alternatively, try our tutorial on how to set up Wi-Fi.
- Restart your modem
- Unplug the power source on your modem
- Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in
- Wait 2 minutes for your modem to restart
- The DSL light should be solid and the internet light should be flashing
If you have completed the above troubleshooting steps and your broadband connection is still not working you should log a fault here.
Check all connections are secure
- If you have extra equipment such as an extension, unplug these and connect your modem directly to the phone line.
- You should also check that the power and Ethernet (yellow) cables are securely connected at both ends.
