Had an issue in Miramar too. I couldn't access any sites despite multiple reboots of modem & router. The cable TV was working fine though

Same here in Mt Vic - was playing around with my router at the time before it happened (opening ports etc for VNC) and all of a sudden it went down - thought it was something that i did lol. Quite relieved to see it back on this morning!!

Same in Johnsonville, it went down around 11.15pm or so last night, but was back up this morning. I figured the weather had caused a power cut, and the cable network's dependant on power.

I'm considering getting ADSL as a backup to cable, in case of emergencies. Though I have mobile internet if I don't leave it at work, so it's not a huge deal.

I use a Cisco router with built in USB for 3G modem. Could leave the USB modem always there for automatic failover, but that could potentially run into my allowance so I rather just plug it if really needed...
