Cox Business Outage Support

Troubleshoot service outages that may affect your business

Whether it’s severe storms, network maintenance, or other outage events, we know staying connected is critical for running your business.

Electricity is necessary to power your Cox Business equipment. If you experience a loss of power, your local utility provider must restore power before our technicians can start restoring your services. We’ll get you back up and running as soon as possible.

If you have electricity, and you’re still experiencing issues, the following troubleshooting tips may be useful.

Basic Troubleshooting


Check Physical Connection

Verify your devices are plugged into a working outlet instead of a power strip and all physical connections are attached and secured. Check to see that the power light is flashing.

Router Signal

Restart Your Devices

Unplug your devices from the outlet (preferred) or back of the equipment. Note: Do not press the reset button. Wait five minutes before plugging them back in. For digital receivers, once the clock activates, the reset is complete.


Reset Devices Within MyAccount

Reset your devices within MyAccount from the My Equipment section.  Click here to access MyAccount or download the app here.
