Our NBN was connected on March 1st. The tech said, "Wait a couple of hours then plug in the modem." Did that. The homepage of the modem says "You are connected to the internet" but the connection is obviously not activated as there is no internet access. Yep, I did the usual troubleshooting routine 😉
I called Optus on Friday 3rd; they weren't able to give me a clear answer why our service had not been activated, but promised they'd call with an update in two business days, but I've received no call. Our order tracking page shows no change either - service activation is still pending. I'm posting here because I'm hoping this issue can be resolved without me needing to spend more time on the phone. I'd really appreciate the help of an Optus support staff member. Many thanks.

Hey @DeeJaySchmeeJay, sorry for the issues and lack of communication. Shoot me a private message with your account number, full name and DOB so I can check up on this for you.
I'm in the same boat. Constant escalation to NBN resulting in another modem being sent. I don't know whether another modem is coming or whether this activation will work its way through. I had an NBN connection previously so I don't know why they are having trouble just 'activating' it. Why raise an escalation and an NBN technician?
I have been trying to install a vpn on my optus sagemon router/modem and spoke to 9 people and they have all been a waste of time and money, Their excuse is that we normally dont have people ask me how to do this. I dont care you are representing OPTUS and you need to know what you are doing and protecting your customers who have multiple smart devices.
OPTUS wake up your uneducated staff.
What assistance do you need, lecan? VPN is a third party self-installation, you may just need your router's username and password which is on your device / fridge magnet it came with?
I am very aware that vpn is a 3rd party software. I just wanted for someone to tell me what do I need to do to the Router to have that installed on it so ALL my smart devices are protected from hackers e.g baby monitor, front door and a few others. Optus does not provide security for smart homes. I am using nordvpn you can put that on your phones,tablets, etc also routers to protect your other smart devices, You cannot put the vpn on your fridge, baby monitor etc
