Last night my DSL went out around 6:00 PM. I could connect, but the DSL modem kept resetting. Very frustrating. I was on long enough to check Earthlink's network status and it did mention that there would be a several hour maintenance period in that would affect DSL usage in "selected cities", but Portland wasn't one of them. I wound up tearing apart much of my office, rewiring everything, checking the phone line, etc. Somewhere along the way things started working again. I have no idea why, but at least I was forced to clean up the wiring. I've been meaning to do that for a while.
