2  Service Providers / Satellite Internet - Europe / Re: Used Via-Sat find provider blocking it

These modems are individually programmed/encoded to the service provider/reseller and customer account and purchase via ebay, amazon etc is not advised as they are regarded as unuseable.

You could try contacting a local reseller and asking, but you may not be successful, particularly if you have got a unit originally used in say North America and are trying to use it in Europe. Tell them the full model, serial and MAC numbers details of all the items you have.

Tell us how you get on. Good luck to you...

Hi,

Just bought from eBay a viaSAT RM4-100, it seems is blocked by a provider, is there a way to find which provider has this block?
I would like to call the provider and negotiate the unblock of the device.

The MAC is: 00:A0:BC:49:64:A0

Someone has asked me:

I have an X1 modem whose RX, NET and TX lamps flash at the same time in green. The 1.8 m antenna is well aligned on xx in a site with latitude xx and longitude xx. The RG6 cables are good quality and measure 30 m. The power supply is stabilized and the temperature is below 50 ° C. This modem has worked well for over a year before, and suddenly this change took place. What can be the cause? The down C/B varies continuously between 12 and 6 dB, while the Tx Pwr is -24 dBm.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Best regards, Eric.
