Fixed ... for a while.

Fairpoint repair tech arrived ...

The modem (actually a dsl router, but who cares) is bad - replace modem.

Oops, the new modem won't authenticate, either.

Call and confirm that the username and password I gave him are correct - still no authentication.

Call infrastructure repair - they had a trouble call into the CO late Saturday/early Sunday morning and transferred "everyone" over to new hardware to fix a problem.

Whoops - we didn't finish Mr. Russell's circuit apparently.

I now have Fairpoint Internet ... again. 4.5 mbps (part of that UP TO 7 mbps package) down and 0.9 mbps up. Sucks to live in the boondocks with piss poor infrastructure and service.
