Re: No internet light on huwaei modem

Hello @Pauldurbs


If it’s a Telkom DSL modem on a new contract or upgrade, try calling 10210 again , do a router reset & ask the support agent to confirm the router’s correctly configured & verified. Also tell them your device model, as a new contract or upgrade may have been activated but awaiting update in their system - and/or your Telkom password might be changed.


Hope you get the green light soon, good luck .

Thank you, after eventually getting telkom on the phone again it turned out that the password

had changed after upgrading.

Hi @Pauldurbs,


Glad you got it sorted!

I had similar issues after upgrade, seems to take a while to sync upgrade records between Telkom departments.

Absolutely I went between departments a few times and actually
mentioned that in my comments when I was requested
to rate the service.

Thanks again

Hi @Mthokozisi,


Unfortunately the community is not a service channel so we can't help with issues such as  line faults. 

Telkom's support options will help you   : -  


Option 1: Search the Knowledge base and ask the Community

Telkom has created this community where our customers can talk to each other, help one another solve problems, ask questions and share advice that has worked for them. This is not a service channel, but rather a Peer 2 Peer support channel where customers help each other. We won't be answering service related questions here in the Community. Rather we will direct you to one of our other service channels.


What the Community is for:

  • Finding solution to common problems that others have already solved.

Hello @lillas26,


If on a new contract perhaps your sim isn't activated yet - if it's already rica'd and activated try visiting a shop, they'll  check the sim and exchange it for you if faulty.

Re: No internet light on huwaei modem

I have been battling to get Telkom to firstly stop buffering for more than a month.

when i fianlly get them to look at the problem , i end up with no internet at all.

I all them telephonically at least every 3'rd day or via the telkom chat and the problem continues .

Is changing over to wireless a better alternative ?

as all our telkom feed in my road is through one fibre optic cable , i am very scheptical that i am being provided with the bandwidth personally and am under the impression that this is a shared line.


anyone have information ?
