I am wondering whether there are any other people who have had total or near-total Internet failure on 25th February, esp. in the Bristol area. During February I've had several incidents of non-access to the Internet, but today beats them all. Switched on this morning, almost every one of my regularly visited websites inaccessible or timed out; rebooted the router, but no change. But then, by using an anonymous proxy, I could access normally. This has been going on all day.
My isp is Pipex, now TalkTalk. Before everyone goes "yeah, no wonder", I have to say I've never had any real problems until this year. But suddenly I'm getting outages almost every week. I can't tell what it is; DOS attacks? bad isp connection? or what? My ADSL line is fine. I've logged a statement to TalkTalk and am awaiting a reply, but in the meantime thought I'd post here.....just in case someone recognises the issue.
