This is a sub-selection from Massive Slowdowns?

Re: Massive Slowdowns?

You're not the only one koolkid. Bozeman's having the same problems at the moment.

My modem goes down about once every 30 minutes for 10 seconds at a time. Reconnects back to the network and works again.

Pings are bouncy... very bouncy. Ranging from 100-800ms within seconds. Download / upload speeds on Sunday were 1.2mb/s down and 0.2mb/s up.

The Bresnan tech support said this is related to an upgrade they did last week. Their engineers are working on the problem, but they didn't have an ETA on the fix. Quite honestly, Bresnan was working better than normal for the past 4-5 months. Now we're back at square 1 again.

If it's still happening by Tuesday night, I'll be calling and asking for a refund for the month.

Everything's fine here. I know my SSH server on my router has been getting nailed lately. Anyone else finding this in their logs?

The large problems have went away. I'm still dealing with internet disconnects once every 30 minutes for 10-15 seconds each. The modem itself has the logs associated with it. Not sure if this is something on only my end, or on Bresnan's end.

When the modem reboots or reconnects does it change frequencies/channels?

2010-11-29 01:49:06 3-Critical D003.0 DHCP FAILED - Requested Info not supported.
2010-11-29 01:48:57 3-Critical R002.0 No Ranging Response received - T3 time-out (US 3)

That is the error i get. I'll have to to try and view the frequency / channel next time I see it go. Can a DD-WRT firmware from a router cause this?

Powell, WY
Not likely, DHCP failed is probably the modem attempting to renew it's own local 10.x.x.x address, I forget exactly what the T3 timeout is but it isn't on your local side.
