Faults – First Line Checks
If you are experiencing connectivity issues, please ensure you contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) directly, who will conduct a first line check for any faults.
If these first line checks are not carried out correctly and Mitsol is called out to investigate the fault, the ISP will be charged a call out fee, which they may pass on to you, the customer.
Troubleshooting prior to contacting your ISP (Internet Service Provider)
Is there power to your device? Are there any green lights showing up on the device?
Yes – Contact your ISP for them to conduct first line checks.
No – Check that the ONT (Optical Network Terminal) power button, located on the bottom of the unit, is pressed in and check that the power cable is securely plugged into the ONT and wall outlet. Please also check that the wall outlet is working by testing another device, such as your router or a phone charger. If the wall outlet has power then the power supply to the white Huawei ONT has been damaged by an electrical surge, and needs replacing. You can contact your ISP to inform them of this.
Characteristics of a good, functional ONT is as follows:
Power – Solid Green
LAN – Solid Green or Flashing Green
PON – Solid Green
