That's normal when telstra is broken. We had that for a whole day not so
long ago.

Ofcourse, telstra might be fine. If anyone else in your area is fine then I
suggest checking all the connections. Check if pppoe -A works. Check if you
can ping the router (I forget the IP right now). The router (at least the
alcatel one) has a built in webserver which will at least tell if all those
connections are fine.

How many light are on on the modem itself?

Has it worked at all under linux yet?
