Mauritius Telecom “Tech” who did not see the network port

31 December 2010, ~17hrs…

Mauritius Telecom’s “technician” calls to tell me that there’s no network card on the laptop.

Surprised, I asked him to double check and he confirmed that there-was-no-network-cable-port on the brand new laptop. I told him to install the ADSL modem using the USB cable instead. To this request, he told me that he tried too, but the operating system could not locate the modem while being connected through USB. I insisted that he should try again.

Let me now give you more details.

Some of you might remember, I recently purchased a laptop for a relative, who then applied for a 3GB ADSL connection. A few days afterwards, i.e. on the 31st December 2010, a MT technician went to their place for the installation and configuration of the modem.

Note : Mauritius Telecom charges Rs1000 for this installation done during normal working hours.

As you have probably guessed, the “technician” was surely in a hurry to reach home on this last day of 2010, without being able to connect the laptop to internet.

Being the one who understands these geek things in the family, I was the one who was again called there to fix things. When I reached there, the relative told me that the laptop should probably be returned to the seller since the Mauritius Telecom’s “technician” said that it was not a good one. The relative also showed me a piece of paper, on which were written the following :

The professional’s advice :

The technician told them

  • about the “missing” LAN card and
  • additionally, he gave them some piece of advice, freely : Change the current Windows 7 to either Windows XP (SP2/3) or Windows Vista or
  • Uninstall some apps due to high performance in task manager.

I still can’t understand the last 2 points and the connection with the modem.


Missing LAN

Was he blind? Or perhaps he doesn’t know where a LAN cable should be connected?

As you can see, the LAN port is there. Some miracle? I should perhaps believe in god in that case.

Connectivity issues

I connected the LAN cable, went through the installation process and configured the Beetle modem (220BXZ). No connectivity. Tried the same thing with the USB cable, nothing. And yes, the Windows 7 did recognize the USB modem when I was there. To make sure that the problem was not with the laptop, I connected a second laptop running Windows XP. Same problem.

Windows complained about some problems with the router :

I checked the lights on the modem :

Power, ADSL : Lighting steadily

Data : Off

LAN : Blinking Green and sometimes Red.

Calling 8900#2

I phoned the Orange Customer Care, listened to their waiting tune for some 5 minutes. After several additional calls and requests to reset/test the telephone line, the people out there discovered that there was an issue with the synchronization of the modem.

They told me that there are going to log a complaint and a team will come to check it after a few days. As promised, 2-3 days later (i.e. today), Mauritius Telecom technician(s) went there and the problem was solved.

During the day, I called back the Customer Care to complain about the SUPER-Technician who (1) not only charged an installation fee of Rs1000, but (2) he also found out that the laptop has no network card, (3) was unable to connect the modem using USB, (4) advised to downgrade the operating system or uninstall programs, (5) noticed high performance in the task manager of a 1-2 weeks old laptop which has the strict basic and bundled software installed.

The customer care agent was unable to attend to my requests. She said that she tried her best but she could not redirect me to the proper person with whom I could eventually write an official complaint against the “technician” and also, discuss to cut off that “installation fee” that was totally useless.

She lastly advised me to report the problem to some guys who will probably phone at the relative’s home to inquire if they are really connected. Some kind of follow up. Never got that call.

I will not end this matter here. This technician surely needs some $#%@!

    Surely the technician is completely untrained guy, must have looked for the ethernet port at the back and thought “Pena port par derriere??? E avoy sa merde doo!” .. and when he saw that Windows 7 was running, he thought “Ki couyonade sa! Zamer mone instal sa lor sa Windows la… banela pane montrer moi sa”

  • Observer

    Classic stuff..
    Once a technician went to a friend’s place to install MyT, the installation was troublesome with laptop not being to communicate with the router. Now our technician called his headquarters and my friend figured out someone at the other end was explaining to the technician step by step how to..(wait for it)… a cmd prompt session and how to use ‘ping’…. finally my friend resolved the problem himself…..

  • Sagitarius

    Hi Yashwin .I’m fighting a recently developed keyboardphobia to write this . Everybody should spread the word that paying Rs1000 to connect an adsl modem is !!?? [can’t find the proper word].
    I suppose someone installing adsl for the 1st time might think it requires some specific skill in which only MT technician are trained – specially when they hear about the fee claimed by MT .

    Normally , it should take less than a minute to connect that modem . The reason it did not work certainly comes from the MT server : the green DATA light being off indicates just that .

    For 4 or 5 days starting 23 December I was not able to connect to the internet . I’m probably not the only one . There must have been a sharp increase in connection volume in the last week of December and MT could have been selling beyond its capacity . Maybe that was the real cause of your relative’s problem .

  • So they haven’t heard about Windows 7 yet..

    There another problem that I find in almost every MyT installation at my friends/relatives have: they cannot connect to the livebox via WiFi… The technician couldn’t do it at my place as well! The solution was simple: just to login on the livebox and set the parameters for the WiFi! Even a kid could have done that, given instructions…


    Ala ki arriver kan prend dimoune par backing politique pou travail. Ena boucoup technicien competent ki met dans coin acause backing. A bon entendeur salut

  • Shailen Sobhee

    Your relative should ask for the Rs 1000 back!(or at least 50% back.)

  • yurit0s

    ene ban toutouk ki travail labas.
    enfin si capave dire le mot “travail” meme

  • Follow up

    I was at the Telecom’s Tower customer care a few mins ago. The agent there sent a request to waive off the ‘installation’ fee.

    As for the technician’s professionalism, she asked me to write a complaint to the direction of MT. Hehe.

  • Torpedo

    @ Yashvin:

    “Waive the ‘installation’ fee?”

    I now suggest you send a claim for Rs 1,000 (plus VAT?) for doing someone else’s job. Because their accepting to waive the fee implies that they had the job done, not by them, but by you.

    Dakor, pa dakor?

    A malin méchant, méchant et demi! 🙂 hehe

  • Good morning @milli.

    Let me reassure you, you can fight for your case. It’s no use calling the Customer Care, they really s*ck. Go directly to a Mauritius Telecom office (I would advise Telecom Tower’s) and tell them that you dont accept to pay for these days were your ADSL is not working for some reason, independent of you. Everything is on their side.

    Instead of paying a full month’s bill, they should bill you a pro-rata one. Good luck, and keep us informed.

    Bon weekend!

  • rwishi

    Thank god I dont suffer such problems with emtel’s technicians. What emtel does is that they hire company on contract to act as their technicians, if customer feedback is not good, they simply terminate the contract. Thankfully, the current batch of technicians are extremely competent. And as for the billing, emtel automatically reduces your billl if your connection was offline for a day…

    1 friend fek gagne so modem, but MT haven’t given the instruction on how to connect it.

    My friend refuse to pay Rs1000 for the tech.

  • @Ramesh : Are you sure your friend did not get the instruction sheet, together with the username and password?
    Unfortunately, I dont have the exact steps but dont worry, I am sure someone will answer to you on this blog post. Keep checking.

  • ramesh

    He only got a invoice on which the username and password was written.

    I don’t understand why MT people behave like this……

  • Lapin

    @Ramesh, have you got the steps by steps procedure? Because your comment is 1 week old, kapav tone fini gagne ene tutorial! Avan mo explik tw, confirm mw stp!

  • Hello @Lapin!
    Would you mind giving the exact steps here? They may be of some use to anyone else in need for instructions.
    Thank you very much!

  • Lapin

    Ok, I will explain the procedures in steps by steps!
    Assume you have already your accessories: The Beetel modem, the RJ45 cable, two RJ11 cables, the modem adaptor and the splitter!

    1/ Switch on your computer!

    2/ Plug the RJ11 cable in the modem port (line) and the other end to the splitter (modem). Don’t forget you have two RJ11 cables, so the last one plug it to your telephone and the other end to the splitter (phone)

    3/ Then, plug your existing RJ11 cable which comes from your telephone socket to the splitter (line).

    4/ After that, plug your RJ45 cable to your modem (Ethernet) and to your LAN card.

    5/ Then, plug your modem’s adaptor to the modem and to the electricity socket.

    6/ Switch on the modem.

    7/ You will find the PC/USB and the POWER will blink on your modem.

    8/ Now, open your browser and insert as address.

    9/ Click Enter.

    10/ You will find a window where you have to insert your username and password.

    11/ The default username is ‘admin’ and password as ‘password’.

    12/ Press Enter

    13/ Now, another window will appear.

    14/ Look on the left panel of the window, you will see ‘Advanced Setup’.

    15/ Click on it.

    16/ Another window will appear.

    17/ Click on ‘Edit’.

    18/ Click ‘Next’.

    19/ Click ‘Next’ again.

    20/ Now you will see the forms where you will have to insert your given username and password by Mauritius Telecom. (NOTE: Always put @tplus at the end of the username).

    21/ Click ‘Next’.

    22/ Click ‘Next’ again.

    23/ Click ‘Save’.

    24/ Click on ‘Save/Reboot’.

    25/ Your modem has been configured and will reboot in 2 minutes or less.

    26/ Close your configuration window now.

    27/ Mission accomplished, you can surf on the internet.

    Hope you have understood the procedures well, if you have problems, do ask me. Thank you…bye!

  • @Lapin: Thanks a lot for the ultra-detailed instructions 🙂


    Mauritius Telecom called me a few minutes ago. They told me that they will start the investigation but they first need the name of the client. So, now things are going to be serious 😉


  • Lapin

    its ok!

  • ramesh

    thanks for the steps.

    I did everything as type above, except i didn’t put the @tplus.

    Thank you, I really appropriate it.

    They did give him the instruction but my friend dad threw the paper away……….lol

  • Lapin

    Many people do the same error.

    @Yashvin, do you mean about the complaint you made on the technician?

  • Yes @Lapin, they called me about the complaint made:-)

  • rajeev

    i am another upset customer to be of Mauritius Telecom

    I needed a new line installed to get MyT installed and Yes I cannot apply to get Internet until I have had the line installed. That’s technology from Mauritius Telecom, bunch of Idiots

    I took a day off and they said they will come between 8.30 to 1.30, it is now 2.48 and still no sign.

    MT say the installation job is done by contractors, so they putting the blame on someone else. calling 8900 is just useless, these call centre guys cant do anything.

    I can’t even get hold of the name of the person who is responsible for these things. I did submitted my application on the 28th of December.

    I don’t think they will turn up today and there is one I can really complain to, if you know please supply his details.

  • 🙂 @rajiv, you’ll have to bug them a few times, go to different Orange shops… that’s our dear Orange… I’m so lucky to have got my phone line in 10 weeks (sic).. and MyT adds 2 more weeks… Same case, I don’t need a fixed phone, I just need broadband.

  • Amathulla

    Hi Everyone here!

    I have a similar problem to the above. Actually I have recently subscribed to ADSL 3GB Home and opt to complete the installation on my own since it seemed really easy at first glance. I managed to connect everything and complete the steps required to configure the modem (i.e. go onto, advanced setup, … up to save/reboot of modem). All goes well.

    However, amongst the last steps on the configuration sheet MT provided me, I had to connect the USB cable of modem to my laptop and complete its installation using the software CD that accompanied the modem. The problem now arises since the driver on the software CD is apparently designed for Windows 2000/98/XP while I have Windows 7 (64 bit) installed on the laptop. The driver installation could not be completed and therefore the laptop recognises some sort of problems with the device (i.e. the modem).

    Each time I switch on the modem, I do manage to get conected to the internet but after a while the connection goes off. Again I should swift off/on the modem to get the connection. Basically I presume the problem lies with the driver and incompatibility with Windows 7.

    So could anyone please be kind enough to let me know where I can manage to get the proper drivers for Windows 7?

    The modem details are as follows:
    Beetel 220 BX2 ADSL 2+ Modem

    The software CD contains an .exe setup file designed to install “ADSL USD Driver 1.3”.

    Thanks in anticipation!

    How they suck!!
    Last month on the 13th April, i made an application for a new telephone line at the Mauritius Telecom Shop of Quatre-Bornes.They told me that within a week, the technician will come and make the installation (Rs 1000 cost).
    As promise the technicians came on Saturday 16th April. Make the enough installation, ( they had some problem cause already have two telephone line home), thus they make the connection and test it.( i was not here to assist that, so my maid confirm when they call to confirm whether the line is OK. Though they take back their telephone which mean the new tel connection need a new phone.
    On the next Monday, i went to the nearest, telecom shop and made the necessary payment for them to activate my phone line. They proposed me to by a telephone, which i refused cause with the new line its only for a third internet connection( by the way i have already 2 MY t connection of 1mbps, and 2mbps) the third one is for my new server on which all my student will connect to access online training.
    By the way, today MY T technician come at my house to make, the installation. As usual i’m at work though my maid let them make their work.
    They call me at 13:25, to tell me that it’s impossible to connect the server cant connect the internet.
    here my server: processor Intel Xeon, 512 ram, 500gb hdd.
    Though i told them to look one more time cause, its funny yesterday night i have connected the server via my 2mb connection.
    Great can continue working…my phone ring again>>ops my home phone number>
    (me)Hello>>(tech)Oui pas pou capav configurer sa boss, li pas p detecter ou drive ek no connection?? ou bizin change ou bizin upgrade ou server??
    (me)quoi upgrade?? qui pou upgrade la dans?? 1 windows server 2008 r2??windows 7 on vmware..pas p comprend la!!!

    (me) OK merci pou ou gentilles alors.
    I came home and made the connection!! The only thing what they should have done is only to point my DNS toward my server itself and the default gateway blank.
    Pfffff at the end of the month i must pay for that!!!! super c pays….

  • Hi @joachim.

    Definitely, we can’t say that you had a nice and productive experience with the technicians, but I have no idea why you have associated the country with this “misadventure”, I quote :

    “super c pays….”

    I don’t think that it is a good idea (and meaningful) to put the country to blame for anything that happen to you.

    Anyways, thanks for your comment.

    The problem is not the technician. The problem is with MT. MT is making so much money but still doesnt provide proper training to these employees and the latter themselves know how they have to get things working.

    Hi everybody my story is different but it will surely  help you decide buying a phone from MT. I bought an Alcatel OT-280 from MT 2 yrs ago at orange expo. Its a nice little phone but after warranty period is over don’t be surprised if you don’t get spare parts. Actually i have the  electrical film strip damaged.

    So I decided to call all phone repair shop and find out its availability. Till now no luck. I searched the net and tried to look for phone numbers of orange shop. To my surprise there is no phone number. You have to call orange hotline who in turn call MT for inquiry. I spoke to 2 ladies and both told me I need to go to an orange shop.  I told them i cant go there before speaking to them. I cant waste my time travelling just to hear they cant repair it.

    After several calls to orange and heated discussion they told me there are 4 technical centers and its better I  go there. I saved the travelling Gbay orange shop.

    Later they told me only phone under warranty will be repaired and they have the parts. What if my phone is not under warranty? its good for the dustbin.  Is MT caring for environment? I again asked for phone number and they told me sorry for  technical and after sales there is no phone  number.

    Just think whenever you start a shop and care for after sales the first thing that come in your  mind is to have a phone number, our MT dont  have  phone numbers for  its 18 orange shop!!!!!!!!!!! The love to see you in queue.

    I wanted to know if MT will sell the flex to me and ask the lady about it she replied she dont know i have to go there. We are living in a digital world and can you imagine i have to spare half day for an inquiry that we can do by phone. Why do they sell phones when they have not understood the importance of phone.

    Can anybody help me find out the flex which connect the screen to the PCB of an alcatel OT 280.

    My advice BOYCOTT ORANGE EXPO. Mauritius telecome and Orange  are bunch of Sc…
    Calling 8900 is useless.

    I don’t know what kind of idiots works in Mauritius Telecoms. I called them for the driver for a Beetel modem for windows 7 64 bit as i cannot use LAN to connect the modem. First he said to connect via LAN… Idiot didn’t I said that I cannot use Ethernet port???? The idiot even said to change the windows and put another. He didn’t even know the difference between windows 64 and 32 bit. I have licensed windows but he said to use another windows. well these incompetent people will help us, Mauritians? Furthermore he was saying Mauritius telecoms (Orange) doesn’t import ANY DRIVERS for the said modem. I asked if I could get the website for the manufacturer to download the driver, he said that the manufacturer doesn’t make 64 bit drivers. The question to be asked is where are these modems made? India I guess. Such incompetency in these people working for mt is unbelievable. Every time I call them I get frustrated as they mostly don’t know what their job is. After connecting it through Ethernet port temporarily, I tested the connection speed. Big surprise… I am getting charged for a 1M ADSL unlimited connection but on 20 tests I got no more than 308 KBPS!!!
    Guess what… I called MT again. They took the complaint with great difficulty as that person was trying to say that my PC was not good.Well a 2 week 64 bit PC not good for their connection. Anyway they registered a complaint. After 2 days a technician called. I did the speed test again. When I told him I am getting 288 KBPS, he said that this is what I will get for a 1M ADSL… He didn’t even know what kilobyte and megabyte is… Well Come on Orange, Stop ripping Mauritians.

    im not on the side of MT but as far as i know you pay for the installation 2000 and why you said ~Pfffff at the end of the month i must pay for that~
    if you have your own server MT Tech wont touch it MY FRIEND

  • My encounter with MT staffs..called the shop yesterday since am acquiring a My-T box. Told them i had been waiting for 3 weeks now and no one call me for the installation due to some technical problems on the area telephone line. Assuring me ki someone will defo call me..then i asked but am back to work on monday till friday..and will be home on weekends can’t they do the job..the operator reply me ..u will have to pay for the MT guys overtime since they usually dont work on saturday!!!..why should we working class citizens pay for MT overtime!!!

    Call them couple of days back because had slow connection from 7pm-11pm.
    They told me because there are too many users right now.

    WTF is that ?
    Does it mean am paying for a connection which I cant use properly.
    Does it mean am paying for some other guys ?
    Does it mean MT is unable to provide proper services ?
    Does it mean that this can be considered as a fraud ?
