My internet (AT&T DSL) got weird a few hours ago this morning, and is still struggling. I went through a long list of stuff with a tech, who is sending out a new modem. Here's what's happening. Certain sites are loading fine, while others just time out to the "The connection has timed out" message. [more inside]
I'm trying to set up internet service at my apartment. AT&T's downstream is abysmally bad for what they charge – 3 mbps for a lousy $30 per month. Comcast is better, but possibly more evil, and there are a lot of confusing legal riders in the contract that make me scared. Help! [more inside]
Should we use Charter or AT&T? [more inside]
I'm moving to a new apartment in Louisville, KY and I need to decide on some sort of internet package. AT&T is apparently what most people in the area choose, so I've been looking at their options. I think that I might want either their DSL XTREME or DSL XTREME 6.0 but I don't want to pay for more than I need. I need to be able to download and upload music and videos, and I stream a lot of television shows and movies through Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming sites. I also need to be able to use Skype. Which option would be the better one?
How do I get the best price from my ISP? [more inside]
I have ATT Wi-Fi Internet (not U-Verse). And I've been running into connectivity issues with the 2WIRE modem that have been plaguing me consistently for the last year. More inside, but just an FYI, I have a Mac. [more inside]
Trying to pick an ISP in Savannah, GA. Looking for recommendations other than AT&T. I do a lot of online gaming and netflix streaming, so I'd like something reasonably fast. [more inside]
Should I jump ship from AT&T DSL to Charter Internet, and if so, what should I be aware of? [more inside]
Please help me avoid calling AT&T tech support. Question about setting up modem for new Internet-only service from AT&T. [more inside]
I'm moving to a new apartment at the end of the month, and need to move my AT&T U-Verse High Speed Internet Pro service. Their website is very confusing. [more inside]
How fast do I need my Internet connection to be? [more inside]
So how does U-Verse's internet service compare to Comcast's? Not in print, where they're identical, but in reality? [more inside]
Just switched to AT&T "Elite" Internet service from Comcast cable modem in a cost saving measure. AT&T promises download speeds of 3-6M Bps for this service (as opposed to 2-3 for their Pro service, which is a few bucks cheaper), but I'm only seeing a whisker above 3. Is this normal? Anything I can do? [more inside]
My DSL modem is fried and out of warrantee.
SNET SBC AT&T wants $100 for me to buy a new one, or they'll give me a free one if I sign a new contract. I'll likely be moving in three months, and a hundred dollars is pretty pricey when I can find used ones on eBay for less than twenty. I'm pretty technical, but the problem is that I don't know G.DMT, G.Lite, or T1.413 from a hole in the ground. What requirements should I look for in a DSL modem to be sure that it's compatible? (I'm in Connecticut.)
