    Hello Xian W.,

    Sorry to hear about the issue.

    Try to first factory reset the modem then redo the installation process by following the details found here : and check if the issue persists, since we saw that there might be some driver issues with the device itself.

    Connect only 2-3 devices at most, test the connection for a few hours, and check how it performs.

    Reach our colleagues on Live chat : if the issue still persists for further investigations.

    Thank you for your understanding.
    Have a good one,

    If you are experiencing internet problems with Fizz, here are some suggestions to try and troubleshoot the issue:

    • Restart your modem and router: Sometimes simply unplugging your modem and router for a few minutes and then plugging them back in can fix connectivity issues.

    • Try to turn off the modem, unscrew the coaxial cable, wait 5 minutes, screw back the coaxial cable and power on.

    • Reset your network settings: Try resetting your network settings on your devices and reconnecting to your Wi-Fi network.

    • Contact Fizz support: If the above suggestions do not solve the problem, contact Fizz support for further assistance.

    IMPORTANT: This will reset any changes that have been made to your Wi-Fi modem settings to date. You may also need to reconfigure your devices’ Wi-Fi settings (network name, password, etc.).


    Using a small, sharp object, press the modem’s reset button for 10 seconds.

    Once your modem has restarted, follow the same instructions you used when you initially installed it.

    @Xian W. hello,

    Have you considered placing your modem in a central place away from any sources of interference including: nearby Wi-Fi networks, surveillance cameras, baby monitors, microwave ovens.

    Also consider eliminating any obstacles between your devices and the Wi-Fi waves coming from you modem (router) including: construction materials (concrete, aluminum, etc.), heated flooring, mirrors, windows.

    Also: you can test each of the two (2) frequency bands of your Wi-Fi modem sometimes band steering can cause some issues. Even disabling the band steering might help in some cases.

    Consider also: manually selecting different Wi-Fi channels on your modem

    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.

    I hope that solves your issues with: the intermittent lost connections.
