NBN Telstra Smart Modem Disconnet and reconnect.

Tomorrow I will have an electrician doing some work in the house.

He will disconnect all power in the house.

When finished he will reconnect the power again.

But what happens to my Smart Modem Gen2. Will it start up again?

Please tell me.

 

Regards

Re: NBN Telstra Smart Modem Disconnet and reconnect.

The modem should start and connect to internet automatically. Suggest you unplug modem from power point before electrician cuts of power and plug back in once power is restored, this will prevent any possible power surges damaging modem. If you have an NDN NTD also turn of power on the NBN NTD.

what is  an NDN NTD also turn of power on the NBN NTD.??

I have an box outside on the wall and then there is a box inside connected to the outside that runs with a cable to toe Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2

Id that it?

As I was told, ALL electricity in the house will be turned off.

I am worried that if the power is reconnected that my Smart Modem will start up again.

NB.

But before it is turned off I will disconnect all devices first and then reconnect when power has been restored.

Yes the box inside the house that the Telstra modem is connected to is the NBN NTD.

 

The modem will power up and reconnect once power is restored to modem.

 

Disconnecting all devices before power is turned off is a good idea.

Thank you for giving me peace of mind..

 

The electrician will be here to do:

 

1) replace a faulty wall light switch.

2) replace a bulb where the glass came of its socket and is stuck in a very uncomfortable position.

3) reattach a double power point that came loose from the wall and the in the wall screw plugs have to be replaced.

 

I am capable to do many things but I am a not favoring to do jobs that involves electricity.

It is a long time ago but I have seen somebody getting killed by doing a job like the above.
