When your Woosh modem dies, take the battery out

Spread the love

Last night, my Woosh Wireless broadband modem (an IPWireless P1D) went completely dead. My connection dropped, all the status lights went out, and there was no response at all when I hit the power button. I tried unplugging and replugging everything, but nothing happened.

As you may know, this modem has a battery and a SIM card slot very similar to a mobile phone. After I took the apparently dead battery out, everything worked fine.

Update: A rep from Woosh saw this article and sent me out a new battery. I didn’t even have to call!
