    Greetings group.
    I have a friend who is trying to set up a ADSL service, but it is not
    working. Bigpond say the problem is at the customers end.

    If another computer + ADSL modem that is already working on another
    phone line in another house is brought to my friends house, will it
    work without changing any settings?

    Can anyone suggest any other kind of test to find out where the problem
    may be?

    Define 'not working'. Did blue smoke escape? Did it get a connection but
    you can't transfer information? What have you tried? What happened when
    you tried it?

    Many (all?) ADSL modems have built-in diagnostics and event logs that
    you can access from a browser interface. If you can identify the make
    and model, maybe someone will be able to point you in the right

    Don't type, copy & paste! (somehow "Don't
    walk, run!" didn't seem appropriate ;-)

    Plenty of forums to answer your questions, even down to specific
    router/modem makes & models.

    As long as the modem is connected to the same ISP (some ISPs such as
    Optarse and Bigpuddle require special firmware settings/features) then
    there "shouldn't" be a problem doing such, however I will make no

    Also, take note that aus.computers would be a more relative group for
    this topic as it is more to do with the subject of computers than

    At the time I sent the first post, I had not been at my friends house.
    was plugged into the phone line, but it did not.

    The problem has been solved, the trouble was at telstra's end.
