My broadband was meant to go live on Friday and apparently has done. However, when attempting to set the router up, it just constantly flashes amber and doesn't allow access to the internet. Also, the phone line has no dial tone. Not sure what to do to fix.

I'm really sorry to hear this.
I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults - Line test is clear.
If you have tested with a different phone at the test socket then the next step will be to arrange an Openreach engineer visit.
Would you like me to arrange this visit?

Thanks very much for the reply. I've tried connecting to the test socket but that doesn't seem to have worked (still not able to connect/no dial tone). So maybe it is something to do with the engineer's set up that's the issue.
I've updated my community profile so hopefully someone will be in touch soon

If your master phone socket has a test socket then you could try the phone and router in there (using a microfilter), that would then eliminate any of the phone wiring in your home as being a possible cause of the problem.
If you still have no dial tone and 'My Account' says you have gone live then that would suggest the engineer has messed up when connecting up your line.
It would be worth going to the Service Centre to run a connection test on your line, this will indicate if there is currently a fault affecting your service and may call out an engineer if it can see an obvious issue. You can also access this from the ‘My Account’ site.
