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?
