dsl half-broken, again


For the last couple of days I've had the same problem I saw about two weeks ago with my DSL connection. Some sites were unreachable while others worked fine. So I bit the bullet and called up support (again) and this time I got some more details. Apparently Eircom added a pool of IPs recently and one of their transatlantic provider (AT&T) doesn't know about them yet. So whenever you go through them, they drop the packets. After some changes and trying out other usernames, it started to work again. Hopefully this problem with AT&T will be solved soon (they said this week, I'm skeptical); for some reason I keep getting assigned to that broken pool and half the internet is innaccessible for me (and people can't reach me either, which is bad for P2P apps). We'll see.
