Crazy wind (they say 55mph "gusts," but the baseline wind was 45mph) and temperature drop yesterday, so we weren't surprised that the ADSL was flapping all day. Complained, complained, complained... AT&T's diagnostic was uninformative, other than to tell us they had auto-updated the firmware to close the root exploit, and to tell us that we needed to schedule an "in-home tech." I was all set to grab the router-modem thingy and stomp into the AT&T store in person, but Carl went out and punched down one of the punchdowns a little harder.
And hey, it hasn't dropped since.
Maybe we should have done that a long time ago.
