Trouble connecting smart lights with Arcadyan modem.

We got a Gen 2 Arcadyan modem a few months ago, after having a Gen 1 Technicolor modem. The new Gen 2 with the backup SIM did not allow us to connect Mirabella and Wiz smart lights, even after disabling 5 ghz. These lights only pair on 2.4 ghz. After months of trying, I finally got a genius technician at Telstra faults to figure out our modem was working on the IP address of the SIM rather th ask the modem. She remotely changed the IP address and restarted the modem from their end and happily all our smart lights now work and are able to connect to Google.

Re: Trouble connecting smart lights with Arcadyan modem.

Hi - I'm having the same issue with Wiz lights. Gone through troubleshooting with provider, then came across this post. 

I called Telstra - and referenced this post - however they weren't sure what I was talking about. 

I've since taken out the SimCard (which isn't to say it changed the IP address), reset the modem. Tried port forwarding. No luck.
