No DSl/internet lights

Hi People,

So a few weeks ago I replaced my HH5 with an ASUS DSL AC68U router. After some teething issues I got it up and running (after replacing the out dated fw) and it has been flawless..

Until this morning.

Ive lost all internet both wireless and wired over all of my devices, wireless connections are still showing as connected (with internet) but its just timing out.

My AC68U has lost both the DSL light and the internet light, everything appears to be connected correctly and I haven’t messed with any settings since I had it up and running.

When I log on to the routers settings im seeing a status of disconnected you appear to have a dsl cable unplugged but I don’t.

So far all ive done to troubleshoot is restart the router. Im not in a rush to go through the set up again but will if needed.

Any ideas?

Kind regards

I just have the dsl cable from the master socket heading directly in to the router.

Then you need to get a cheap phone and check for dial tone to see if the line is ok.

Your phone line has probably become disconnected somewhere. You need to check it with a phone to avoid a possible charge if the fault is not external.

I unsuccessfully called BT on my lunch to see if they could see any issues, would they not of been able to tell if there was as issue with my phone line?

Also check the number is correct, just in case you have a crossed line, which can happen if Openreach have been working in the cabinet.
