Smart Modem Wifi - Device Auto Connect

Yesterday installed Canle Internet and the Telstra Smart Modem. Connected IPhone to the wifi and all works well. Go to work and return home and the phone doesn’t automatically connect to Wifi. Select Settings in phone and it’s always the smart modem and shuts away and returns message “Not Connected Internet”
Turn modem off, reboots, green light displayed and WIFI connection now works. Been the case for my wife as well and so what modem setting need to be adjusted so I don’t have to reboot every time I walk out to the garden and lose the Wifi signal
