First off, let me apologize for not being more attentive this week. I’m on a course at work and had a few deadlines to sort out. I am catching your comments and e-mails as they come in. I appreciate everything you guys are doing and saying.
If your comments aren’t appearing, you may want to e-mail me (if you can…) and let me know. I’m watching my spam trap like a hawk but am also hoping nothing gets lost in the shuffle. A lot of comments from Talk Talk IPs are trapped for some reason.
Welcome to the Observer and other new arrivals!
Symptoms of a service stuck?
I spent yesterday evening trying to help someone get set up. What confused me was the way the modem renegotiated the connection every 5 minutes.
You could connect to the modem and view its internal statistics for connection time etc. As it reached 5 minutes the connection died, and was restarted.
This means every 5 minutes there’s a break in service for maybe 20 seconds or so, which obviously disrupts whatever you were doing at the time.
Would it be fair of me to suppose that they’re so oversubscribed in this area that they’ve deliberately set the reconnection time down to 5 minutes in a desperate attempt to slightly satisfy all of the people for some of the time?
Or is this some feature I could have disabled at this end?
Hate to say it, but it sounds fairly typical. For some bizarre reason my connection has actually improved since October but that sounds exactly like my problem from a few months ago. (As well as others.)
Talk to Dominic if you know of a solution/cause… or anything!
