Cable Modem problems
I had mentioned in some previous entries about wanting to change my Web Search code to use MSMQ. I have been out of town and I wanted to get back home to see how the changes ran over my cable modem. Well, I got home last week, tried the changes, and saw no improvement from here. What was a programmer to do? Well, it ends up that the problem was the cable modem had been provisioned while I was gone for 384 kbps instead of the 2 mbps that I was paying for. After a week of trying different things and testing different configs while talking with the cable modem tech support, I finally got passed around to someone that knew about the provisioning issue. Finally, the speed problem at home was resolved.
