Unanswered question

My internet stopped working completely, how do I fix this?

I cannot connect to my Fizz wifi anymore. I tried unplugging the modem, and the factory reset which did not change anything. The modem seems to be working because the lights are on (see photo), but my wifi network does not appear in the list of networks I can connect to. I have been in this situation for 2 days and I am working from home so this is becoming urgent. Since there is no customer service I can talk to and I am paying for a service I am not getting I think my only option is to cancel my subscription if I don't find a solution quickly.

Hi Elodie

You must contact Fizz support. The orange ring light can be a sign the modem is not working properly and may need to be replaced.

Have you tried connecting via ethernet cable? If that works, you can use it for now.

You can contact Fizz customer support by chat:
1- Click on this link: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/none-my-devices-can-access-interne...
2- The green chat bubble with the ? should appear after a few seconds in the bottom right corner.
3- Click on it, and select chat if available, or any other option

Indeed, none of my device connect. I am a bit at loss as I don't seem to be able to reach the customer service. When I click on the chat option, nothing happens, only the forum and FAQ work (see video).

I cannot connect to an ethernet cable, as I am using a recent Macbook pro and I have no adapter. I am using my phone's data to write this, which is not the best.

Okay, this seems to be an antenna problem then.
Try to use your phone browser to connect to support.
On your desktop you could also try private mode or another browser. Sometimes the website is a bit buggy.

Does the wired connection work ?

*edit* just saw your reply seem you cannot test it. That would really be the first troubleshooting step, you could see if you have anything else with ethernet you can try with (a TV, console etc..)

StefanM, do you think the reason why you can connect to the chat is because you're connected to your Fizz internet? I cannot connect to the chat through computer or phone, that's odd.

Elodie

Yes it the chat option you want to select.

You can try with a different browser or clear your browser cache and try with a new tab in private mode. As suggested, you can also try with another device. You can also try restarting your device.

If it refuses to work, you can try with a different help page like: https://fizz.ca/fr/faq/comment-gerer-le-rendez-vous-avec-...

Or select the Messenger option to leave a message and they will reply as time permits.

I could connect to the chat by using Safari instead of Chrome. Thank you so much!

In the end a technician came to my home. The modem was simply broken and he changed it - it works now. Thank you everyone for your help
