While you may be affected by the problem, its not a problem about which there is much you can do:


ISP spat blacks out Net connections
Level 3 and Cogent are fighting over financial issues

News Story by Stacy Cowley

OCTOBER 06, 2005 (IDG NEWS SERVICE) - A financial dispute between two major Internet backbones has led to dropped traffic between their networks in a high-stakes game of chicken that's angering customers affected by the network disruptions.
Early yesterday, Level 3 Communications Inc. terminated its "peering" agreement with Cogent Communications Inc. Level 3 said it decided to take that step after months of fruitless negotiations. In a peering agreement, which is a common type of service agreement among ISPs, the companies directly connect their networks and exchange traffic at no charge. In the chart of traffic speeds between Tier One backbones found in Internet traffic monitor Keynote Systems Inc.'s "Internet Health Report," the link between Level 3 and Cogent has been colored bright red for the past day, showing no packets exchanged between the two ISPs ...



Lotsa grumbling is going on, workarounds are being cobbled together, and lawyers are assembling all over the place.

If you reboot the router, do the sites that don't work now start working again after the reboot?

Let's just say I have the same problem as the above person with sites not loading. it manifests itself in particular with photobucket, Deviant Art, and Free Webs.

I have tried to log in both sites with two different computers, one that uses a roughter with Road Runner service, and the other a computer connected via dial-up.

The sites fail to load on both computers. I believe it has to do with the cognet and level3.

Check the internet health report, click on the companies and see if you're in the area that one of them is. I happen to be in one of the secters that cognet is. I suspect that those areas listed under those two companies are what are affected most by this dispute.
