My wifi modem mobile signal has been on orange now for abot 3 weeks. Have seen Telstra at Edwardstown SA and they told me there is a problem. Plus slow internet 

Was this helpful?

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

Re: Wifi

The Orange Mobile light indicates the strength of the received backup 4G signal. The 4G backup is throttled to 6 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. Even if modem is in 4G backup you should still be able to attain these speeds. If modem is normal mode (front light green Gen 2 modem or Online light green Gen 1 and 1.1 modem) the Orange light will not cause a reduction in speed.


What type of connection do you have (ADSL, FTTN. FTTC etc) and what speed are you getting?

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
