Spoke too soon...
Well, my internet connection only lasted a couple of days. It returned Thursday morning and disappeared Sunday afternoon.
I have the same problem as before, slow flashing @ light and "PPP Server Down" error message from the Wireless and Talk router.
It took a very long time to get through to technical support this time, nearly 20 minutes, and I needed to get a little irate with the representative before she assured me she would not go through all the same protocols I had the week before (line test this, line test that) and that it would be bubbled up to the fault service personnel and should be repaired within 48 hours. However, I will be very pleasantly stunned if things are back within 48 hours. Here's hoping.
It could be worse. I happen to live near enough a wireless hot spot to be able to connect to check email and make this post, for example.
