Welcome to Vodafone Community
I migrated to Vodafone fibre broadband in the last few days from another provider and since then I have been unable to access the internet.
Router is working fine in itself and doing everything it needs to do from a LAN/WiFi perspective. It *was* being assigned an public IP address and I could even successfully ping the first hop onto the Vodafone network (184.108.40.206) as shown in the traceroute below:
$mtr 220.127.116.11 -r

The packet capture the router allows you to do showed that any requests being sent out to anywhere on the internet (except 22.214.171.124) simply disappeared with no reply.
I have spoken on the phone to Vodafone broadband support, and while the woman I spoke to was very polite and tried to be helpful, she did not grasp my problem well enough to be able resolve the issue. She "reset" my account from Vodafone's perspective and asked me to factory reset the router and reassured me that after an hour my problem would be resolved. So I said thanks and waited. Predictably, this didn't work! A day later, I am still without broadband.
Since my account has been 'reset' by tech-support, my router doesn't even get as far as being assigned an IP address. I can see on the router DSL Status page that the link speed is good and the SNR is good, so is not a physical connection problem, it's likely to be some form on config issue on Vodafone's end.
I fear being stuck in a first-line support factory-reset loop forever. What do I have to do to get a higher level of technical support to look at this? I didn't think transferring my broadband to Vodafone would be so much hassle
