Weird website activity...

isitdownforeveryone is reporting that www.supernews.com is UP, yet I can't get to it on OOL. I've changed my DNS and it still doesn't see it.

What's up with that!

I just was able to login to Steam, granted it did take much longer than usual. I'm not going to play any games right now though.

Actually I just remembered that not an hour ago, I was having trouble staying signed into Windows Live Messenger. It would keep disconnecting for unknown reasons. Maybe this is why.

People in Connecticut are having issues, myself included. Can't watch 360p you tube videos without pauses.

Me neither (in Bronxville) .... I was getting around 3Mbps/8Mbps up/down earlier (on Boost+), but now it's not doing anything.

Although I just did it and could load it and got this:



Ugh!

I have the same issues as you, aim.com does not work, aventalearning.com does not work and so as www.animeshippuuden.com/watch these are a few site I was pinging and found out about these issues. This is a optimum problem and not ours. I contacted support but they want me to reboot my modem in order to escalate the issue to higher engineers, I disagreed because the issue will fix itself after a few hours this ain't the first time this has occurred. Have a great day guys and sorry for my hasty post, there must be a ton of errors lol. Sorry.

Very slow download here now and some sites take more than one try to even load. Upload speed seems fine.
This is on Boost+.

Seems to be better now. Maybe it was just maintenance or something.

Netflix, xbox live have been unreachable for me on Ultra all evening. HTTP has been working as normal - protocol dependent filtering?

Well I got an (automated) phone call last week friday saying they were gonna be doing work in my area and to visit:

»www.optimum.net/support/network

It doesn't give specifics but i didn't experience any outages over the weekend (modem hasn't rebooted yet) so I dunno if they did it yet or just starting now.

As for the OP, using BOOL at work and it works fine for that site and all the normal ones I visit.

Cablevision is working on resolving the issue. You could contact them with a traceroute & the affected site to have the specific case escalated.

To run a traceroute:
start > run (or "search programs" box) > type cmd
type: tracert www.sitename.com

if on a mac, go to the HD > Applications > Utilities > Terminal
type: traceroute www.sitename.com

edit: They no longer need any examples.

Same issues here. I'm unable to get to many websites, CNN, Yahoo, Facebook, Apple, MacRumors. There's something majorly wrong going on.

What a disaster. Is anyone @ OOL even aware of or working on this problem?

Same here. I thought it was just all european addresses, but now I can connect to some UK sites, but not others. I can get on my friend's teamspeak box in london but not the BBC website.

Have about 10 systems here at a work with a 2 OOL modems and a DUAL-WAN router and definitely getting loading issues. Did some CNN or Yahoo or Neowin.net and other tech places and they stall out. Was trying to read a story from Chicagotribune and that just stalled out on me.

Boss just called me as he was trying to go to Connecticut Post's site and it just timed out there.

For me in CT I can only advance a couple of pages before things stall. Particularly dynamic pages. Yahoo is not letting me advance as well as Facebook.

CV doesn't need any more examples at this time, so you don't need to report it to them if that was the only reason for your call.
