Verizon DSL Line Monitors - Free

Justin has given us the ability to group line monitors together for the purposes of looking at single ISP. Members of a group get free, as in no TP deduction, line monitoring services for now.

This is where you need to go to get setup & sign on:

* Sign-Up * .

Make sure when you're done to click "Create Monitor".

You need to be "pingable" . This is important!

There is no need for third party software - if your IP changes, you can always edit your monitor to reflect the new IP.

You just need to do 2 things:

1) enter IP in the static IP box AND 2) check the "dynamic" box. You must do both.

Make sure you also go to »/prefs/flair and select "SECTION My home connection" and enter the info there. It will appear by your graph so that others will know what service, etc you have.

When you have your monitor all set up and working, send me an IM asking for an invite to the group you want to join. Make sure you are logged into the site to get the invite. Click on the invite, then click on the link in the invite and accept.

Your graph will appear here:

Verizon DSL Line Monitors

I will be putting a link for our Line Monitor Group in the forum's side bar links.

Edit: »Line Monitoring FAQ

So...Who wants to go first?

Isn't staying pingable for a long time (as opposed to just for a quick line quality or tweak test) a security risk? Also, how many on Verizon DSL have static IPs---mine seems to change at least every week---and I'm not sure I'd notice right away .

A lot of us have been doing line monitoring for ages and being pingable has not been a security risk. Also you do not have to have a static IP address in order to do line monitoring. There are Line Monitoring Groups in many of the ISP forums as well some of the regional chat forums.

Take a look at the FAQ I linked to. It will explain all this.

Here is the link to the FAQ again:

Thanks, sashwa, good to know. Although I'm not experiencing serious slowdowns, just erratic speeds, your post motivated me to do a line quality test, and there was that same pesky router that's plagued us for ages, despite VZ's assurance months ago that it was being addressed:
130.81.20.179 39%

It will be interesting to see if that router pops up a lot in the reports from this new service! And, if problem routers are identified, if VZ is a bit more proactive in addressing them.

Thanks Justin for the service, as well.
