Frequent questions

Do I need a fibre connection?

Yes. Our Nokia Beacons only work with a fibre connection. If you don’t have fibre at your place, we recommend getting it installed if available in your area.

For ADSL or VDSL connections, we can provide you with a standard NetComm modem (NF18ACV) or you can choose to use your own equipment if it’s compatible with our network.
Can I use my own router?

How many LAN ports are on the Nokia Beacon 2?

There is one LAN port available on each Beacon. It can be used to directly connect a device via Ethernet cable for faster performance. If you need to connect multiple devices via ethernet, you might like to consider purchasing a multi-port switch.

Why is a mesh system better than a range extender or repeater?

WiFi extenders and repeaters can help extend your wireless connection, but they do so in slightly different ways and can create new issues.

A repeater rebroadcasts your signal by creating a new network connection that you need to join in different areas of your home. While that can increase WiFi coverage, it also reduces bandwidth of your original network and becomes a hassle when moving around your home.

An extender, on the other hand, does not create a new network, but instead connects to your network via cable. Using a wired connection won’t impact your WiFi bandwidth but can be a problem if you don’t want to install cabling throughout your home.

We recommend a mesh system, like our Nokia Beacons, which extend WiFi connectivity by using multiple nodes that work together to create one giant network. This provides the best of both worlds, seamless wireless coverage and better overall performance.

Can I choose my own WiFi network name and password?

If you’re using our Nokia Beacons, a default SSID and WiFi key is displayed on the base of the Beacon connected to your fibre ONT. You can easily change these credentials by logging into the Nova Hub at novaenergy.co.nz or using the Nova Hub app.

If you are using our NetComm NF18ACV modem, you’ll need to call us on 07 306 2700 (or 0800 668 236). We can reset the SSID and password to something of your choice.

What do the LED colours on the Nokia Beacon mean?

Blue – network connection is good.

White – the unit is booting up. The light may pulse while establishing connection.

Red – no connection to the internet. The light may pulse during factory reset or connecting.

Yellow – link quality to the main router Beacon is poor. Move the Beacon closer to the main router Beacon.

Do I get to keep the Nokia Beacons?

The Nokia Beacons are available for you to use while you have your broadband service with us. If you decide to end your broadband service, we will ask you to return our equipment in good working condition.

Please note a $15 delivery fee applies when we send you our equipment. There is no charge to return our equipment.

If you end your broadband service and do not return our equipment within 30 days (or return it damaged), we may charge you a $99 equipment fee per Beacon.

What happens if I don’t return the Beacons?

If you end your broadband service and fail to return our equipment within 30 days (or return it damaged), we may charge you a $99 equipment fee per Beacon.
