Error 691: Invalid username or password.
This error can only be caused by one thing, the username and/or password you have entered to connect does not match the username and/or password we have on our servers.

Occasionally this can be down to a server problem, however the majority of the time a simple re-type of the username and password when attempting to connect resolves this issue.

Error 718: PPP Timeout
This error indicates a connection was made with the server and a PPP conversation started, but was terminated because the remote server did not respond within an appropriate time.

This can usually be resolved by restarting your computer and attempting to connect again. If this does not resolve this issue, it is likely that there is a problem with the exchange/servers you are connecting to. If there is a problem with the exchange/servers there is nothing that can be done to your computer to get this working straight away. We recommend you try the connection again in 30 minute intervals. If the problem persists after 3 hours we recommend you contact our support team on 0871 420 1499 to see if there are any outages with the Broadband service.
