Nighthawk M2

I have had a Nighthawk router for three months.  It is connected to my computer via Ethernet and works well BUT it is not sending out any wifi signal.  I cannot even turn it off to reboot it.  The power switch does nothing when pressed and held.  What can i do?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

There are several ways to reset the modem. See page 79 and 80 of the manual

I took the battery out for a minute and it seems to have helped.

Maybe faulty or have corrupted firmware [try updating manually via a connected pc [web address 192.168.1.1 if you have a factory config as delivered from telstra]

make sure you are not using IP passthrough [disables wifi] but is the fastest ethernet routed solution if you dont need wifi

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
