Internet

Verify the basic configuration is set correctly.

  1. All cables are securely fastened into the router, power injector, and the power is securely plugged into the wall or surge protector.
  2. Ensure correct configuration. Cable from the outside radio is plugged into the POE slot on the power injector or the 24V POE OUT slot on the AirCube router if you are using our router.
  3. Verify the status indicator light on the power injector or the Aircube. If it is solid white that indicates no issues with the power injector or AirCube Router exists. If flashing could indicate a problem
  4. Ensure there are no line of sight obstructions for your radio. The service relies on Line of Sight to the tower and things like Campers/RVs, newly constructed buildings, trees, etc can potentially cause issues.
  5. Ensure the cable coming into your residence has not been damaged due to landscaping or other mechanical damage. Ensure cable is not kinked or has been damaged by any other means.

Perform Basic Troubleshooting

Please see below for router troubleshooting:

  1. Power Cycle Router – Unplug the power from the router and leave it unplugged for 15-30 seconds.
  2. Verify Status Lights Nearly all routers come with status indicator lights to indicate if a problem exists. In the event that you are unsure what each light on your specific model of router means refer to router documentation.
  3. Power Cycle the Radio Unplug the power injector from the outlet that it is plugged into for approximately 30 seconds. If the status indication light is red light after plugging the radio back in, this could indicate a problem with the delivery of power. A flashing light indicates the cable is either shorted or damaged. If the status light is solid white this indicates communication and power delivery to the router is normal.
  4. Bypass the Router By bypassing the router and directly connecting to the power injector via the WAN slot/Ethernet this gives whatever device you are using a 1 to 1 direct connection and will eliminate any possible home-network related problems. If the connected device has internet access this indicates an issue with the router. If you have no internet still directly connected in this configuration give our office a call.

After completing these steps please contact our office at (509) 895 – 9600 to speak with a Technician if a problem still exists.

** NOTE DO NOT PRESS THE RESET BUTTON ON THE AIRCUBE ROUTER IF EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS. IF YOU PRESS THE RESET BUTTON THE ROUTER WILL CEASE TO PROVIDE POWER TO THE RADIO AND A TECHNICIAN WILL BE REQUIRED TO RECONFIGURE YOUR ROUTER. THIS MAY INCUR A COST ASSOCIATED WITH THE LABOR TO PROGRAM THE ROUTER AGAIN**

At Advanced Internet we do not have any data caps or hard/soft limits on the amount of data you use. We deliver a constant flow of internet to your residence or business for you to use as you see fit.

One of the biggest contributors to slow or buffering internet is high usage by other devices on the network performing background downloads (Video game consoles performing game updates, etc). If experiencing slow or sluggish connections verify no other devices on the network are performing background downloads.

If multiple devices are actively being utilized it is possible that your bandwidth usage exceeds the package you are subscribed to. Feel free to reach out our office and a technician can investigate any usage concerns.

If none of the above apply to you, directly connect to the WAN port on the power injector using an ethernet connection to a laptop, desktop PC, or a console and perform a speed test. This will give you a direct connection to our equipment and tower to determine if the issue is related to any home network usage or a problem originating from our end.

When investigating speed related issues we recommend using speedtest.net or fast.com
