IF YOU ARE HAVING INTERNET AND/OR PHONE ISSUES
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
STEP ONE –
Do not “reset” your router which has been especially configured by CLT for your specific installation. Reverting to a factory setting may incur a $20 (plus HST) service call. (Some routers have a red sticker applied over the reset button to warn against touching this reset button.)
STEP TWO –
Try power cycling (turning power off and on) to “reboot” (i.e. “restart”, NOT “reset”) your modem, router or modem/router. Then, if you have wireless CLT internet service from your house to a CLT tower, you should also power cycle the Power Over Ethernet (POE) power supply device to reboot the outside radio. This is done from inside the house. Finally, customers with CLT phone service will also need to power cycle to reboot the telephone adapter. You should power cycle all your devices. Instructions for power cycling each device are as follows: Modem, Router, or Modem/Router: Unplug your labelled modem, router or modem/router from the house power, wait 30 seconds, and then plug it in. Ensure the power plug is fully inserted. It will take a couple of minutes to restart. This POE is typically a little black box with a single white or green light on it. One end of the box has two (network) cables. Do not remove them but ensure they are firmly connected to the box. The other end of the POE black box has the usual house electrical cord and power plug. Unplug this electrical power plug from the house power, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. Ensure the power plug is fully inserted. Telephone Adapter: If you are having phone problems and subscribe to the CLT phone service, you have a separate small box labelled “telephone adapter”. This adapter connects to your router to provide telephone service. This phone adapter has its own power supply. Reboot the phone adapter by unplugging its power supply from the house power wall socket, wait 30 seconds, and then plug it back in. Ensure the power plug is fully inserted.
STEP THREE –
If power cycling to “reboot” fails, contact CLT. Please note that if a service call is required and the problem is not due to service provided by CLT there will be a $20.00 service charge.
