The lights on your nbn™ Connection Box tell you about the status of your connection.

If you have an HFC nbn connection, the lights on your box will look like this:

  • When it starts up, each light should flash as the nbn Connection Box connects to the nbn network.
  • Once it’s connected, all lights should go green.

What the different light combinations mean:
