Re: Frontier Down in West Virginia?

Well I'm over here in Toledo, Ohio and having all kinds of fun. Where i'm not down, but having issues with DNS like crazy. Some sites work (this is now) and some don't respond or are not found. First thought was a trojan or something (scanning just in case), but man, slow speeds, sites not resolving the names, etc..

Guess I'll wait it out for the night. It happened before not long ago and cleared up later during the night...

That is exactly why I started using OpenDNS several months ago. If the re-home into Ashburn is permanent I may change back to Frontier DNS.

Well actually I've been using alternative DNS servers (and changed back to Frontier's just to see if things worked), just won't resolve names and right now very slow internet. This happened before a few days ago (dns problems, slow speeds) but it resolved itself later in the night.

Have to make up a list of some good reliable DNS Servers and keep them handy.

Edit:

Here's my connection log from my router/modem - it's a mess. Not sure with all the weird names come from though. (this is part of a huge log):

Appears that is may not be a DNS problem per say, but a latency issue.

Ah okay, yeah could be. Just know that it is slow. For a bit I couldn't even reach this page (name wouldn't be resolved). But so far seems to be working ok. Least I can go to websites now. Course speeds are still slow, but I'm sure they get back to normal soon.

Thanks for the info.

I have Frontier, but two blocks south of me they have AT&T (my friend who lives a mile south of me has AT&T). We have access to Buckeye Cable (we use it for TV).

Milton, WV here. DSL went out last monday night. I had just gotten it back on that Friday after a previous week outage. Internet light is red. POTS works. I'm the only one (that I know of) in my neighborhood without access. They gave 2 week ETA on getting it fixed. I've lost close to 2k in work already. Just got the ticket escalated on Saturday.

Upgraded to the 25mbps, and it's great... when it's on.
