Is ADSL Login tied to one line

This is probably a very silly question but I will soon be setting up a friend with ADSL from PlusNet (very light user so should fit in well Smiley ) and i was wondering whether I could set up her router on my line with her PlusNet login and make sure everything is working properly before going over to get her on line

Technically this should work. However, the account is not activated on Plusnet's side until either BT confirm completion of the work, or until the customer attempts to log on to the service.

So if you set it up and attempt to login to the other connection from your own line, this would prompt Plusnet to enable the account their end and initiate billing etc...

You can logon to any connection on the same realm as you from an ADSL line.

Thanks Liam
Your second point is very helpful as I can get everything set up and working before driving over to set the computer up properly
