Switching to TPG

I've elected to change our home internet provider to TPG because they offer more downloads for less money at higher speeds for my area than iiNet can provide. What's not to like? Unfortunately, the alleged quick changeover or "churn" has so far left us without a working connection for three days. Hopefully I will return home this afternoon to find a fully operational internet connection, but I have a horrible feeling it's going to be another week. My only theory is that this has something to do with changing to ADSL2+ from regular old ADSL or possibly the weekend doesn't count in a 48-hour turnaround.

PS - It took us a while to get connected the first time too.
PPS - But that was mostly waiting for the phone line.

The connection is partly sorted out now, via a bridged connection on one of the computers. The TPG tech claimed that the PPPoE functionality on the router is not working, which sounds weird considering it worked perfectly just before we switched. It may be time to upgrade the router.
