Adsl connection - moving home


[link to this post]
 
Ive just moved into a new house. I'm with O2 for my broadband and I initiated the broadband move from old property to new.

They said it would take 10 days to get it switched. Bt said the same for the line, so Sep 10th.

The current line and broadband is with talk talk but I've just plugged in my O2 router and without any configuration change it has connected, but only to the old adsl line speed. Adsl plus it says "connecting" in the webmin pages. It says this when it won't connect.

Does this sound right? It should be adsl plus and line can do about 14-16mbit. So is it normal to get old adsl whilst you wait to be connected. And as previous owner had talk talk and my router is configured to o2 I'm assuming it's provided by O2?

The line is still connected to the previous ISP, which is why the router can get DSL sync, but wont authenticate/connect as your router isn't setup for it. That is what I would reasonable expect.
Everything should work once the line has been switched over to o2.

AFAIK TalkTalk doesn't require authentication anymore.

So is thai what yuou are using>

If you run www.speedtest.net it gives the name of the ISP. I expect it will be TT, and some TT connections were, maybe still are, 8Mbps.

He says it is "connected at ADSL speed".

That makes sense now

I checked it again and I made a mistake, it is a dsl connection not adsl.

Ip Whois also shows its a talk talk ip and I'm connected at 5Mbit dsl

Hopefully not too long until O2 LLU. I checked and the exchange is enabled for O2 llu. Engineer just has to make the switch now.
