Telstra tv dropped out of internet

I just installed the Gen2 modem today, and I connected immediately to wifi, but not the internet. Waited a while it then connected. This is through my telstra TV. I was then watching Utube and the internet dropped out. I had also lost connection to the internet on my iPad at the same time. I thought there was a backup that prevented this. My old modem never did this on telstra tv.

Was this helpful?

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

Re: Telstra tv dropped out of internet

There is a 4G backup that should prevent you losing the internet but it takes about 4 minutes to detect a fault and then switch to 4G backup. The 4G backup will only work if there is good 4G coverage at your location.


What colour are the Mobile Signal, WAN / DSL and Online lights on the back of the modem.

What model modem do you have (LH1000 or DJA0231)? What type off connection do you have?

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
