ISP Issues Explained

Currently, I am connected to the internet through a wireless provider using the 2.4 GHz spectrum. A problem in recent history has surfaced that totally knocks my ISP and I offline for 3 to 15 minutes between the hours of 5 PM and 9 PM. Usually, this happens multiple times during that period. My ISP has discovered that "someone" is transmitting upwards of 100 W of power crossing my house and also hitting my ISP’s relay station, totally knocking them both down. The maximum output that is authorized is only 4 W.

Progress is being made and hopefully, after discovering who is actually doing this, the FCC will be notified and the problem corrected. Until that time, I must suffer through random dropouts and failed connection attempts.

The good news? Since I am unable to play Asherons Call 2 for any real length of time, I have more time to geek. Several articles are in progress and a new (unrelated) Rant will be posted this weekend.
