Lost wan connection at 2am this morning. DSL is locked with normalconnection speed on genius mmodem.

So I have DSL lock but no internet access.

Anyone else having the same problem?

Been waiting on CS to answer for 40 minutes since 8am this morning but still on hold.

PS have done 3 reboots of the modem with no change.

Spoke to CS. Orcon system fault. 2000 customers without connection. Up to 2 days to restore service.

That's just fantastic.

Its restoring now, ETR 30-60mins at most. 2 days would be nonsense - did you by any chance get a name?

Ok so last night we saw approx 10,000 customers shift from one of our auth servers to another - the reason for that shift is still under investigation. Having such a large number move onto a server already carrying normal load caused it to run short of some resources which caused some customers to fail to get auth.

Our Engineers are rebalancing those subscribers back to the original server, once that happens (which is being done exchange by exchange so phased over the next 30mins), users should reboot and they should obtain auth. Users won't know this so our current advice on the website is to reboot every 10mins until service restored.

Apologies for this, the root cause is still under investigation.

>98% of affected services have now been restored.

Advice now is to reboot, if still offline please log a support call with us.

Just on the 2 day thing. I had a problem last year.
Rang CS and suggested that a port reset was required as i couldn't get a ppp connection. They agreed and said it would take up to 2 days.
Before the CS moved off shore, it would have been about 15 mins.

In the end it was only 20 mins, but being told 2 days was not good for customer relation.

Thanks Simon. That explains the feeling of disconnect between the back end and CS.

Is T2 domestic a fall over if T1 is busy? How do you get through to T2 if you need more techy help :)

T2 supports T1 in this model, that way T1 learns and improves.

From my past experiences dealing with T1 I am not sure this is really happening...... especially when you request to talk to a TL etc and get refused
