Re: slow laggy internet in watsonville
I've checked your line readings, and we're seeing really low readings - signal strength is low, both down and upstream. There's most likely some exposed wiring or the like somewhere on the outside lines that was aggravated by the rain; I'll have a tech call to troubleshoot further.
Seems like the new run of phone wire to the modem fixed the issues with the slow/laggy internet...
I used the same 4x24 gauge solid core phone wire, left over from the spool that I got to run to the modem b4... I couldn't find any breaks or exposed wire in the old run to the modem. Figured it would be easier to just run the new wire vs cutting it back and recrimping a connector, reconnecting it to the box outside.. No telling for sure what happened.
I may have tweaked the plug end at the modem when unplugging it till the T-storm passed or we got a surge from the t-storm..
One of my nephews xbox360's refused to power up after plugging it back into power/post T-storm.
Their xbox's were the last electronics to be unplugged between thunder claps... If we did get a surge from the T-strom, I'm glad I wasn't holding the power cable for the xbox's when it happened lol..
Anywhoo.. Thanks again for the help.
Sorry about the Xbox, otherwise sounds good!
