Turning off your modem refreshes the modem settings, and fixes a large percentage of issues, including no connection, slow speeds, or intermittent services. This is known as "restarting" or rebooting a modem.

Sometimes we may ask you to reset your modem. This is different from rebooting or power cycling, and you should only reset your modem if you are instructed to do so by a MyRepublic team member.

Notes before resetting
  • A reset will remove any changes you have made to the settings on your modem, including Wi-Fi password changes.
  • If you are using a mobile phone, its always best switch to 4g before the reset to avoid any service disruptions.
  • If you're using your own modem (BYO), you may follow the guides under this link or contact the manufacturer for more details.
