Your modem is using an older method to connect to TDS internet. TDS is making a change that will no longer allow this type of connection. You will need to change your modem settings to stay connected.  Please take the following steps to avoid a service interruption.

If you are using an Actiontec modem supplied by TDS, locate the "reset" button on the back. You will need to use either a toothpick or a paperclip to press it.  Leave the modem turned on, press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.  This will reset your wireless network settings.

If you are using a 3rd-party modem:  Contact the manufacturer. You will need to change the "internet" or "WAN" connection type to DHCP.  

If you are using a non-Actiontec modem supplied by TDS, or are unsure of the modem type, please call TDS Repair at 1-888-225-5837.
