I was hoping for this weekend...

    BT delivered my router today. I had a faint glimmer of hope that maybe my adsl
    would have been activated today. I just knew it wouldn't be, but out of my
    excitement I installed the package which was an absolute doddle. Easier than I
    thought.
    Clicked on the Speedtouch icon and for a moment I thought the line was active as
    it dialled into my router and connected to google. etc. Sadly, it was my
    current isdn which was connecting.
    Still, I am setup and ready for war come Wednesday, hopefully a little bit
    earlier.

    Just keep an eye on the flashing lights - BT have been known to work on
    weekends... :)

    Hi Sunil, I am not sure what I am supposed to be looking for. I have two
    steady green lights. One indicating the usb and one indicating the router is
    powered.

    It says in the troubleshooting that if the line is not active, the @ sign will
    be flashing green/yellow, but its not even on at all.

    If you are on ISDN you need it removed from the line at your home and
    returned to POT before you can run ADSL. Or do you have another POT run
    into the house?

    Ah sorry - I forgot you got Home Highway.. you will ahve to wait for the BT
    engineer to turn up before it will work

    ADSL won't work on an ISDN line (in this country, the way its currently set
    up)

    Its a different line. Going to disconnect my isdn after adsl is installed as I
    don't need both.
    Cannot figure out why the connection light is not flashing though. It should
    flash green/amber but its off.

  9. I was due to be activated on Tuesday and it went live mid-day on Friday. I
    read some other posts of people who were due to be activated on Monday who
    actually went live on Thursday. If this pattern holds true, then if they
    don't work the weekend you might be activated on Monday. Then again, with
    BT who knows?
