Telephone Problem - NO DIAL TONE
NO DIAL TONE is one of the common issue, before complaining to Etisalat please check following things because if there is any fault in your side, else you will receive 50 - 250 AED charge if fault is from your side.
Check the lights on the ONT (the Etisalat fiber optic box). If there is no light in the ONT or if there is only power light or if there is red light on OPTICAL/LOS indicator or if OPTICAL/ PON/ LINK/ WAN/CONFIG indicator is blinking, then please TURN OFF AND TURN ON the ONT and wait for 3 minute. If still there is same issue as describe before, you must register your complaint by calling 101. They will send their engineers to fix the problem.
No light in Optical LED => Configuration issue from ISP or ONT is faulty
Red light in Optical LED => Fiber link is broken
