Re: Internet lights in modem off

If you plug the modem in and power it up, then Optus should be able to see it from their end. 


If they can't see your modem then request a replacement modem.


Alternatively request a technician via livechat.

Sorry to hear your new service isn't up and running. It sounds like the best department to assist will be the Pre-Activation team. If you jump into Live Chat here and go Broadband > Track Your Order, this will connect you with their team and they can raise a case to get your activation completed.
