I have lost the will to live.... 2 hours on chat with technical support.... Asking me to do everything I have already done... Having to send them a photo of my new router to prove I had plugged it in... The script suggests it is a router problem with the new router!! So I now waste another week trying to fort this out ..  and under threat if I don't go out of my way to post their old router back they will charge me £50 ...  If this new one doesn't work I will send them all back and cancel my direct debit ...  You need to watch out .. you are not the cheapest out there any longer... So people will be happy to leave you with this absolutely shocking service when things go wrong

Have they fixed this for you yet ... I have the same issue and they keep telling me there is no problem... I am out of pocket this week by having to do a 50 mile round trip each day into the office and having to contemplate taking half a day unpaid so they might send out an engineer!

Hi Paul,

 

Thanks for trying that, which lights are currently on, on the ONT?

Hi Chris. 

Did that. Flashed orange and white for a few minutes and now it’s gone back to solid orange. 

Getting really desperate now. My partner runs her business from home and this is affecting her ability to communicate.

Thanks. I've found the account, showing unable to authenticate. Could you switch the router and ONT off and leave them off for at least 30 minutes, then switch back on and retest. Please let us know how you get on

Done that. Sorry I forgot the account was in my partners name. I’ve also added her phone number.

Hi Michelle. I don’t have a talk talk number on the account in question. I have two accounts. One of which was disconnected earlier last year. It the current account that is causing issues. I can give you the account number but don’t want to do it in open forum. For some reason I can only log in online to the old (disabled) account

Hi @PaulBooth 

 

I have asked one of TalkTalk's support to pick your thread up and investigate it for you.

They aim to respond within 48 hours (Monday - Friday) excluding Bank Holidays, but if more urgent you can always try the Service Centre on 0345 172 0088. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first.

To save yourself time, please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number & if possible an alternative contact number. This can be done by clicking on your Avatar picture then click on "My Settings" followed by:-

Personal Profile > Personal Information

Otherwise, TalkTalk will not be able to tie up your forum username to your broadband account. Only you & TalkTalk have visibility of your details.
