Check for an outage in your area
Currently, our outage checker is unavailable due to maintenance. In the meantime, we suggest using the options below to check for any network disruptions that may be affecting your service.
To find out if planned maintenance or an outage is affecting your nbn™ service, use the nbn network outages checker.
Check your cables
Locate your indoor NBN™ Network Connection Box and modem and ensure that they’re connected properly.
Make sure all the cables are in good condition and plugged in properly, without any kinks or any damage.
Check your nbn™ Connection Box lights
The different coloured lights on your connection box denote certain issues your service may be experiencing. Use our helpful table to identify what issues the lights indicate and how to resolve them.
Reset your nbn™ Connection Box and modem
To reset your connection box, follow this step-by-step article.
A Wi-Fi issue
Try connecting directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable. If this works, it may indicate a Wi-Fi issue, see our Wi-Fi troubleshooting for more help and advice.
Try another browser
Close your internet browser entirely and open a new one as sometimes the program you are using to access the internet has encountered an error.
If you’re using Wi-Fi, try disconnecting from the network and then reconnecting. This should re-establish your connection to the modem.
