New NBN install - upstream light flashing

I had my HCF NBN installed last Thursday. It wasn't working when the technician left. He said another technician would come out. Now I have no idea when he will be back, and there is no chance of getting through on the phones at the moment.

When I plug everything in, and turn it on, I get solid green lights on power and downstream, but the upstream flashes and connected light does not come on.

I get the blue light on the modem.

Any ideas if I can do anything to make it work, or do I have to hope a technician will come back?

Was this helpful?

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

No. It will require the technician as it can't find an upstream channel.

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