    Chatty - several people on facebook have stated issues with OpenBand's connect. Such as it keeps dropping or is very slow to connect.

    Thanks, Erika. Hmmm, this is a first for me. Don't usually have connection problems. That's why I wondered if it was from mucking around with the virus program yesterday.

    Not sure - one thing I would suggest is that you go to the NID (large box that contains the OpenBand wires). Unplug the black box *media convertor and then plug it back in. This will force your equipment to obtain a new IP from OpenBand and could resolve your connectivity issues.

    Because I know how OB's tech support can be very frustrating and often does not provide any resolution.

    OK, going to reset. Pretty strange.
    Openband isn't answering ANY of their lines.

    All's well...apparently my wireless router is the culprit. Thanks!
