On a regular basis, or should I say daily, my AT&T DSL service is offline. Sure, I can wait an hour or more for the ISP to kick back on, but I WON'T DO IT MAN!
So I found this trick I have been using with great success. I call 1-877-722-3755 for DSL tech support.
It's automated and I have to go through a slew of voice prompts such as, YES I'm calling from the same number as my DSL connection, NO I am not using Vista, I need TECH SUPPORT, for a CONNECTION PROBLEM. Then the automated voice runs a test on my line and BAM! Sometimes I don't even get past the first couple prompts before my Internet connection mysteriously comes back online.
If I haven't done this 10 times or more (and yes even this morning) I wouldn't BLOG about it. But it seems to me, if it works, you all ought to know about it.
