Re: [Rant] Comcast Maintenance at 2am ends in null-routed subnet
If your line goes out, but comes back within 5 minutes, thats a normal maintenance window.
If your line goes out, and stays out the entire day, and the entire subnet you are on cannot route *anywhere* FROM *anywhere* this is a wholly different problem.
Someone typoed a routing table update. The modem never flashed any new firmware; The internet works fine once I changed the MAC address on the router to force a new DHCP IP.
possibly but its unsual for that to happen and no one to notice in the company. broken hardware on comcast's end comes to mind, or something physical thats wrong.
Definitely unusual, but, it did happen, and its definitely on Comcast's end. If a packet to a subnet dies at the core router, yeah, the routing table is messed up.
well lets just hope it gets fixed soon before something else happens
