Vic - ADSL2 No connection

Post by numptyNiels » Tue Aug 25, 2009 12:02 am

EDIT: That'd have to be the typical - I wait 45 mins, post, then 3 mins after that my connection comes back up again!

Admins: Feel free to delete this thread as there's no problem at present.

Hi folks,

After a bit of help - was happily connected and surfing up to about 45 minutes ago and then with no warning it dropped out.

I've power cycled my devices and checked my connections but the modem/router can sync an ADSL connection but is unable to authenticate / get an IP address (i.e. sold green light but no orange to show WAN conected - nor any flashes indicating attempts to connect.

My exchange is Northcote (Vic) but can't see anything registered as a known issue.

Any thoughts / suggestions would be most appreciated.


- Niels.

His post was 2 hrs before the planned maintenance, so it was not that.

Sorry - posted this accidentally in the archived threads...

Is this maintenance still affecting speed/service? I have very limited connectitvity at the moment. Exetel site/forum seems OK but almost everything from anywhere is a problem.

Also, see below, from (re: VIC ADSL2):
