Hi,
I have added my IP address for monitoring my Verizon DSL line.

I understand I need an invite to the group.

I neglected to check Dynamic IP when I first entered the monitoring information and it will not permit me to update it.
Please advise how to do so, if necessary.

Thanks!
Richard

Has monitoring gone down? I am showing no data starting at Noon today. Just a blank as of 12:00P, no green or blue lines.

It must be. My graphs cut off at the same time as well.

EDIT: Looks like it should be fixed. »Line Monitor quit recording

Not seeing any monitoring data yet. Do I just need to be more patient?

When you set your Line monitor up did you 1) enter your current IP in the static IP box AND 2) check the "dynamic" box. You must do both.

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

Make sure your router and firewall accepts WAN requests if you are using a router.

In looking at your monitor via the link above, you are not using your current IP address as it's showing IP: 192.168.x.x. You need to use your public IP address. Go here to find out what it is:

»/whois

Enter that in the in the static IP box and then click on Update Monitor at the bottom of the page. Also make sure the "dynamic" box is checked.

Oblivious, just remember that Verizon uses Dynamic IP addresses for residential circuits, unless the policy is different in California. My line monitor due to the fact that my connection has a Dynamic IP is actually tied to a Dynamic DNS, that way my IP address will update accordingly. I'm sure you've done that, but if you have a router managing the DynDNS, it needs to be the router holding the public IP provided from Verizon.

Sorry, but I'm not clear on what I need to do to get monitored.

Don't I need to fill out »/schedule/signup/0 ?

My test records to date are for Earthlink Cable, which I had installed 04-29-10 due to the many disconnects with Verizon DSL that I have been experiencing since February. Therefore, my test records may not be suitable for adding to the VZ group.

At this moment, EL Cable has been down since 11:30am. I did a manual failover to VZ DSL. Eventually, I hope to have a Dual WAN router with load-balancing and automatic failover and to be monitoring both lines.

Yes - complete the info for your Verizon line. The opening post of this thread gives more information on how to do this.

»Verizon DSL Line Monitors - Free

I have no idea how you would set up a dual wan router with load-balancing and auto failover for line monitoring though. You might want to ask about that in our Site Help forum:

Signed up...... thanks a ton.

Started getting disconnects a couple of days ago. Oddly enough my speed when connect had been increased (Verizon working on something?).

2 days on the phone, one visit from a tech at my home/house, and a new modem later........ Same problems.

Although now my old Westel Wirespeed seems to work better then the Westel 6100g they sent out.

And on top of all this, I'm trying to get them to upgrade me to the 3m line.

If they don't get back to me by the end of the day (Verizon tech guys in truck), they want me to start the "phone" process all over again.
