Network Extender - failure to establish initial connection
mefree
Member

My Samsung SCS-2U01 has been working for at least 10 years.  The past 2 days I have lost my connection.  System LED is blinking red, which the manual says is: "Blinks red while establishing an initial network connection."  I unplugged and restarted twice. The external antenna has not been moved.  How do I even know the Verizon network system is working?  What else can I try? Who can I call?  thanks.  Mark

"That is the old 3G Network Extender and might need to be upgraded to the new 4G LTE Extender"

Good call!  That's what I did.

Could be the database associating your devices' MAC ID to your account got messed up.  You could try calling 800-922-0204 and asking for technical support to remove and re-add your extenders' MAC ID back onto your account.  I also had success calling 888-262-1999 and got technical support on the extender.

That is the old 3G Network Extender and might need to be upgraded to the new 4G LTE Extender.

mefree, 

 

I know how important it is to be able to stay connected, and I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your extender! Restarting is a great start, to troubleshooting any issues with your device. May I ask, is there any damage to the extender, or has anything happened to the device, that may have caused any changes in performance?

I thought I already replied to this.  A Verizon tech spent an hour on the phone with me.  Final solution - upgrade to LTE model.

I am sorry for the hassle this has caused. To confirm, are you now using the LTE model successfully? -Yale
