    So for the past two days I haven't been able to access BHW. When I try to come here, it always says connection interrupted. It started doing this on other sites a very much need, to. I am forced to use my slow and expensive VZW mobile broadband that I was just about to cancel.

    Has anyone ever had a problem like this? Is there any way of fixing it besides just contacting your ISP?

    Well I would ask first if it is a browser issue.

    One way around it is try accessing the sites through a proxy site. I have charter but never this problem. Could just be a propagation/server loading problem.

    It's doing the same thing with FF and IE when I'm on charter. It works just fine on VZW.

    I'm just assuming it's charter's fault.

    I have a couple houses and use several cable providers, personally I prefer charter over comcast any day of the week. But then again they are all a bunch of monopoly's who just fuck the consumer.

    Have you attempted to reset your modem or router already? If so did and that didn't work have you checked to see if it's a DNS issue by attempting to route you DNS through a free service like opendns.com?

    I used to have Charter but I don't think I ever had that problem.

    It just know fixed itself after almost three days. I didn't realize it until I was on here and it was too fast to be my VZW connection.

    Thanks
