Limited connectivity/zero connectivity 2000s

I’ll try to make this as concise as I can.

The first week of may our internet quit. I pulled up the system control page and saw errors that I knew were not the usual ones. After an hour on the phone with tech support I was told my modem had failed and I would be sent a new one.
So I ok’d that.

A couple hours later the internet magically started working again. I received the new modem but didn’t install it until the internet wouldn’t connect again and I saw the same errors as before—this was about 8 or so days later.

I was sorry that I waited that long because this new modem worked like a dream. Very few error codes and speed was much faster.

That lasted for about 4 days.

Internet quit again. Spent a long time with tech support on the phone. Got transferred to tier one. The tech said he could see how someone that wasn’t tier one would think it was the modem but he was seeing serious problems with the radio transmitter on my dish. So a repair person was scheduled—- this was a Wednesday and they could not come until the following Tuesday which is a whole other complaint I have. Anyway repair man came, installed a new radio transmitter and then tried to connect to internet. Didn’t work so he uninstalled the new transmitter and put the old one back on and and then came in and installed another new modem. This was Tuesday June 5th. It has worked a bit but majorly slow and lots of error codes

It currently is not working at all again. System stays is red. Diagnostic code currently is 0204-8000-0400-0047 the system state code is 12.7.1.

We work out of our home and I need to get this fixed. Please help.

Excuse any typos I’m using my tiny phone.

Hi Shelby947,

 

I see you're a long time customer and first time poster, welcome! Thank you for the clear description of events. I'm also seeing a state code on your system right now that's of concern. Let me escalate this to engineering for their input and assistance.

 

  Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

Re: Limited connectivity/zero connectivity 2000s

Thank you so much for your welcome and your prompt response, Liz. I have been with you guys for a long time.

I did forget to add that I do the usual unplug for 20 seconds trick which I did a bit ago and that got us connected again. However there is still a problem. Off and on it tells me there is limited connectivity. It is working at this second with no error codes but I promise they will start happening again.

Thanks so much again for your help.

Re: Limited connectivity/zero connectivity 2000s

Also should I be keeping a list of all of the errors? I figure that’s something you can see on your end so I haven’t been doing that.

Re: Limited connectivity/zero connectivity 2000s

You're welcome. If you see errors other than 12.1.12 or 12.7.1 (basically any 12.x.x codes) take note of that; when you unplug the power from the modem for an extended period of time, we lose the state code history.

Re: Limited connectivity/zero connectivity 2000s

Hello Liz,

 

Any updates you can give me?

 

Our service has been terrible.  Not working more than working.  When it does work, it is extremely slow.  I know I'm repeating myself, but I really need to get this all solved and working like it should.

 

I've had company so I haven't been super vigelent, but I have a partial list of error codes that have occured--I'm not including all of the zeros.

 

Diagnostic Code                               System State Code

 

0049                                                        0.0.0

0402-0481                                             12.1.12

4020-4800-0040                                          0

2-0489                                                      30.1.1

n/a                                                              11.2.1

n/a                                                              11.2.5

n/a                                                              12.7.1

 

Thanks in advance for your help
