Cable modem in!

2001-01-10 18:33:06+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Yay! Dan has bandwidth at home! (kinda) The power came back on just in time, the installation guy figured out that the terminator was actually at my house and not up on the pole, and when I can get throughput I get 390k/second (yow!), but there seems to be some flakeyness that's giving me roughly 80% packet loss on long-term pings to the gateway, so they've promised yet another trek out here to re-run some cable. So the initial report was overoptimistic and I'm typing this on the Ricochet again.

Came back and tried again this afternoon. Workin' kinda better. Boy, the @Home home page where they encourage you to watch lots of video is not for me. Why would I want TV in a microscopic (Microsoftic) window?
