Re: DSL problem

I hear everyone saying "server" is down. I don't hear "router" is down??? DSL is supplied by routers. Your service like DNS, mail, ftp, web etc is supplied by a server. To just test a little, change your DNS server in your internet setup to something like and see what services (email, web, ftp) are there or not. Do not change your "router".

When others had problems with mail etc I didn't. I use the above server IP (its mine) to avoid the mexico problems.

If the speed of the router is slow, I've never seen that! They may have a router out somewhere, but that would no allow any service. I never use a "mx" email, because their servers suck.

To see if their routers are screwed up, Look for "ping" software and test it to something like the IP above. If it does not come back or has large numbers like .002 seconds then the router is fine. that number could go as high as .100 seconds and still be viable. If that number is greater than a second, then they have throttled back your service.

I'll be curious to see the results.
