Home dsl has been crap while I'm at work, yesterday and today. I got home yesterday and everything was mellow, nothing to debug. The fucked up thing is that pings are fast and there appears to be no packet loss.

PING alethe.net ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=61 time=33.56 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=61 time=30.098 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=61 time=31.394 ms

Doubly fucked up is that the router is showing minimal traffic (via mrtg). This view is upheld by webalizer which shows no upwardly swinging web traffic on any of the machines sitting on the network. Of course, it could be other traffic, but it's not showing up anywhere. Specifically not on the router, which is what everything has to pass through. So...

Mild weirdness is that VNC performs somewhat normally (no, I don't normally run it, but I wanted to check some settings on a windows box).

generic scp seems alright; I'm getting 64KB. Yesterday when I was experiencing otherwise the same problem, I could only get .8KB throughput. rebooting my machine just to feel like I've tried ... something. It had better come back up or I'm going to need to take a long lunch break. ;) [[having alethe.net down has not made access to any of the other machines on the network faster... maybe I'll try rebooting my windows box.]] 112 seconds to go from shutdownnotpingable to awakepingable. restarted the windows box. no change.

If you've got Verizon DSL and decide to call tech support, I hope it doesn't come through to me. Slow throughput calls are fucking horrid.

:heh: no, speakeasy. and it's a "business" line so I have a single point of contact. I should contact them. It's just a double bitch to not be able to be at home to say, cycle the router, or...

chaos.tentacle.net and newt.alethe.net and shout.alethe.net are the three machines behind my router. They were plugged in all in a mishmash--to the router and to a hub to the router. with a switch behind newt.alethe.net serving dhcp.

I powered router, switch, and hub down. disconnected all the cables. reconnected all the cables so that the chaos, newt, and shout all went into the switch which whent into the router. had same problem. noticed I'd plugged internal and external alethe.net into the switch, creating a crazy loop with odd broadcasting and all sorts of pain. Unhooked that and everything was magic and good.

So my only guess is some gremlin had done that loop with the old setup and I'd not noticed... or things just needed attention and it was entirely coincidental that doing the inadvertant loopback had the same problem as what I was trying to fix.

I only understood half of what you said.
Which, in the end and but still, made me feel good. XD w00t
