yea ive been with comcast since 01 i think well they were time warner at the time. just recently they have been giving all sorts of trouble. I mean yea i would have to call them atleast twice a year, but that is way better then calling them daily for the last couple months.



i mean look at it now



and even at this speed ill still have hiccups, its like something is disconnecting it for a millisecond. ROFL as i was typing this i lost connection to aim and ventrilo.

You know last time that happened to me. I just took my modem into the little comcast store thing. ..and told them I talked to someone on the phone that told me to trade it in for a new one. They gave me a newer, better modem, and it solved the problem.

...you may want to try the same trick before giving up on them.

Well they actually came out here yesterday and finally replaced a node that had been going bad since the hurricane hit like 2 years ago. Which solved my final bandwidth problem.

You know it also occurs to me a close friend had a connection issue with comcast. They sent multiple crews out there. Replaced his wiring, gave him all new equipment. No difference, a month later they found out the little hub in his complex had been sitting in 3 feet of water for god only knows how long.

Are any of your neighbors experiencing similar issues?

See the problem i was experiencing around nov to about jan a friend of mine was having the same issues i was when i would get bad ping spikes, i called every single day till they kept sending their guys and other people to the nod sites and finally they got it fixed, all was gravy and now this happens. I get my power fixed tomorrow morning we will see with that. because they have done some digging in my backyard and i think nicked a ground wire, so my lights dim when washing machine and other appliances get turned on.

I am going to hit them with, you guys have one more chance to make this work for me... If not i am out of here. Hate to do it but i am sick of it.

Also i just noticed you live in houston, what part?

Time warner had a habit of cutting service late at night which annoyed me at the time because I was doing most my transfers and ftp'ing at night.
I actually think a lot of the problems comcast has, is because they never bothered to update a lot of the old time warner equipment which is now starting to develop problems.

Lets see what they do when i hit them with this threat. I am going to tell them they better run new wires everywhere like i am a brand new customer and act like there was no pre existing wires to work off of.
