[Internet] Major Internet outage

Looks like service is down, at least in Indianapolis. Also (verified via T-Mobile connection) all Brighthouse.com web sites are timing out, so no way to look for a verified outage.

I think it's out there in the 'cloud' somewhere ... different results between BHN and T-mobile. I can reach google.com via t-mobile but not other things that I can reach from BHN.

Even tried alternate DNS servers to no avail. Routing issues, I think. poor packets hitting a dead router. little buggers never had a chance

I talked to Time Warner business fiber support about 20 minutes ago and got confirmation that there's a nationwide outage. Bright House might still be using the Time Warner network, and that could explain the outage.

Sure it's not your browser loading a cached page? Because I'm down across the board on all of the sites you mentioned.

Most definitely not. I'm chatting with a friend on Facebook in spring hill also on bright house who is experiencing the same problems.

There have been some DDoS attacks going on the past few days, may have something to do with it. Or someone just cut a fiber line while digging. Either way.....poo

A single cut fiber line wouldn't shut down the ISP nationwide, I just got the first report that there might be a DDoS going on against Time Warner. The ability to saturate an ISP's entire network nationwide is unprecedented, but certainly within the realm of plausibility.

I emphasize this is only a theory right now, and will update if/when I get more info.

Is it sick that I am pleased as punch that Bay News 9 is down too?

In Pinellas County, I cannot get anywhere with Bright House, I'm on AT&T LTE and eternal hold with Bright House. Who want me to unplug and plug back in my router. Naturally.

Yeah, I know. was just hopeing it was something "simple" the DDoS attacks over the past few days have been nasty ones. brought Blizzard to its knees for a day, along with Sony and others, including Twitch. Was just hoping that particular spray nozzle wasnt pointed this way

It seems the answer to everything is unplug and plug back in. The 6 tuner DVR thread is filled with issues and that's the only fix, not a software fix to make the software more stable.

Back up here. Things are rather sketchy but there is a network.

Oh yeah, and tech support answered as soon as I got connection. She had just started her shift and I really hope she doesn't have a no good, awful, horrible day. That poor, poor girl.

Thought it was DNS, tried multiple servers. At 5-6am, I could reach many sites but not google. Thought they were blocking chromecast. Then by 7am it was back. Really glad this was posted here.

Yeah, I feel sorry for their support staff today. Everything is starting to come back up here, and now I'm gonna have to spend the rest of my day explaining to my 9 bosses why I'm going to have to either shut down their computers in the middle of the day to run server updates or why I'm going to have to come in at 0400 again tomorrow (today was supposed to be my server maintenance morning).
