My Optus Sagemcom ADSL modem keeps losing connection.
It will work perfectly for a while but then suddendly I am unable to access anything on the internet even though the modem lights still say its connected are are flashing like there's a whole heap of data going through. Often if I turn off all devices, the lights are still flashing but nothing is connected.
Weirdly, when then I restart the modem its magically all fine again. Only problem is this happens several times in a day and is very frustrating.
I have tested on phone and iPad over Wifi and PC and TV connected directly via cable, and when the issue occurs no devices access anything - just progress wheel until it times out. I have also reset the modem and changed my Wifi password but nothing has fixed it so far.
Is there a way I can find out if it's a fault with the modem, a configuration issue, or a problem with the network?

Hey Miki - very sorry for the delayed reply. If you're still needing a hand, would recommend touching base with Tech Support on 131344.
Hi, I am having the same problem as you. I have changed a modem - initially they said it was the modem problem. Got a new modem and now am having this problem again. Did they send you a technician to your place to check the connection?
Hi @BN_Lee, sorry for the delay with our response. I can completely understand the frustration you'd be facing with the second modem.
This could potentially be a fault with the device or maybe even a network issue, but we would need to open an investigation with our Tech Support team to get a more definite answer, they can be contacted via Live Chat here. Alternatively, they can be reached on the phone by calling 131344.
In the meanwhile, if you have any issues, please let me know.
All wifi functionality on my Optus Sagemcom modem now gone! So much for a wifi modem!
Modem constantly resetting.
How can I get in touch with Optus tech support?
I have a Sagemcom F@st3864OP modem which is playing up. For a number of days the wifi functionality completely stopped. Then the modem of its own accord kept rebooting, turning on and off and then the power light would not come on. This meant that we then had no home phone and could not call up tech support. I called on my mobile and was twice disconnected. My son called on his mobile and was twice disconnected after waiting over half an hour.
I tried rebooting the modem, did factory resets, turned on and off and it made no difference.
Can you please arrange for a replacement modem for me?
Hey @Coalfalls, we'll first need to establish that it is an issue with the modem and not a networking issue before we consider a replacement. Have you had any luck reaching out to Tech Support over live chat? You can access this service on your smartphone. They would be the best point of contact to establish the cause of the problem here.
