i dunno if this will help anyone, but @home , at least in the bay area, doesnt use static IPs anymore, thats why my router with its configured IP didn't work for a week after everyone else got their connection back. had to remove the settings =P

The problems starts again. I am again configuring my DNS manually. Ipconfig shows that I am on the attbi network but oddly enough the default DNS just won't work.

....sigh....


Anyone else *still* having problems?

This is pretty strange, one of my coworkes had DNS troubles from day one, I on the other hand have NEVER had any troubles. I read the DNS numbers out of my SMC router, and pluged them into the DNS servers on each of my systems. Not sure where the Barricade came up with the numbers but they sure are working.

63.240.76.4

if anybody else want to try them.

in iowa on mediacom@home, i have had zero(0) problems.

today though, i was out for a bit, first i could ping my gateway but not my dns servers...then the gateway disappeared.....hour or two later it was working again...but i dont know if it was in relation to the excite@home fiasco....cable does got out for other reasons.

i gotta call them up and get a credit...i dont like being charged for an unreliable connection

and it was RIGHT when i had reinstalled win2k so i was downloading important stuff....it just had to wait

all is good now :D
