Once again, the network is operational again. For now. It seems the signal strength from Comcast/Xfinity is about as good as BP's fixes for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Which is why I switched to Verizon FIOS in January when my Comcast contract expired! I was even paying for a Business Line which is supposed to be back up and running within 24 hours, it took them 4 days and they were STILL giving me the run around! I called Verizon and they did the switch over no problem! Knocking on wood here, but I have not had a single problem since switching! I even went internet phone with Verizon and even it works perfectly, kept my old number and everything. Cost is down over all but only just slightly until you realize I no longer pay the local phone company, then that is the majority of the money I save every month. Verizon REQUIRES a box at every tv, even internet ready tv's will not work without a box. Boxes are cheap though, only a few bucks per month. But DEFINITELY do your homework before switching, you need to find the right deals because they do not offer, you MUST ask! I got the $99.00 a month for all three deal for one year, then the costs go up to the normal amount, which is about $99.00 a month! I have heard though that since there is no Verizon Office in my town that billing problems can be a problem, I have not had a problem so can't say. But I did make a change in my service right away, I got the multi-room dvr and instead wanted a dvr in each room, they overnight shipped me a new cable box and even put a sticker in the box to ship the old cable box for free. Easy peasy!!

It looks like the number of TCP connections is being capped. The question now is whether the problem is Apache, the firewall, or Comcast.

It looks like the number of TCP connections is being capped. The question now is whether the limit is imposed by Apache, the firewall, or Comcast.

OK -- it seemed like that -- perhaps there is a bit of a morning traffic jam going on as well (problem was quite bad during the morning and is quite a bit better now).

I am definitely biased but think Comcast! Besides unless you have been 'tweaking' again, what else could it be? The website is MUCH more responsive now, so whatever it was it seems to be working properly again.

I made a tweak to Apache and it seems to be much more responsive as soon as I restarted it, so I don't think Comcast was causing the problem. Now I need to get the source since I can't increase the limit any further without recompiling Apache.
