Seems so. Still on hold to help desk now 40 minutes. Status shows all green on Telecom website! Good to have geek zone to get some information.

Help desk answered and confirmed the problem is widespread. Suggested I wait 2 hours and recheck and call again if not working. Stated that it was an " authentication" problem.

Same problem here in Henderson, lights on router said there is ADSL signal on the line but no PPP.

This one sounds very major.

Strange, I am in Hamilton and no issues here, but friend also in Hamilton text me saying her internet is down. Was there any indication on which part of the country is affected?

Out in Auckland CBD for me as well. Red light on router.
Rebooted, checked connections... nothing...




The little things make the biggest difference.
