Radio Silence - the ending?

| | Comments (4)
So I stayed home from work this morning so a Telstra tech could come and look at our lines.  He turned up about 10:30 and went downstairs and ran some tests on the line.  Then he said he was done, he was going back to the exchange, he thought the problem was there, and we'd get a call later from our ISP.

er. OK.

So Stu did get a call later to say that the problem had been fixed.

er.  OK.

Got home.  No internet.  Go and reboot the router.

OMG!!! INTERWEBS!!!

Well sort of.  The modem came up, link came up, but couldn't get to web pages.  Tried pinging something.  It worked.  And then the web did too.  Go figure.

No idea of our line speed is any good.  But I did do an FTP download of some files, that come down around 400kbytes/sec, so I suppose that's ok.  

Here's hoping it stays working.

Maybe we'll fill out our eCensus tonight.  8 days to go peoples! :)
