Anyone else experiencing dropouts in Johnsonville since 4:30pm?
It will only stay connected for a minute or so, then the modem recycles itself, sometimes coming back online for another minute or just keeps trying to connect, manually power cycling will give you your connection back, but only for a minute haha then the whole drama continues. grrr!
I've rung them and they say they can't see anything wrong :(

They rang me back on my mobile advising the problem has been fixed. I'm very impressed,  for an isolated problem it is rare for ISPs to fix so promptly... only about 2.5 hours downtime.. Well done TC!!
