Can’t connect to new router/modem

Hi Guys,

 

im stuck with my new broadband router and would appreciate your help and patience whilst I explain this:). 

a little over two weeks ago BT incorrectly billed my account and put me in sever arrears and restricted ALL services where restricted and the account was closed. when I highlighted this to themselves they accepted liability and agreed to open a new account and waive any costs to set this up, the BT engineer arrived today and the new router went to an instant solid blue, and told me it will work at midnight, the services have not activated after waiting much longer than one day and each time I try to connect to my WiFi it brings me to a page titled: 

62.6.38.125 & 194.74.65.98

Welcome to this user forum

Please can you check that your line has the correct phone number on it. Dial 17070, and you should hear your number read out, and can check it against your own number.

A crossed line or an incorrectly wired connection in the cabinet, can cause this error message.

It would appear your account hasn't been reinstated correctly. You need to call customer services to find out what has happened.

Re: Can’t connect to new router/modem

On the phone as we speak and useless as ever the keep reiterating it’s been reinstated correctly (clearly not) and they are laughing that I’m being stressed out about this (logging a complaint as we speak), the services I’m receiving are completely shocking firstly my services are incorrectly cut off then they accept liability issue a mini hub that you can barely watch a video on let alone work on and to top it off, come activation day it doesn’t work or the day after, somethings not right and I’m bro g told it’s MY fault

No, a basic wired phone is cheap, and helps to identify the issue, as a crossed line can take a while for BT to discover, as it will not show up on a line test.

There is nothing else you can do, apart from call BT.

The mods are that busy ATM it would take about a week for them to get around to your case.

Re: Can’t connect to new router/modem

If you have a crossed line, that would be why they cannot detect a fault.

Get hold of a cheap wired phone (Less than £10), or borrow one from somebody, and check the phone number.

If its incorrect, then make a note of the number it says, and then ring BT and tell them your line is crossed with that number. They will ask Openreach to investigate.

Engineer has been booked for Monday 1-6 I can’t believe after how many issues I’m even still with BT the internet is  about as useful as a bike with no wheels, the manager on the line even self admitted it’s a fault
