DSL Blinking. No internet. Month old customer.

First Timer



The internet went down thrice last night, and when I came home from work today it just wasn't working.


I have reset and re-wired my setup many times now, and all that I get is a constant blinking power led, while the dsl light blinks in successions of four.


Help would be appreciated.

Talk agents on live chat are unavailable. I keep getting error messages when arranging a callback.

I have connected to the test socket with success. Is this an okay solution as there are three of us who live here?

Hi ,


running from the test socket is fine.


It does show that you have problems somewhere on your internal wiring.
