Hello ,

After the install procedure right before firmware update the connected modem needs rebooting . After this reboot the network adapter of my laptop stays in Limited or No Conectivity mode ( the modem does not assign DHCP  IP Adress ) . Now i cannot connect to my modem .
All modems leds are blinking simoultaneously and the error i get is "Fault Detected" .
I also used another laptop and the problem persists .
What alse can i do !
Thanks !

I had a similar issue when I connected up a router to the modem recently. My router had flood protection turned on. This is a form of denial of service style attack. I turned off the flood defences and my router received an IP without issue.

Do you have a firewall on the laptop that could be causing the same issue? The fact that you completed the install process confirms that the modem and laptop were initially talking to each other without issue. How long have you left it after the firmware upgrade? Upon initial setup my kit had a good 15 minute delay before coming to life.

Did you happen to pull the power on the router whilst it was upgrading its firmware? This may have caused an issue as well

Hello ,

I followed these steps :
1. I choose Blue beam
2. I finished install procedure
3. Modem requests reboot .
4. After reboot the network adapter of my laptop stays in Limited or no connectivity . In this moment i cannot connect to my modem .
All modems leds are blinking simoultaneously and the error i get is "Fault Detected"
I never reach to the firmware upgrade step .
I dont have firewall on my laptop .
I should received DHCP from modem but this does not happen .

Thanks !

May need to call your provider. I take it you've not been asked to enter the registration key and so on...

Had you tried to assign manually an ip in the range 192.168.100.2-254 and access to the modem at 192.168.100.1?

Hello, from memory, if all the LEDs are flashing, this indicates a fault either with the modem, the tria or the cable, but not with your laptop. If the LAN connection isn't working, it's just the bottom LED that flashes continually.
