[Northeast] Northern Virginia/DC Area issues with FIOS Internet
I'm curious if others are having issues in this area. We had a bad storm last week, and since then, I can't keep an active internet connection at all. It drops off constantly. At first, I thought it might be OSX Mountain Lion (my mother and I both have Macs) but, I took my Mac to my boyfriend's house and it works fine.
On a secondary note, we had a Tivo unit with CableCard for TV then decided to go back to the Verizon HD DVR. I brought it home yesterday, but it couldn't be activated. Guy came out today, activated it, and my mom mentioned the internet issues. He upgraded the router to the new one (I don't know the exact model, but it's red). Things worked fine for a bit, but now the dropping is happening again. Earlier, television was pixelated and audio was bad. Verizon reset the box and that appears better.
The reason for the activation issue on the box yesterday was that the entire system went down where they couldn't validate user accounts. But today Verizon is saying there are no issues.
Is anyone else having similar issues? My mother is now trying to log directly into the Verizon router to see if that solves the problem (we had an Airport Extreme off the router). But am still curious if anyone else is experiencing these drop offs? Thanks in advance!
