I have been using MTNL TriBand for the past 3-4 months. My plan is 590NU. Initially the connection was working ok, but for the past few weeks I have started facing a peculiar problem. When I switch on the modem, all the indicators light up except the ADSL light, which remains off. I have a normal telephone instrument connected to the splitter; the moment I pick up the phone handset, the ADSL indicator comes on, and after about 3 minutes, my net connection is established. The connection keeps working as long as I keep the phone off-hook. The moment I put the handset back, I loose internet connection and the ADSL light goes off! Nowadays, I always keep the phone off hook to use broadband. It is like going back in time when people had to keep their phones engaged to use dial-up internet; though I am using a broadband connection, my phone remains engaged! I have tried talking to their (useless) call centre people, but no one has been able to give me a valid technical reason for the problem, or suggest any remedy. One person even sugested me to change the splitter! I have tried connecting the telephone line directly to the modem, bypassing the splitter, but in that case I dont get any connectivity at all. My modem is UT-300R2U. I am using PPPoE.Thanks for any help from anyone.

yes. seems that some problem with the main line only! get the connection checked. from pole/meter/box watever, the line should come straight to your splitter without any joints in between!

its not the problem with the joints, its problem with the connection.....Do check you SNR margin, which tend to increase when the phone is off the hook.Only few router can establish constant connection in low SNR margin, like mine - BILLION, NET-GEAR to name few...My SNR Margin is 7.0 , and when i switch on the phone, it raises to 13.0 ... i've two routers - Billion and Airtel 220BX... only billion works when phone is on the hook, while both works the vice versa.....Solution - Complain to 1504 - stating frequent disconnection from so n so date - connection not stable at all - gets disconnected in 5 min etc etc blah blah....hope to get ur query solved....
