Greetings.

 

VF recently upgraded my ADSL service to VDSL. Sent out new VDSL modem and now my Sure Signal doesn't seem so sure now. The indicator lights show me that the Sure Signal device is boosting my mobile signal but the end result is as if it was not working at all.

 

Is it possible that the SS device is not compatable with the VDSL modem?

 

It was connected as per the modem install instructions. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

Hi @Forklifttech

 

Of course the Sure Signal is compatible with the new VDSL modem (If it's the one Vodafone provided) it has to be something else

 

You don't mention what type of handset you have got

 

When you do a voice call does the phone on the front of the Sure Signal unit light up?

Do a speed test on your connection + post VDSL line stats.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Greetings again team.
The handset I am using is a Sony Xperia XZ and my partner is using a Galaxy core prime.
The house is due to be connected to fibre at the end of the month.
The phone indicator light on the SS does show up when the phone is being used but the dead spots in the house have returned to pre SS. All this has occurred since the new modem was installed.
I am thinking that I might wait till the fibre is up and running hopefully that will solve the issue. In the meantime I will go back to the beginning and reinstall the modem and the SS and post the results.
Thanks.

Could it be that the new modem or its PSU is throwing out some RFI that is upsetting the receivers in the SS, purhaps try seperate them a few meters.

Different multi board or plugtop. Doubt it will be that however.
I assume it will be like when you get your car back from the mechanics and you hear all these noises you havnt before.

I am not overly familiar with the Suresignals setup, but I assume it uses DHCP to gain network access, if not purhaps its on a different subnet to the new modems lan and therefore lost in an IP blackhole.

Greetings team.

 

I have conducted a speed test as sugessted and the resuluts are; DL=54.77mbs. UP 27.06 mbs. This test was done wireless as the laptop doesn't have an ethernet port.

 

I reset the SS and I now seem to have all bars present on the phone in usual dead spots in the house.

 

Hopefully the reset was what the problem was.

 

Thanks again everyone.

Reset was going to be my next suggestion. Speed test is good for running SureSignal.
