DirecTV Status - November 2014
DirecTV is now established in our building and the kinks are being worked out.
If your current bill
is not correct, please call Amtech 1-888-680-5538.
Amtech should be called
when you want to add equipment to the account or if you are having a problem
with their receiver (1-888-680-5538).
If you have any issues or Amtech is non-responsive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, unit number and description of the problem(s).For some helpful videos on using DirecTV click here.
Internet Status - November 2014
Amtech has told us they have rebuilt the ET Internet backbone including:
- Installed new backbone equipment (Which included but not limited to amps, attenuators, band blocker, splitters, diplexers, etc.)
- Replaced old equipment as needed in condos
- Tested connections to ensure proper frequencies on DirecTV boxes and Cable modems for internet in each unit.
- Installed Wireless Access points in each unit. (except for units that did not want them to touch their equipment) There is a least 2.
Passwords for Internet: Some owners have not contacted Amtech for a password, so Amtech has assigned one for them. These will not be published. If you are one of these owners, you will need to contact Amtech directly for your password. Please call Amtech at 800-681-0924 ext 303 or email email@example.com (not the call center) during business hours to get the password that has been assigned to you for use by you and your family.
Amtech says the most common problem some unit owners have been having is when either the internet or DirecTV has had stopped working, because the owners or renters have moved cables around in an attempt to fix it. Owners and renters are asked not to unplug anything and not to touch the router or cable modem plugins. So far, Amtech has not charged anyone for a service call when they have come in and found that owners or renters have unplugged the system or have plugged something else into the system, which caused the problems. Amtech will charge $49.95 if they have to go out and replug the units back in or fix problems caused by users. Owners should leave the DirecTV plugged in or the unit may lose activation, and the Cable Modem should also stay plugged in.
If you have problems, please be sure to call the help desk. If Amtech does not respond within 24 hours, please email Gene Deems with name, unit number and problem(s). If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-279-9735 and Gene will return the call within 24 hours.
