    Not sure.... I can't get DSLReports to come up to do a speed test. I just got back from the tech committee meeting, but I was online most of the day today without problems. I'll try and test somewhere else.

    I tried a couple last night and could not get any to load. I had no other problems with doing anything else last night, connection seemed normal. It's fine today also doing a quick test from work.

    Anyone else having the upload problem again tonight? I've been trying to upload some small files to a server and it kept timing out. Speed tests again time out on the upload test.

    Hi all,

    I am not in broadlands, but connected to Verolan. Eric B. recommended I log in here.

    i am having the same exact issue. The connection works, but any large scale activity causes it to stall. For example, I can not upload files, conduct speedtests, or use streaming media, but I can surf 90% of the time and email is trickling into my server.

    Pretty frustrating, as this is now becoming the norm and this issue needs to be worked out. For the record, I couldn't be happier with Khalil's responsiveness and genuine determination to resolve issues. If these issues can get resolved it is a great service.

    Matt

    Yes - It's exactly the same problem I am having. Anyone else? Time to email Khalil again, see if he can nail this down. Well, that is if I could get Yahoo email to come up which it will not. Can you email him? If he's online mabye he can check this bug out while it's still happening.

    I emailed him with my issues already. He was out to the house today to look at the hardware on my roof and said he uncovered a potential issue. However, since this problem is wide-spread, it must be network related.

    Any one have any details regarding the technical architecture of his network and where this problem might be isolated. I know he briefed the tech committee, so just curious regarding how much detail he provided.

    Yep, whatever he did fixed it. My link is working again. If anyone finds out more about this problem we're having, please share.

    Thats pretty bad. I wonder if the wind has twisted one of the antennaes on the tower, but that would also affect your upload too... . Wonder what he's doing???

    Actually it sounds a lot like the problem i had when the bridge on my roof had water in it. He replaced it 2x, the last time with one encased in an aluminum box instead of plastic. So far so good.
    Water would get into the old plastic ones and mess up the bridge. Let us know if they fix it and what the problem is....Im still looking good this morning:

    Looks like i've taken a step backwards this morning as my connection is worse.

    He thought I might have a short in y bridge, as when he first installed it there were issues. He was here yesterday to replace it, but from his message it sounded like it was repaired not replaced. will call him today to find out what the issue is.

    i've never gotten above 700kbs, even when my connection was at its best, so you are lucky!

    I am ok too. Things looking normal. Don't know about the past week. I have been offline all week. If you have a lynksys router, you may want to try power cycling the router. In the past, I had trouble with it.

    It's back now at 11:15. Not as fast as it was this morning, but working again. I do have a Linksys router, but cycling it has never done anything for this problem.
