What to do if there’s a network outage
In this case, Cox is aware of the outage and is working hard to restore your service, so don’t worry about trying to contact us.
Here are some helpful tips while the outage is being resolved:
Do not reset or reboot your equipment—this may cause additional problems.
What to do if there’s not a network outage
If you don’t see an outage alert in My Account or the Cox app, your service disruption may not be caused by a network outage. In that case, you can turn to SmartHelp for more automated troubleshooting assistance or try these potential solutions.
Check your devices for connectivity. Then try rebooting your personal device, and if that doesn’t work, try rebooting your gateway.
Secure the cables and cords connected between your equipment, devices and walls, and test that outlets are working and a fuse hasn’t blown.
Make sure your gateway is located properly. Ideally it should be in a central location, at a heigh of 3 feet or above.
If your TV or phone isn’t working, make sure your TV is on the right input & your cordless phone batteries are charged.
