Re: Telstra TG799vac starts up then fails

Try following the steps in this link, I had a very similar issue & had to do the reset thing with cables unplugged to get it to stop & start working properly. They must be followed exactly though as if it doesn't reset properly it won't work & the cables MUST BE UNPLUGGED...
