Are they on the street or in a business? If the latter, contact the business owner and have them call TWC.
The Ruckus biz hotspots have a pretty decent 2.4 gHz signal but the 5.8 gHz is illegal to use outside.
Max distance setting is I believe 500' on the indoor ones even though you may have full signal beyond that. they measure the 186,000 miles per second propagation delay to limit distance...
Try another hotspot, if it doesn't work, login on your home wireless and then change your password. There are issues with the switch to spectrum and passwords/ user accounts aren'y getting corrected unless you do a password change.
Also the AP might need to be installed and run first time on your home connection.
The above primarily has applied to TWCTV that's "watchspectrumnow"
Good morning all!
When your are phoning in are you calling the TWC WIFI Support contact number 888-851-9350?
If not I would suggest that number for assistance with the hotspots.
Thank you for participating in the Forums.
Have a good rest of the day!

Hi guys. I just got off the phone with a TWC WiFi customer support rep, and he confirmed that it *IS* in fact an issue on their ened, and that they've been getting a lot and I mean a *LOT* of troubleshooting tickets over the last couple weeks regarding the issue. He told that most of the outdoor hotspots in California are not functioning, and that they're doing the best they can to fix the issue. Welp, guess we'll just have to wait patiently and see what hjappens. Glad I was at least able to confirm it's a TWC/Spectrum issue.
You may also have businesses that have discontinued service with TWC/Spectrum , returned the modems but left the Ruckus AP powered up and running.. It will still have a twc SSID but since there's no modem, no internet....
