Smart Home doesn't recognize new Fiber modem

How do I get my Smart Home Mgr to recognize the new Fiber modem?

I have re-started the modem twice.

Uninstalled & re-installed the Smart Home App 3 xs.

I am at a loss.

The message I get is "Can't reach your Wi-Fi gateway."

Hi Cwag527, we can help you connect your gateway to the Smart Home Manager!

 

We see that you tried restarting the gateway. Have you tried a factory reset?

 

If not, give that a try and let us know if it helped. Find the small red button and pinhole on the lower rear of the gateway and depress for about 15 seconds.

 

If that doesn't help, please provide more information, so we can determine what your next steps should be:

  • When did you receive the new gateway?
  • Was the gateway sent as a replacement?
  • Are you a new customer or did you recently upgrade to Fiber?

We'll be awaiting your response!

I haven’t done a hard reset, but will tonight.

I did just upgrade to fiber, last week.

We'll be here when you're ready, @Cwag527.

 

Please let us know if the factory reset works, and we'll continue working on this together.

I reset the modem and Smart Home still doesn't recognize it.

I did delete and reinstall SmartHome before I tried again.

Also, on the "Main WIFI" tab of SmartHome, it won't let me Edit and change the SSID

to the new fiber modem.

I’ve had that error for weeks now. Just delete the smarthome manager app.

I have deleted it about 6 xs. And did a restart on the modem.  Could it not be recognizing the new modem because they haven’t buried the cable yet??? I’m just guessing anything now

No. It’s the app. Delete it.
