System light won't stay on

No internet. System light is off. I can reboot the modem and bring it back online but only momentarily as it will go back out again.

Re: System light won't stay on

Good morning mcoleman, 

 

I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! We can totally look into this for you. I pulled up your account and can't reach your modem remotely, which from your case notes and your post here is no surprise. 

 

Interesting that the internet comes back up temporarily after a reboot.

 

Please try powercycling the modem by unplugging the power cable from its power brick and waiting at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Do you still only temporarily get internet back?

 

Finally, please navigate to 192.168.0.1 in your browser to go to your System Control Center. This site is hosted on your modem, so no internet connection is needed. Click on the System Status light at the top of the screen.

 

On the next page, please let me know what your State Code is (it's a series of 3 numbers separated by periods, like 12.7.2 or 0.0.0), as well as the SQF. 

 

Let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to hearing back.

 

  Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks,
Liz

Re: System light won't stay on

Great!

 

I realize now that you won't find the term "SQF" in the System Control Center (SCC), instead look for "Satellite Receive Strength", I'll need the number next to that please. 

 

 

Thanks,
Liz

Re: System light won't stay on

Sorry, i didn't get your last message in time. The 2 codes it has set are 12.7.1 and 12.8.1 and the TCP Accel says fail. I'll check the signal strength tonight when I get home.

Re: System light won't stay on

I still just get the system light back temporarily and then I loose it again after powercycling. I'll get the signal strength number tonight.

Re: System light won't stay on

Signal strength is 68 and we powercycled it again with the same results of the system light eventualy going back out within 10 minutes.
