Basic Troubleshooting Steps for ADSL Services

If you have a NSW.net ADSL connection and can't connect to the Internet, follow these steps before logging a call with Hitech Support:

  1. Look at the lights on the D-Link and record them on a piece of paper
  2. Check to see if the SonicWall and D-Link have power
  3. Switch off the D-Link and then switch off the SonicWall
  4. Switch on the D-Link and wait for the power light (solid), the status light (flashing) and the ADSL light (solid) to come on
  5. Switch on the SonicWall and wait about 1 minute then test the connection to see if you can access the Internet

If after you follow the above steps and you still can't access the Internet, refer to the following:

Issue: The SonicWall or D-Link isn't on
Resolution: Check the power connections and test for a faulty powerboard or wall socket. If the device still isn't getting power on an active power socket, it may be faulty.
Action: Contact Hitech Support

Issue: The ADSL light doesn't come on, or just continually flashes without eventually going solid
Resolution: There is an issue with your phone line. Unplug the D-Link and plug a normal phone into the phone socket. If you cannot hear a dial-tone, please call Hitech Support and they will log a fault with Telstra line faults. If you do, then it may possibly be an issue at the exchange.
Action: Contact Hitech Support and they will log a call with your ISP

Issue: The ADSL light is on, the SonicWall is on and I still can't connect to the Internet
Resolution: Call Hitech Support as there could be an issue with your ADSL account or with the configuration of your SonicWall.
Action: As above
