    Question ADSL activated but no DSL light?

    Hi.
    Today I received a call telling me that my ADSL was activated and I can proceed with the self install.

    Please note that i don't have a phone connected to my line, yet. Only my router (Linksys WAG320n) as I don't have any micro-filters.

    However when I plug my router into the RJ11 (wall plug) my router's DSL light does not turn on.
    Does anybody have any advice?
    Do I need some other hardware?

    I want to move from the Telkom R49/GB to a better/cheaper provider. Caught with a "Closer' bundle though. Telkom do themselves no favours and still there is ultimately no choice - they make money no matter what the solution.

    Default Help Please

    Hi Guys

    I have a 4 meg uncapped account through Afrihost. I am experiencing painfully slow speeds. It is really tough to put my finger on what is causing this as the 4 meg connection to telkom is very stable and has never dropped - see below connection stats.

    DSL Information ---
    DSL Driver Version: AnnexA version - A2pB023k.d21d
    DSL VPI/VCI: 8/35
    DSL Status: Showtime
    DSL Mode: G.DMT
    DSL Channel:
    DSL Upstream Rate: 512 Kbps
    DSL Downstream Rate: 4096 Kbps

    Down up
    DSL Noise Margin: 27.7 dB 14.0 dB
    DSL Attenuation: 10.0 dB 5.0 dB
    DSL Transmit Power: 11.7 dBm 12.3 dBm

    I am getting no more than 10 kbps dl speed which is absolutely ridiculous on a 4 meg account. I have tried a separate login with a different vendor and same result so the problem is definitely with Telkom.

    I really am confused as the connection seems good.

    Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    This is directed to LottaFun whose comment is found on the first page

    I haven't had the best experience with MWEB so far as my connection on my 4meg ADSL Line is up and down all the time, but it is only a couple of days that I have been with them and have downloaded almost 100gig so far, only really grouchy because I am battling to log onto World of Warcraft I think LOL :P but anyway, if you are not happy with Telkom, then switch to MWEB, contact MWEB on 0860 11 22 52 and request that you want to sign up with them and do a line Migration from Telkom, process takes about 10 Days but overall it is cheaper and they are far more helpful, except that they will never call you by the looks of things you must always call them ROFL

    Get an uncapped acount from a reseller that sells the IS Uncapped Unshaped account that only shapes/throttles your download speeds when you are in the top 50% of heavey downloaders. I average 28 mb over the 10 day rolling period (80-85 Gig per month) without ever being throttled. I get a star rating mailed to me every day and as long as you keep it at 2 stars you are safe.

    Telkom can supply you with voice and data line (adsl) so you get telephone number and on the same number you can connect and browse internet

    Hi. An easy way to test your connection is by using pingtest.net This will measure your connection quality by packetloss, ping time, and jitter. At the end you will get the result with a classification of your line. A is best. Take care, Ray from Nordcom ADSL Norge.

    Some ISP's will take on fault reporting for you. You need to move your line over to the ISP and then never have to sit and listen to that music again ! The faults are escalated and usually at least get some real attention.

    What else can I do? Where can I log a complaint at Telkom?
