In order to make this process quicker, please ensure you have already done the below troubleshooting prior to contacting our support team to submit any request to the carrier.Level 1 Troubleshooting:
1. Unplug the Netgear LB1120 from power

3. Take device to another location (preferably closer/ better line of sight to serving tower)
4. Re-insert sim card after waiting 5 minutes
5. Plug device back into power
6. If lights come on green after waiting 3 minutes continue to step 7. If power indicator light stays amber color please conduct Level 2 Troubleshooting
7. Unplug connected Wireless router
8. Wait 30 seconds then plug wireless router back into power
9. Wait 2-3 minutes for wireless router to boot back up fully, and then re-connect any wireless enabled devices to wifi network
10. Check connectivity (You should be good to go)Level 2 Troubleshooting:

2. Sim card issues (Sim card not installed correctly
or sim card is scratched/ not readable)
