Can't connect to the internet

Factors affecting Mobile Broadband connection issue:

  1. Network

  2. Sim card

  3. Device

If you’re having issues with the connection, try to turn off the device for at least 3 minutes to reset the connection. Check if the SIM card is inserted correctly and fits to the SIM card tray. Turn ON the device and check the connection. If the issue persists, try to insert the SIM card to a data capable device like a smartphone or a tablet to determine whether it's a device issue or not.

If everything has been checked, and the issue persists, press and hold the reset button on your modem to restore its factory default settings. If the issue won't fix on the first attempt, contact us for further assistance to avoid damaging the modem.

Getting a slow connection

High Speed is a variable speed and would depend on the Optus 4G network, which works similarly with mobile. However, if the speed is unbearably slow, check out the steps below.

  1. Confirm all devices are affected.
    Observe the connection in the morning, afternoon or evening as it might be a network congestion affecting your speed.

  2. Review Modem Settings.
    Note: Our devices are plug and play. When the SIM card is inserted correctly, the necessary settings will automatically configure and establish a connection. If needed, you may try the steps below in setting up the APN.

Modem Settings

Once done, make sure your device is getting signal bars. Try other areas other than your home location as the issue may be location specific

If everything has been checked, and there's no improvement with the speed, press and hold the reset button on your modem to restore its factory default settings. If the issue won't fix on the first attempt, contact us for further assistance to avoid damaging the modem.
