Default Whoosh test failure ... indicative of what?

What does a failed "whoosh" test indicate?

I have a USB modem connected *totally* independently to a BT POTS
socket, yet the sync light does nothing but flash, i.e. there is no
synchronising with the exchange.

The ISP did a whoosh test, which failed, and called BT in.
BT say there is connectivity.

Absolutely nothing else is plugged into this phone socket, yet i cannot
get the modem to sync ... faulty modem?

But what did the whoosh test mean?


There's no such thing as a "whoosh" test....
However, there is a "woosh" test.......

For that matter, there's no such thing as a "woosh test" either.

Woosh is a test platform NOT a test.

The woosh platform covers exchange stuff, private wires, isdn, etc. adsl &
sdsl are just the latest bits to be added to it.
