Had a client on friday loose their DSL sync.
Telecom 2nd level help said there was a firmware upgrade done at the cabinet on friday
Tried two routers supplied by telecom - the thomson tg585 and their old still working dlink 302. Both wont sync up.
Chorus tech came out and confirmed sync and a connection with his ancient Nokia dsl router, tested the line and reckoned everything was okay. Until he remembered - he had another call out around the corner with another customer last week. same issue - after firmware was upgraded on their cabinet, they couldnt sync up with their modem. Reckons Alcatel are outsourced to manage the dslams.
So the chorus tech reckons we should ring telecom and ask for a replacment modem. But i am guesing this is going to be difficult.
He is going to mention the firmware upgrade as the cause of the fault in the chorus ticket.
It seems stupid that they wouldnt test modems they issued against new cabinet firmware.
I am wondering if this has happened to anyone else before and what their outcome was?
