SLT ADSL Internet Settings for Sri Lanka

If you’re in Sri Lanka, and using Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) ADSL Connection to login to the internet, you’ll have to go through a ton of trouble getting drivers and settings for SLT ADSL as they always come with a price from SLT. Oh! And I hate call center folks in Sri Lanka, because they keep you on hold for hours and return saying it’s not available.

Available Packages

If you need to check whether your are in a SLT ADSL Service area 
click here and enter your Telephone Number.

Username / Password

All Usernames begin with the two character area code, followed by your Telephone number and an @ sign (Yes, Like an Email Address) followed by a domain name depending on the connection package you have selected. If its Home Express, Your username will end in @ If it’s a Broadband Package it will end as @
Eg. ak 2238899 @ / ak 2238899 @

In older connections, password will be your telephone number without any other codes. Newer connections have strong passwords like h65$%@BS or eg524%#@.
