[Connectivity] Arrggg.. Down in Greenville NC (resolved)

Down here again in Greenville, NC.

Sure wish there was a way to know when they were going to be performing maint. or whatever they are doing at 12am at night.

Was right in the middle of watching netflix.

Tethered to my xoom right now, wish I had gotten the 4G upgrade on it, this 3G stuff reminds me of dialup.

Anyway, blah, I want my internet...

Re: [Connectivity] Arrggg

Doing some poking around, it might not just be my area that is down, and this might not be planned. As far as I can see, I can't get into the SL network in my area from Level3

Well, I can trace to the test site I use a lot, so thats not down. Maybe its just my area offline for whatever work they are doing.

66.76.168.20 is the IP in question. Not sure where it's located.

Looking over my modem, I see some changes. Looks like the channel ID names/numbers are different. They used to be like in the 200s, and now they are 5,6,7 and 8. These are the downstream channels.

Don't really know if this is significant.

Wow, yep my connection dropped a few times last night. Now my downstream bandwidth is horrid, about a quarter of the 50. Upstream is fine as usual...

I was testing mine and it seemed ok. Maybe everyone was waking up and testing, hoping for a free gift.

I keep hoping to see 8 channels bonded, or maybe a few more up...

It was another scheduled maintenance last night. Maybe it was the links that SD L3Tech was talking about a while back ago. Maybe SDL L3Tech knows what the maintenance was for lastnight.

I don't remember if it was cox, or another isp I had in the past, but they had a website, that showed future maint. windows and also current status of the network.

Wish we had something like that.

Re: [Connectivity] Arrggg.. Down in Greenville NC

Yeah my channel IDs and numbers changed also like Gator mentioned. They are in the 5, 6, 7, 8 range instead of the 200's range like they used to be.

Also Chubbzie, yeah my download speeds when testing them also seem kinda crappy. Like you, my upstream is good like usual, but my downstream are another story. Here are some speed tests I took today.

I haven't done any speedtest.net tests today, been on my laptop all day, maybe I need to go try some. I have been doing tests on my laptop, on the SL test site I listed above and been getting in the mid 40s which is normal for the laptop.

BTW when you want to post images in a message, if you put the [img] tag in the front and [/img] at the end, the images will show up and not have to be clicked to see. As you can see in my quoted text of yours, I added the tags, and poof, images.

Just checked, my channel ID's also changed from 200 - 203 to 21 - 24. My downstream bandwidth appears to be back to normal now.

So Chubbzie, your not having any problems with your downstream anymore like you did earlier today?
