Sure Signal v2 resync

SOLVED

We have a Sure Signal v2, which hasn't been working for about a week. After trying various suggestions from the forums with no joy, it occurred that the problem seemed to start when BT Protect was accidentally enabled. Having disabled it, the Sure Signal has gone from having no lights showing to having both white lights flashing. Whilst messing about, we did a factory reset. Does the Sure Signal now need some action from the Vodafone end in order to get it working again?

 

traceroute shows that we can access the Vodafone network, and the various speed and performance tests show that network connectivity is good. For reference, the Sure Signal serial number is 40110424195.

 

Regards,

 

TreacleBob

Thanks for your reply. I tried your suggestions, but with no luck. Today, however, I worked out what the problem was. The Sure Signal was showing no lights at all - not even the connection light on the Ethernet socket. On checking the power supply, I found that it was putting out less than 1V, instead of the rated 12V. I've swapped this for a spare one of similar rating, and the Sure Signal is now up and running again. Maybe this will help others with a similar problem.

Thanks for the reply. Here's the requested information. The speed was measured from a wifi connected host, so it's somewhat slower than the wired connection that the Sure Signal has to the router.

I’ve re-synchronised the Sure Signal for you today. This can take up to 24 hours to connect.

 

If you’re still having problems after doing this, try changing the administrator to another number, remove your number and wait a few hours and then re-add it. You can then transfer them back into your name.

 

Thanks
