Whilst trying to resolve our poor wifi strength I unplugged the ADSL/Phone line from the wall socket disconnecting the internet from our modem. When I reconnected it, the internet signal had been completely lost. I reset the modem to factory default settings, which has not helped. My computer connects to the WiFi, however, the modem does not connect to the internet. Everything is properly plugged in and nothing has been damaged. Can you please tell me how to resolve this issue as soon as possible, so we can have internet connection soon?
Thank you and I look forward to your speedy reply.
It's very unlikely that the modem or the cable got damage when you unplug it.
Well let's start with your modem. What's your modem and what kind of internet do you have "adsl or NBN"?
And also which light on the modem are on and solid?
Hi 2fly, thanks for responding.
We have a TP-Link Archer D7 (ADSL2+).
The only lights on the modem which are solid are:
- Power; and
- Wireless (Computer can connect to router but does not receive internet).
The other lights are not coming on at all (i.e they are not flashing).
I reset the modem to factory default settings, which has not helped. My computer connects to the WiFi, however, the modem does not connect to the internet.
Resetting your modem to factory settings will cause it to lose its TPG ADSL2+ service connection settings.
You need to input those settings into your modem again.
General settings for TPG ADSL2+ service can be found here:
There's also a Community article for a general guide in setting up your modem:
You may also need to download the instruction manual for your specific modem on the web for a more detailed guide.
