So there was a blackout two nights ago in my neighborhood that lasted for like five hours or so.
The following day, I can only get certain high traffic websites on my internet—Netflix, Google, Youtube, Yahoo, Facebook and perhaps some others, and they come through perfectly fine. But If I try to access any run of the mill sites, they hang and then I get told I don’t have an internet connection. No QBN either :( Have to rely on cellular.
Happens on all devices plugged in or not. I did a factory reset kn my router, flushed my DNS registries, made sure there was no parental guidance filters etc. Nothing seems to fix it. The tech from Spectrum Internet isn’t coming for another god damn week.
Anyone experienced anything similar to this?
Yesterday many videos on Youtube were showing up blank. And Gmail was behaving slow.
- that with the blank youtube videos s a known problem and has an easy solution.oey_oey
- No, it was only yesterday, the videos would not load. And on force reload, there was a server timeout and a error message.utopian
- ah! I see, I thought it was with a white screen instead of the videos, sorry.oey_oey
And so it begins...
What's the opposite of net neutrality?
Youv'e done all the things I'd suspect need doing. Do you have any neighbours you know of using the same service? Can you check with them what theirs is like?
What DNS are you using? If you're using your ISP's, try to use cloudflares:
Did you try to trace route or ping?
Did you try turning the computer on and off sir?
Two nights ago? Weird same internet issue happened here. I couldn’t get to any sites to look at anything for what we were planning, but I could get access to most .gov or .edu sites with instant speed.
