Telstra Smart ModemTM lights

Answered

I have a Telstra Smart Modem.

Lights are:

      Online = green = OK

      WAN/DSL = green = OK 

      Mobile mode = off

      Mobile signal = orange = OK reception, but not the best

      Phone = green = OK

 

Questions

1.  What does the "Mobile mode" mean?

2.  What happens if it's off

3.  What does it mean when its on (green)?

 

Why isn't this info easily accessible anywhere?

Re: Telstra Smart ModemTM lights

When Mobile Mode is On, it means that it is using the 4G(LTE) backup as the Landline Braodband connection (WAN/DSL) will be off. Under normal operating conditions Mobile Mode should be off.

 

You can see what the lights mean here.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
