Faulty modem, no response to email

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 3
Dear TPG,
I have emailed support 4 times over the last month, zero replies !!
My VR-1600v Modem does not longer output a 2.4 GHz WIFI signal.
No SSID is visible on various devices for the 2.4 GHz (both Apple and Android)
LED on the modem is ON for both 2.4G and 5G
In the modem setting both 2.4GHz and 5GHz are ENABLED
What I have done so far is:
- To disable the 2.4 and re-enabling again.
- Try different channel settings manually (1,6,11)
- Reboot the modem
- Factory hard reset (via pin in back of modem 10 sec.)
All with negative result.
Note that 5Ghz is working normally, also SSID is visible.
Please advice?
Thanks in advance,

Hi @gmustang


We've checked our inbox, but we can't seem to locate any messages coming from the email address that you mentioned that you used to send the emails out.


Are you able to send to other email addresses successfully? And how are you sending emails? Are you using an email program or do you simply login to Postoffice online?


As for the modem replacement, you will be notified of the consignment details once it's available.

Hi @gmustang


I'm not sure as to why we were not able to receive your emails. Did you get any bounce back messages that could perhaps explain it? Or you can send us screenshots of the messages you've sent so we can check why we're not able to receive your any of your emails. Just PM us the screenshots.

I'm using an email program at home, outlook. No nothing bounced,

Second time you are questioning if I sent those emails, I'm not making it up...


PM-ed  you the requested screen shot.


Could we please proceed now with replacing my modem?





Hi @gmustang


I'm sorry if you feel that we're questioning your claim. It wasn't our intention. We simply want to ensure that we won't miss any emails from you. We will deal with this internally.


Your replacement modem was already dispatched via Startrack. Please refer to the SMS that was sent to you earlier providing the consignment details.
