Once you have confirmed that there are no outages, you can now proceed with these steps. Please be advised that these steps involve working on the physical devices themselves so you will need to be on the location to do this. This should take around 15-20 minutes.

Before you proceed, most issues can be resolved by rebooting the modem and NBN box first. Make sure that you try to turn them off first for at least 2-3 minutes before turning them back on.

Please select your nbn connection type below:

FTTP
FW
FTTC

HFC
FTTN/B

Fibre to the Premise (FTTP)

1. Check the power light on the nbn box. You may need to remove the cover by pressing the two clips at the base upward, then pull the bottom of the cover out and up to remove it completely. Make sure that it is Green. If the light is Red or Off, check the power cable and make sure that it is properly inserted.

2. Next, check the Optical light. This is the indicator that the device is connected to the network. If the light is Red, you will need to contact us so we can lodge a fault. Please have the Serial number or the ALCL of the NTD ready as this will be needed when lodging a fault.

3. Check the UNID light. Make sure that this is on. If this is off, check if the Ethernet cable is properly connected to the UNID port. You might also try using a different cable to make sure it is not faulty.

If everything looks okay on the nbn box, the issue might be on the modem. Proceed to Checking the Modem.

Fixed Wireless (FW)

1. Make sure that the nbn box is on. The power light indicator should be Green. Check the cable and make sure that it is properly inserted. You can also test plugging in another device to make sure that the power outlet is able to provide power.

2. The Status light should be solid Green. If the light is Amber, it is in the process of booting up and you need to wait for it to finish. A Red indicator will mean that there is no connection and you will need to call us to lodge a fault.

3. Check the ODU light. This is also the indicator of the network connection. This should be colored Green to mean it is okay. If this is Red, we will need to lodge a fault.

If everything looks okay on the nbn box, the issue might be on the modem. Proceed to Checking the Modem.

Fibre to the Curb (FTTC)

1. Make sure that the nbn box is properly connected to the power outlet. The Power light indicator should be colored Blue. If it fails to turn on, please contact us to lodge a fault.

2. Check Connection light. If the light is Blue, it means that there is a connection to the nbn device on the pit. If it is Red or Off, try checking the telephone line if it is properly inserted to the wall socket and on the nbn box. If it is still the same, contact us to lodge a fault.

3. The same should be done to the DSL light. If the light is Blue, it means that there is a connection to the nbn network. If it is Off, check for any issues on the telephone cable. If it is still the same, contact us to lodge a fault.

4. Lastly, check the LAN light. A Blue or Amber indicator means that your router has been detected successfully by the nbn box. Otherwise, you might want to check for possible issues with the Ethernet cable. You can also test using another router.

If everything looks okay on the nbn box, the issue might be on the modem. Proceed to Checking the Modem.
