i assume you are using a sky router?
if so try a reboot, if that doesn't work you will have to ring them i'm afraid

Ive had this problem previously and was told that it was due to dns errors at sky! Try ringing the freephone number an ask for support....

Still waiting for a call back. Tried a magic number but only went to the hold music. Tried the freephone number and was speaking to someone about being able to speak to tier 3 straight away but was cut off while on hold. I rang back waited 8 mins in a que and then got thru to someone else and got told that i could be put thru. I told them that the last person i was speaking to said they would put me thru so y cant you? She just replyed i cant. Tier 3 will ring you back within 5 working days. I said thats nice so it could be upto another 5 working days before i get broadband even tho i was supposed to be connected on the 27th (which didnt happen till 28th - But bt still didnt give up the line till i rang and cancelled).
She just said sorry and there wasnt much more she could do.
So still no bb and still waiting for a call back.

Sorry to read about your problems NoXioUs
I was surprised that you said someone tried to put you through to tier3 as I understand it the norm would seem to be around 5 days for tier3 to ring back.Ray
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

Yer thats what i said but he said he would try as ive been waiting for over a week. Then i was on hold for a bit then the line went dead. wasnt very impressed.

Are you migrating from another ISP? I had the same problem - turns out that BT hadn't actually fulfilled their side of things and I was still connected to my old ISP's line at the exchange (hence the sync, but no Sky authentication).
Took a while for Tier3 to call back, and then another little while for Sky/BT to get it sorted, but all works perfectly now.

^I'm in the same position. How long did it take for T3 to call back and get sorted. I'm not too bothered as my old connection is still working but last time they never phoned. After phoning them 12days later they said again they would phone within 5 days which should be today at the latest. But I guess I'll have to get another MAC from my old ISP as its over 30days since it was issued?
