We are currently having trouble with the wifi cutting constantly since last week in Montreal. Could it be due to the fires? When should we hope to have a stable wifi network? We have tried resetting the modem and everything, however, that has not solved the issue.

Thank you for your help.

    Hi @SamBern

    No should not be due to the fires.

    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.
    • Check your cables and connections: Make sure all cables are securely connected and not damaged. Replace any damaged cables.

    No, the recent forest fires do not interfere with the WiFi in your living spaces.

    You may want to : 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.

    Test each of the two (2) frequency bands of your Wi-Fi modem sometimes band steering can cause some issues.

    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.

    Check if your modem reboots (up time).
