Chat Subject:FiOS Internet (Wireless Connectivity)
“An erratic internet connection. We often lose our internet connection, and are unable to send or receive email for a short period of time, usually daily. Do the routers ever need to be serviced or replaced? We’ve had ours for 5 years and only this past year have we begun to have connectivity problems.”
A Verizon Service Representative will be with you shortly. Thank you.

Srikanth(11:09:18): A very good morning to you Philip!
Philip Waring(11:09:39): You too, —how about my problem?
Srikanth(11:09:54): Thank you. I understand your concern. I will be glad to help you in this regard.
Srikanth(11:10:04): In case we need to follow up with you, may I have a preferred call back number ?
Philip Waring(11:10:18): The same one
Srikanth(11:10:28): Thank you.
May I know, since when you are facing the issue?
Philip Waring(11:12:26): It’s getting worse, perhaps over the past few months. Just this temporary loss of internet connection, not for long, maybe half hour or so, and I do as you suggest, turn the router off and on again, and yes this helps. But I don’t know why it our connection is interrupted and then comes back. Are these routers subject to problems after 5 or more years of service?
Srikanth(11:14:16): Philip, thanks for the information. Not to worry, I will do the best for you as we value you as a Verizon customer.
Srikanth(11:14:31): Please give me a minute. Let me check for the root cause of the issue.
Philip Waring(11:15:35): My present router is an Ultra line Series 3 Modell 9100 EM. Are these routers ever replaced?
Philip Waring(11:16:18): It’s a Westell SSID WM3KR
Srikanth(11:16:48): Philip, I have just checked with my supervisor and as you are privileged customer for Verizon I will fix the present issue and also send out a new upgraded router for you free of cost.
