I've recently had a phone and broadband order complete which required the installation of a new line. Although I received an SMS stating the broadband service is ready, I have no DSL sync with a known-good router which is suggests to me that ADSL isn't enabled on the line.
I also appear to have an outstanding tracking order on this account with a VOL number which differs from the VOL regarding the line installation which cannot currently be tracked.
Is there any way to find out the status of the ADSL activation on my line? I contacted support, however, my query resulted in a fault raised requiring another engineer visit as it was somewhat difficult in getting my query across and I'm uncertain whether an engineer visit is required if ADSL activation is simply in progress.
Were you not supplied a Homehub?
Have u set up your "known-good router" correctly. You need to use the user name email@example.com and if your router requires a password use BT or anything else you like.
I opted to supply my own router - last used before I switched to fibre at another property so I'm 99% sure it's still fine.
I am using a <username>@btbroadband.com username with BT as the password (though I would still assume that the modem to acheive DSL sync even without the correct login credentials), PPPoA VC and 0/38 VPI/VCI settings.
See here for the router settings on an ADSL connection
You should not need an engineer visit to your house to set up ADSL broadband. Have you contacted BT to confirm that the activation has gone ahead as planned?
That's the same article that I referred when I initially hit my problem.
I attempted to contact BT however I wasn't able to get a clear answer from support, which ended up in my query getting raised as fault and an engineer appointment. As I received an SMS message that the broadband service was active shortly after the message notifying me that my new line is installed, I assumed that the activation had completed.
I was hoping to avoid the situation where an engineer arrived expecting to find an enabled broadband service but found that the problem was down to BT not having activated it on my line.
I am going to move this thread onto the ADSL broadband board where you will get people with more knowledge about ADSL than me who will be able to help.
are you connected to test socket and still nothing - no internet?
