Internet outage status
Published: 9-19-2012 11:15 pm
All: OK folks. Complicated scenario here but I'll try to explain
briefly. We actually have (had) two problems: 1) The local carrier that
transports our data to Omaha for connection to the internet has a faulty switch
in the Wayne office. That switch caused the full outage between 7 and 8PM
tonight. 2) The internet service provider that picks up half of our traffic to
the internet from Omaha outbound had a network port that filled up and caused
our spotty service from 8-10PM.
Problem 2 has now been fixed. Problem 1 (the faulty switch) we thought was
fixed, but a few minutes ago the problem switch started having problem again. A
new switch is on it's way to Wayne, about an hour out at this point (plus
configuration time). We're hoping to be fully operational by 2:30 or 3AM.
Again, thanks for your patience. Hang in there folks...it's been a bumpy
