EE Regrade to WBC - now no internet access 20days +


[link to this post]
 
Looking for some help as EE are not providing any!! - I have been with EE / Orange / wanadoo / freeserve for over 15 years, no real issues - speed has been poor but it served my purpose.
1 month ago EE contacted my to inform me that the livebox & second line service was to be discontinued and offered an alternative - I took up the offer as I had been with the company since 1999, never used thier tech support as i could manage configuration myself and no real line issues.
Was sent a new bright box - replaced my livebox and was up and running with no issues - 10 days later a regarde took place (I was unaware of this) and my internet state bacame disconneted - 20 days later I still have no intenet access, over 30 calls to varoius Customer service reps / tech support - no solution - just being passed from department to department - tech suport L1 to L2, then onto customer services who tell me it was a BT problem ( Have both broad band and land line with EE)
I have been told that the issue maybe due to a change from an IP Stream setup the the WBC network - however cannot be confirmed. Trying a factory reset on the router everyday along with the BT_Test_user login just to see if anything has changed overnight and to prevent the same routine everytime I call support.
My line line works fine - Broadband state is connected but internet state is disconnected.
The new router worked fine until the regarde at EE, my neighbour also has a EE brightbox and is up and running fine - so I can't understand we it should be a BT problem.
Tried putting the livebox back - same problem - even dug out my old speed touch adsl modem in an attempt to get connected - same problem!

EE have advise after 30days continued disruption they will issue my MAC code - so it looks like I must wait another 8 days and then move - so much for customer loyalty looks like they have given up and would like me to do the same.

If anyone can point me or EE in the right direction it would be very welcomed

If the ADSL line is reporting a connection speed in the Brightbox but no internet access then it suggest an authentication problem.

Either BT Wholesale have messed up when regrading you, or unknown to you EE has changed the credentials, or EE has somehow locked your account out of their authentication system.

Does the modem get an IP address if you change the login to a BT Wholesale test one

This looks like one for Gavin the EE Broadband Rep!

There is obviously a communications problem between EE and BT, although you are with EE Broadband the network belongs to and is operated by BT with instructions from EE. wink

**Make sure you have input your correct username and password in the router.**

If you get no where with phone calls to EE customer support then write inů

A MAC key and a migration to another ISP would be my favoured option...sounds like Orange support are a complete waste of time!

Thank you for the info, I don't get an IP address issued from either log in, BT Test User or my own.
I have asked EE to reconfirm on thier server that my username and password is still valid, its correct to thier system however I have asked the question if their server is correct.
When EE run a line test - i can see the data light on the router is active, i also note the upstream and downstream speeds changing on the router.

I have had 18 promises of return calls from Tech / customer services - however i am still waiting.

The support and communication with EE has gone past the point of frustration - it appears if I want to stay with them - must try to resolve the problem myself - nobody at EE actually owns the problem.

You can check that yourself by trying to log in to your Member Centre with them here: https://web.orange.co.uk/r/login/

What lights show on the BrightBox?

What does it show in the top, Internet, section of its Status page?

What are the router stats on the Advanced Settings/ System/ ADSL Status page?

Yes, you are syncing OK but failing to authenticate with Orange's server with your correct credentials. Orange cannot have registered you correctly with their authentication (CHAP) server. What does it say about that in the log @ Advanced Settings/ System/ System Log?

Re: The 2nd block you posted: I actually asked for Advanced Settings/ System/ ADSL Status.

EDIT: It's disgusting that they cannot have sorted out such a simple problem in over 20 days. Time for written formal complaint and compensation?

How long since you last re-synced? Should be "Time Connected" in that 1st Status Internet block, but you didn't copy it. Also "Internet IP Address" there (the other IP addy of zeros is always 0). Copy/Paste is best.

That System Log didn't tell us anything. It's probably scrolled off.

Power OFF/ON the router, wait a few mins , then copy the System Log and the Status Internet block again here.
