Dsl line issue

Hi, I recently had a storm and since then my internet is not working. I thought I burnt out the modem from the lightning so I purchased a new modem but still no change. Can a line test be done as I don't have a home phone to check.

Thanks for sending the account details via PM, @nashtayelola92. We have checked the status of your connection and it shows that the modem is not getting any line signal.

 

We'll be needing your help for further testing. Is the modem currently connected and on? May we know if you're at home now?

Yes the modem is connected and on.
I'm currently not home but I will be home at 5pm. The dsl light on the modem will flash ever now and then but that's as far as I get.

Thanks for letting us, @nashtayelola92. Can you disconnect the modem completely out of the telephone socket and let us know once done so we can run the test?

Dsl line has been removed and power is still on.

You can reconnect the cable now and please make sure that it is properly connected, @nashtayelola92.

 

Let me know once done so we can proceed with another test.
