Just over the last few months I've been having major issues with it. I use Google Talk to talk to my fiancee while she's away at college, but over the past month, I can't even use it. Even though my download speeds are about 3-4kb/s and upload is around 8kb/s according to a few speed tests. I used to be able to use Google Talk just fine. Even though it would stutter once in a while, it was very usable. Now I can't use it at all and it even seems like it bogs down my connection after attempting to use it.
Then there are the bad DNS issues. It seems like every 10 minutes or so, I get these stupid DNS error pages when browsing the web. They just seem to appear at random times.
Steps I have taken to solve this
Tried a new modem...same problem
Tried a different phone cord...same problem
Tried a different computer...same problem
Went outside and tested it in the box itself...same problem
Contacted the phone company for line noise issues...no issues found
Contacted ISP...claims there are no problems on their end and no one else seems to have complained of any issues
So...I'm at a big loss right now. I have no DSL access out here, cable is too expensive ATM... satellite is even a worse choice...and I don't have or plan on getting a cell phone. So, is there anything I'm missing or I could try to figure out what is going on? I would definitely appreciate some feedback.
