Hi there,

Recently (legitimately 48h ago) I have gotten wifi with Fizz after listening to my sister who loved them so much, but I'm really not a satisfied customer at all,

The wifi simply doesn't work? It has worked for 3 hours stretches per day and then disappears,

The customer service is non-existant, the green bubble won't appear today and I messaged them on Fb, no answer, of no phone number :(,

I keep rebooting the modem is all imaginables ways, but nothing, the power icon as well as the first two icons are on (an arrow pointing up and another arrow pointing down), and the physical power button (also two arrows) is orange,

Has anyone encountered that? :/ I understand that this might be an issue with the building and not Fizz, but the technician said everything worked well. I am also in dead center Montreal, the infrastructure is there.

    Hello Rmtl,

    I am sorry to hear about this situation.
    I just verified your connection and the modem is offline at the moment.  
    Please test it using a different electrical outlet.
    Also, please make sure the coaxial cable was not damaged in any way.

    Hi @Rmtl

    If you have problem with the wifi, since you are in high populated zone, I will suggest to change the wifi channel

    You can also try to disable the band steering

    Your Fizz Wi-Fi modem uses by default the to frequency band steering technology. When this function is disabled, the Wi-Fi modem will display two (2) frequency bands, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. 

     

    The modification of this option is possible thanks to the mobile application Fizz Wi-Fi:

    1. Choose: ''My Wi-Fi''
    2. Select your Wi-Fi network
    3. Select: ''Advanced Settings''
    4. Band Steering ''On/Off''

     

     The Fizz Wi-Fi app is available for free at various online stores (Apple Store and Google Play Store).

     

    This change can also be applied through the Wi-Fi modem user interface:

     

    1. Log in at: 192.168.0.1 from the web browser of any device.

    2. Log in using the following information:

    Username: cusadmin

    Password: xxxxxxxx (Password you chose during initial setup)

     

    3. Go to the next section to apply changes:

    Wireless → General Settings → 5GHz → Band Steering (Disable)



    A series of channels are available on each frequency (2.4 and 5 GHz) of your Wi-Fi modem. Interference can have an impact on these channels.

    Manually changing the channels used for your Wi-Fi connection can improve your modem’s signal. 


    There are two ways to manually change Wi-Fi channels.


    Option 1: With the Fizz Wi-Fi app.


    1. Once in the app, choose My Wi-Fi.

    2. Select your Wi-Fi network.

    3. Select Advanced settings.

    4. You’ll see Wi-Fi 2.4 and Wi-Fi 5. Select a different channel for each frequency.
