I've had problems since my DSL was installed 8 days ago, where I simply
couldn't connect. It started out happening more in the evening, but
then it started happening all the time.
The line was supposed to be 1.5 Mbps up, 128 Kbps down.
The Covad second level support guy said that there were too many errors
and link kept being dropped (I think ... something along those lines ...
I didn't take great notes, sorry). So, he capped the line at 928 Kbps.
This does seem to have worked. The line wasn't working when he first
called, and after he did this, it's now working fine. (I haven't redone
speed tests yet.)
So my question after all this rambling is . . . is this sort of thing
unheard of, or is it just uncommon (or, heck, is it common ;-) ??? Any
