Can I use my own router with Jade Internet?2021-05-26T15:50:29-06:00

Meet Jade Premium Wi-Fi.

We’ve found that Wi-Fi produced by store-bought routers is the main source of frustration and cause of trouble tickets for people who do not understand why their speeds seem slow or why their online experiences are subpar. This is the reason why we’ve decided to offer a fully managed Premium Wi-Fi service for our subscribers (at no extra cost).

Premium Wi-Fi gives your home an upgrade with signal in every room, strong connections for all your devices, and increased speeds for faster online activity. And it’s included in the cost of your service. Premium Wi-Fi is required for your Internet connection to work properly.

What are the benefits of Premium Wi-Fi?

With Jade Premium Wi-Fi, you don’t have to worry about updating your router’s firmware to keep it operating and secure, and we make sure it supports the latest devices and fastest speeds with all the latest updates. Plus, you get to control your Internet experience with the award-winning Jade Wi-Fi App, available on both the App Store and Google Play.  On the app, you can setup parental controls, run speed tests, create guest networks for parties and events, and get real time updates on your security and information.

Tips to Improve Your Internet Experience2021-05-10T12:29:28-06:00

Consider Updating Equipment

Outdated devices – also called legacy devices – operate in older software versions that can cause high levels of interference and do not allow you to take advantage of current Wi-Fi speeds. Mixed generations of gaming consoles can also cause issues.

Be Aware of Signal Obstructions

Physical obstructions in homes such as adobe walls, cement walls, thick mirrors, metal frames or siding, and some types of flooring, can reduce the range of a Wi-Fi network by 25% or more. Adding a Jade Wi-Fi Extender to your home can extend your signal and give your more internet in every room.

Protect your Data and Your Family

Don’t be an easy target for individuals looking to access your personal information to use for their own illegal purposes. Viruses and Spyware programs are being created at an alarming rate. To help secure your computer and protect your personal information, we offer several recommendations.

  • Use Premium Wi-Fi (avoid store-bought routers)
  • Stay current on operating system updates
  • Leverage ProtectIQ – Jade’s system that protects you and your family from web intrusions and online viruses (included free in your internet service)
  • Use long passwords that contain numbers, letters, caps and special characters
  • Backup all critical data using an external drive

Feel free to contact Technical Support for additional help.

When is my Jade Bill due?2022-08-10T15:13:05-06:00

Jade’s Billing Cycle

Since we bill a month in advance, the invoice you receive on the 22nd of the month is for the upcoming month’s services. For example, your bill for July will be sent to you (by email or mail) on June 22nd, and that invoice covers the services rendered between July 1 and July 31st. To avoid administrative charges, this invoice must be paid in full by July 10th.

Jade Billing Cycle Timeline

Understanding Your Bill2022-09-27T14:12:08-06:00

Your First Bill Explained

Your first Jade Internet bill will more than likely be higher than your following monthly bills. If your installation date does not take place on the 22nd of the month, your first bill will include the charges for the upcoming month as well as a prorated charge for the current month.

Additional charges: Your bill will also include the cost of any add-on services, like Jade Security or home phone, if requested.

How does the prorated charge work for the first month?

The prorated charge is a one-time charge for the period you’ve used your Jade Internet service in the first month. The prorated period begins the day you started service and ends on the 22nd of that month. The prorated charge is included in your first bill along with the charge for the next month’s service. You’ll receive your next bill around the 22nd of the month.

Why am I being charged extra for Premium Wi-Fi service?

All equipment and technology is included with your Jade Internet. There is no extra charge for equipment or technology (routers, switches, etc.). However, we are required by the government to itemize your bill. So, even though your equipment and technology is included in the cost of your Internet service it is itemized as a separate line item on your monthly bill.

I have a credit on my account. How will it look on my monthly bill? 

If you have a credit on your account, it will show up on your monthly bill with the letters CR next the amount due. On the online portal or MyJade ebill app, this credit will show up in parenthesis (). This is not an amount that you owe, instead it’s a record of your account history.

Why is my Arlo wire-free camera offline?2022-04-26T09:41:56-06:00

If your Jade Security / Arlo Camera is offline, follow these troubleshooting steps:

  1. If your Arlo camera or device was working before and now it is offline, follow these troubleshooting steps:
    • Is your Arlo device connected to the correct Wi-Fi network? 
    • Is your router connected to the internet? 
      • Wi-Fi router: If your router isn’t connected to the internet, you can try unplugging your router, waiting 30 seconds, and plugging it back in. If your router still does not connect to the internet, please call our Wi-Fi Wizards at 719-589-5140
    • Is there Wi-Fi signal interference? 
      • Environments with multiple Wi-Fi networks, Wi-Fi devices, or frequencies can cause signal interference. If possible, minimize the number of networks, Wi-Fi devices, and transmitted frequencies in the area where you place your camera.
    • Is your Arlo device receiving power? 
      • If your Arlo device uses a battery, make sure the battery is charged (and properly inserted, if the battery is removeable). The Arlo app lets you know if your battery is low.
      • If your Arlo device is plugged in to an electrical outlet or solar panel charger, make sure that the connections are secure and that the outlet or solar panel is receiving power. We recommend that you use only Arlo cable accessories that are compatible with your Arlo product. Avoid using third-party charging cables.
    • Turn your Arlo device off and on: 
      • If your Arlo device uses a removeable battery, remove the battery for ten seconds, then reinsert the battery.  If you are using a wired device, unplug the power for ten seconds, then plug the device back in.
      • If you can’t turn off your device, go to the next troubleshooting step.
    • Is your camera too hot or too cold? 
    • Check Arlo service status. 
      • Check Arlo’s status at to stay up to date with our latest service updates.
    • Perform a factory reset on your device. 
      • If you tried all the above options, and the Arlo app still shows that your device is offline, remove your device from the Arlo app and factory reset it. Then reinstall the device.
      • For help factory resetting your device, visit How do I factory reset my Arlo camera?.
