Hi

 

Please take a look through these Sure Signal Trouble Shooting threads :

 

https://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Vodafone-Sure-Signal/Vodafone-Sure-Signal-troubleshooting/td-p/23917...

as these may help to resolve issues. They have links to the key things you can do to try and self resolve the issue you are experiencing.

 

One of the links is named "Issue Not Listed" which guides on how to run a traceroute and post your results back here for the team to check out. 

 

Please Note : If the Sure Signal displays ANY signs of internal failure then unplug it straightaway and contact Vodafone Customer Services. 

 

It may also be worth trying a different power supply with the SureSignal (Version 1 & 2 ), as there have been some reports of replacement power supplies solving the issues. Even if lights / power are showing. They are available on eBay for around £10.

 

From member cineriv "But firstly, have a look around for a suitable unit with a 12 Volt output @ around 1.5Amp capacity that you could 'borrow' to prove the fault. Suitable units can be found on external hard drives, monitors, printers, routers etc.etc."

Thanks for prompt reply. I am still waiting for this to work. I still have 2 lights flashing steady together. Any idea when this will be resolved?

I've checked and can see that your Sure Signal connected to our servers this morning. Is everything running smoothly for you now?

I have a similar problem. Second sure signal that we've had in less than nine months and it's stopped working. Can't help thinking that the technology is not very durable...will be looking for a free replacement as I can just see I will spend hours of time "troubleshooting" to no avail...

We've checked your Sure Signal again this morning, and it does appear to be updating on our servers.

 

I'd recommend following the advice @BandOfBrothers provided to try a new Ethernet cable.

Hi @gillstapley

 

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. 

 

I've checked and can see that your Sure Signal connected with us yesterday. 

 

Are you still having issues with it?

 

If so, please could you try a different Ethernet cable as suggested by @BandOfBrothers ? 

 

Also, could you please clarify which lights are flashing? Is the power light stable and the next two (internet and service) flashing or is it the power light and then the internet light?

 

Thanks,
