The power is back on, and the network is now up as well.
For the next week or so, Collatz will be testing an alternate Internet provider. That means that the IP address has changed so you will need to restart your BOINC client in order to upload your results and get more work. I would appreciate any feedback as to how well the new connection is working or not working, whichever the case may be.

To quote Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace:

It's working! It's working!

Working fine here with me. No delays or whatsoever.
I missed Collatz. It's the only project for my GPU, so now I can let my GPU crunch some numbers again. (I don't have a GPU supporting double precision, which is needed for MilkyWay)

Thumbs up!

66+ tasks on the one laptop uploaded seamlessly and the new tasks download quickly as well. No bandwidth delays that I could notice and I am, theoretically, 10Mbps/1Mbps down/up.

What about DNETC?

With a 2600, I think he can get a better RAC here than in DNETC.

That is what I did, tested DNETC and then brought back the cards that get more credits here. It turns out in my case my Nvidia cards are MUCH better here, while my ATI cards are better there. This has nothing to say about which 'science project' is better! I do not have any dual precision cards so MilkyWay is out for me, limiting my overall choices by one.

I am glad you are back up and running, I hope it is for good this time!!

It all depends... When I ordered the service, I explained I would be hosting a web server and would need a static IP address. No problem (for a small fee). The sales contact said nothing about acceptable use, shipped the equipment, and billied my credit card. The acceptable use policy however clearly states that no hosting of any type of server is not allowed, especially if it requires constant bandwidth. I've contacted the ISP and asked for a waiver. If I get it, no more switches if the next week and a half go smoothly. Otherwise, I hope Comcast gets their act together. Their service is still down.

Have you tried:

the IP address has changed so you will need to restart your BOINC client in order to upload your results and get more work

Once I'd spotted the advice to restart boinc everything connected smoothly enough and I uploaded several days of work which will be nice in tomorrows stats.

I did not need to restart my client, I think 6.10.56 accounts for that though.

My 4830 was kept busy on Milkyway at least.

After restarting and rebooting all 3 of my machines, one connects fine. 2 do not, and won't even let me navigate to this website - juts give me page not found errors. Resets and detaches don't work???

I now believe that your ISP is blocking connections from some countries.

Any ideas which ones? The more info I have when I contact their tech support, the better.

Maybe they will have a 'business' level account, when I had Comcast they had this and all 'acceptable use' limits are removed under that. NO caps under the Business account, on Comcast, but it was NOT cheap!! It even had a static IP address that came with it, maybe you can ask your new ISP for all this too. So far you have not gone down for me at all since the changeover, every time I have tried to connect your site answered! So looking good from my end!

While everything seems to work OK (except for some countries?) for access into the Collatz server, the reverse access for me trying to get to the Internet is terrible. So long as it is a very short burst of data, it goes OK. Doing a pathping to Google resulted in a 30% packet loss. Five minutes later, even ping timed out. As soon as there is a larger amount of data, it grinds to a total halt. Yesterday morning it worked great. I was getting about 3Mbps down and 1Mbps up. Last night, it took 30 minutes for a mahi mahi recipe web page to load. The speed test web page never finished. It timed out trying to load. This morning, I can't sync my email. The problem may be that the modem/firewall/NAT/router is just too cheap to handle the number of connections and it gives priority to outside in verses inside out.

So what was it this time, the equipment or the ISP looking at the usage.
