Reset your nbn™ Connection Box and modem
To reset your nbn™ connection Box:
First, turn off the power to your connection box by unplugging it from the wall power outlet
Next, remove the power cable from your connection box and wait 2 minutes.
Reconnect the cable and turn the power back on.
After about 1-2 minutes, you should see some lights:
Power - Solid green
Optical - Solid or flashing green
Alarm - Solid green
Uni-D - Off, amber, or green
A wi-fi issue
Try connecting directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable. If this works, it may indicate a wi-fi issue, see our wi-fi speed and connection issues for more help and advice.
Try another browser
Close your internet browser entirely and open a new one as sometimes the program you are using to access the internet has encountered an error.
If you’re using wi-fi, try disconnecting from the network and then reconnecting. This should re-establish your connection to the modem.
