Hi @eigramph 

 

I got your PM thanks. Your service is showing on line for the last 3 days. Is this your new modem currently connected to the line?

No, it still the old modem. I tried to connect the new modem but there's no internet even if I attached a cable directly to my laptop. We cannot even for a day to have no internet because I'm working from home so I connected back the old modem.

Hi @eigramph 

 

Do you want to try connecting your new modem and I'll check to see what it is doing on our end?

What was the reason for replacing your original modem?

The old modem was already 8 years old and without a wifi booster, we can't maximise the use of internet due to super slow and weak sginal. I was hoping that witht he new modem, it would be better even without wifi booster. 

 

We can't do it at the moment as I'm currently working. Can we do it later after office hours?

Hi @eigramph 

 

8 years is a long time to have a modem, it has done well to last that long.

 

I can request for someone to give you a callback after hours. What time did you have in mind?

Karl
