How do I reset my Vodafone modem?

Where do I find my WPA key?
The WPA key is the case-sensitive password you need to access the wireless network that is broadcast from your Vodafone modem.
This password is located on the label on the back panel of your Vodafone modem.
Can I use my monitored alarm with Vodafone broadband?
In most cases, yes. The majority of newer monitored alarm systems use a GSM (SIM card) solution to connect to the monitoring station. They do not require a landline to communicate.
If your system still uses a landline, you can contact your alarm provider to upgrade to a GSM solution. This will enable the alarm to be monitored over the mobile network through the insertion of a SIM card, replacing the reliance on a landline.
Will I get a new landline number when I switch to Vodafone?
If you are switching from another service provider (e.g. eir) and staying in the same property, then you can keep your existing telephone number.
If you are switching to Vodafone as part of a house/property relocation, then you may get a new phone number if you move into a different phone code area. Your telephone number is allocated to a defined geographic area called a Minimum Numbering Area (MNA). Your MNA is part of a wider STD (Subscriber Trunk Dialling) area which has a defined dialling code.
For example the STD code for Dublin is 01 and there are 3 MNAs within the 01 Dublin area.
If you are moving from one address within your current MNA to another address within the MNA, then it should be possible to move your number, although there may be some exceptions to this for technical reasons.
If, however, you are moving from Dublin to Cork, then you will be moving from the 01 area (Dublin) to the 021 area (Cork), it will therefore not be possible to move your number to a different STD dialling code area.
I have my new modem, when will my broadband activate?
Once we activate your telephone line, it takes up to 15 working days for your broadband to go live (although the average time is only 10 working days). We'll notify you once it's active.
