Re: [TWC] TWC DNS servers dont respond after awake from sleep

That flood protection is terrible.

100.1 usually means the modem is in bridge.
1.1/0.1 is acting as a gateway.

I bet $20 your problem is fixed.

It must be crappy. With all the port scans I get on TWC(not sure why I didn't get them on Verizon, though TWC is otherwise better), enabling it on my Cisco equipment provides quite a performance boost. My guess is it's not allowing these to flood currently open connections. Of course, if it gets overloaded, I could see it degrading the performance or causing a reboot. I guess that is the difference between crappy and good equipment, among several other factors.
A fool thinks they know everything.

A wise person knows enough to know they couldn't possibly know everything.

There are zealots for every OS, like every religion. They do not represent the majority of users for either.
