New installation completed but no internet for ADSL2+ connection

Level 2
I received a call from tpg that the installation of internet service at my new address is completed. So I connected the modem and saw that there is no internet access yet. I configured the modem again but no change.

This is ADSL connection? Is the router from TPG? Is it a TPLink TD-W9970?

When you turn the router on, the second light (DSL) should flash while it negotiates with the exchange. If the light is off or flashes forever, there could be a line fault. TPG will arrange with Telstra to fix this.

If DSL light is on, you need to check the settings provided by TPG.

Is there another telephone outlet you can check?

Do you have a landline telephone service? Does it get a dial tone?
