Hello everyone, hope you are all splendid.
I really need some assistance as I'm near the end of my tether.
I've been offline since the 13/04 and after numerous support calls it was ascertained that a problem existed with the exchange. Cue friendly Openreach chap to tell me it has been fixed their end and I should be good to go. But sadly, still no connectivity. After another protracted battle with Tech Support they said the problem is likely with the wiring into my house, another Openreach chap got in touch and this time came into the house, did his checks, changed the master socket and said the problem is likely with the router.
Ring TalkTalk, attempt to explain, they send a new router and to absolutely no one's surprise, it does not connect, instead flashing amber/white upon boot and then a steady amber light.
I've done more soft/hard resets, reset to factory defaults than I can keep count of. I'm getting this close to cancelling and going back to dial-up or two cans and a really long piece of string.
If anyone can help me, it would be appreciated.

Had an Openreach engineer get in touch today and here is what he surmised:
* Telephone landline has been reconnected
* The broadband service is currently associated with plusnet
* He rang up talktalk to enquire as to why the service isn't with you and he was told it will not go active as there is an outstanding balance on the account.
* As alluded to on another ticket, that bill has now been settled and we have signed a new contract.
Can you let me know if the above makes sense and if everything is now ready for us to be reconnected?

Thanks for trying that. Line test is also picking up a potential issue so I've logged this to Openreach for investigation. Openreach will investigate and may contact you directly if they need to access your home

We have 2 sockets, one in the bedroom that we've never used and the master socket downstairs. The master socket (model: openreach mk4) has only the rj11 cable plugged in.
I've tried the test socket with a filter, another rj11 cable in case that helps troubleshooting.
