At least I’m not alone in my frustrations. I am in Crozet. Comcast problems are being seen in Harrisonburg and Afton. I am able to reach some sites but not others. No pattern, completely arbitrary. Aargh. Thanks Comcast for the “smooth transition” from Adelphia. The HooK has some background on the switch.
Update 11-23-2006: The longer this goes on, the more I wonder why some sites are blocked/inaccessible and others are not. For instance, Rain City Guide is accessible at my office, my neighbor’s via Embarq DSL, but not at my house using Comcast/Adelphia.
Anybody have opinions on DSL offered by Embarq?
And it’s slow.
Update 11-26-2006: Mea culpa. I know better than this. I did tech support years and years ago. Removing my Airport Extreme from the equation fixed the problem. Now … to get a new router. Perhaps one of the new “Draft N” routers?
Update 11-29-2006: I don’t know what the problem is, but on Monday everything was fine. Yesterday, back to the same old problems. I am confounded. Nothing has changed on my end, yet problems persist. I know I am not the only one having problems, as people keep coming here via searches like this – adelphia comcast blocking website and charlottesville adelphia comcast internet problems.
12/4/2006: After all the teeth-grinding and gnashing of teeth, one has to wonder if this is the type of situation that cries out for a corporate blog to answer these questions. Tier 1 tech support is laughable, and this seems like a perfect example of where a corporate blog would do well to respond directly to the customers, who have been talking about them.
