Step 3) Restart your NBN™ Network Connection Device and modem

  • Turn off the electrical outlets for both devices and leave them off for at least 60 seconds.
  • Turn both outlets back on and wait for the NCD and modem lights to settle.
  • Attempt to view a website.
  • If your NCD status lights are unlit or red after rebooting, please call us on 13 22 58 for assistance.


Step 4) Check your home network

  • Attempt to view a website on other devices connected to your modem via WiFi or Ethernet cable
  • If your device is connected via WiFi, stand next to your modem to rule out any WiFi signal issues.
  • If you can view websites on devices connected via Ethernet cable but not on WiFi, switch to troubleshooting WiFi No Connection.
