General Problem Solving

Being disconnected or getting connected:

1. My Wispernet internet service seems to be down, what do I do?

Please start by checking that everything is plugged in, Powered on and connected as it should be. There will be a cable running from the equipment mounted outside into the house. Follow that cable . That cable will be plugged into the POE port (P+) of a power over ethernet (POE) unit, this needs to be connected and powered on at the mains. A 3rd cable will run from the LAN port of the POE unit to a wireless router, network switch, laptop, desktop or VOIP telephone. In most cases when this cable is connected to a wireless router, it should be connected to the LAN ports of the router, not the WAN port. Please connect the POE unit’s power cord directly to the wall outlet, by-passing any multi-plugs.. Please also check the temprature of the POE unit, if it is cold or extremely hot you might have a faulty POE unit.

2. What does a POE unit look like?

There is a variety of POE units, but most have 3 jacks-2XRJ45 and 1xDC. They are usally black in colour and slightly larger than a box of matches. You can view a selection here.
