Lost connection after recontracting

Message 19 of 19

I have had full fibre since February (transitioned from a service down the phone line). My contract ended in early April. On Friday I recontracted for 18 months. On Sunday morning at 6.30am my connection randomly stopped working and my router now just flashes orange. 

 

 

I've been passed around various agents who think it is a fault with city fibre (who run the fibre service in our street), but this seems far too coincidental not to be linked to the new contract I took on Friday. Especially as in the 'My Account' section of the website there is no reference anywhere to the new deal I signed up to. In the meantime I am just waiting for city fibre to call when I am pretty sure they'll say it has nothing to do with them. 

 

Any ideas?

OK, can you please update your community profile to include your:
 

  • Name
  • Telephone number
  • Alternative contact number

We'll then look into this further. Please do not post this information on this thread. Once you've updated your profile please post in your topic to confirm it's updated.
 

Thanks

Chris

OK thanks. Would you like me to arrange to send another router to test with?

Yes, I've done a couple of resets - leaving it off unplugged for 15 mins and then using a paper clip for the hard factory reset, neither have worked unfortunately. I also cannot connect to the router to look at the settings as it won't generate a wifi network.

Thanks for trying that, yes it does look as though it could be an issue with your router. Which router do you have?

Hi Chris, thanks for your response. I've only the one device with an ethernet socket (a smart TV), and didn't realise I could skip out the router but yes that is connected to the internet when I plug it directly into the ONT. 

 

What does that suggest a problem with the router?

 

Thanks very much for your help!

Hi timgray85,


Are you able to test with a device connected directly to the ONT with an Ethernet cable bypassing the router?

P.s. 3 of the 4 lights are on on the ONT, the one that is not lit is labelled ethernet. 

 

All cables etc. Have been checked and router has been reset.

Hi Michelle,

Yes I've been in contact with the fibre team. They have just raised an incident with city fibre (who I still haven't heard from, three days after first reporting the issue). I really can't help but think it has got something to do with the fact that I signed up to a new contract last Friday.

Hello,

 

I'm sorry to hear this. Can I just confirm, have you been in contact with our Future Fibre Team directly? What lights are on the ONT?

 

Thanks
