We've been experiencing connectivity issues with our DSL for the past two days. It has seriously crimped my blogging activity. How rude.
The connection cuts in and out, the middle bright green on the modem flashing slow and then fast and then steady, repeating the sequence over and over. We've done the usual: power down, unplug and replug everything, smack the modem, curse, waste 30 minutes of life on the phone with technical support, give up and do something else.
This evening, I unplugged the one phone we have to see if that had an effect. Sweet success! We've had a great internet connection all evening.
But now what? Is it the phone? Is it the cord? Is it the DSL filter? Is it the phone jack? Is it something else I'm not yet thinking of?
I'm not much in the mood for the tedious process of elimination required to track down the problem. I'm more inclined just to keep the phone unplugged. It's actually rather peaceful.
PS: I'm not the only one who is smitten!
