My friend has a computer that suddenly stopped logging on to xtra. It uses a Dick Smith PCI modem. Xtra help said it wasn't a problem their end. I took the computer to compulink and they tested it and there was no problem. I brought it home and there was no problem. I took it back to their place and it still wouldn't connect. Tried disconnecting all the phones but no go. Telecom tested the line --- no problem. Any ideas as to what else I can do ?? David

Try a different cable from the modem to the jack. Try a different jack point.

Telecom tests really check that the line works as a telephone line, but that's a start. :D

Can you connect to a different ISP at their place? Use your own ISP details then if it works you've isolated it down to the ISP.

If you have your own ADSL connection then you can use your user name and password to login to any ISP with Jetstream. I am with Ihug but can also login to an Xtra ADSL account no prob. So if you can use another user name and see if that works

Turned out to be a telecom line fault. The line was OK for phone but US for ADSL Telecom didn't offer to refund the compulink bill! Thanks for your thoughts David
