Could someone on Ihug please check few websites for me please?

I cannot connect to www.steampowered.com or any Steam Servers, cannot connect to www.mybalance.co.nz, www.digg.com and few others. Did a tracert to www.digg.com and I had an endless loop which was displaying ihug's gateway....

Paul will you be able to look into this problem? Had couple of others users on GpForums with same problem as well. On the line at the moment with ihug technical department for 10 minutes but no reply yet.

Thanks

billgates

manhinli: I'm on Vodafone Broadband, and I can visit all of the above mentioned websites just fine.


I RDP into my home computer where I also have an Ihug connection and its the same problem over there as well. Different Exchanges too. By Vodafone Broadband, do you mean ADSL connection or Mobile broadband?

Edit - Its working now :)

Hopefully for good now.

2nd Edit - Its gone again :(

Yep same here. Sites that aren't working for me are things like Slashdot, Wikipedia, NYTimes and some Aussie sites. Traceroute just bounces around the edge of the ihug network:

billgates: Have you tried a traceroute of Slashdot? Maybe it's an ihug server(s) problem which is common to yours as well.

Also has anyone tried a complete reset?

Yep... you two are stuck between

et4-110.akl-grafton-edge1.ihug.net [203.109.130.141]
and
vl110.akl-grafton-bdr2.ihug.net [203.109.130.142]

Looks like something Vodafone needs to advise or fix ASAP.

EDIT: Vodafone had a problem yesterday morning with Auckland customers, but it apparently got fixed at 9am.

That network status page has the be the single most useless page on their whole site, it's almost never updated and when it is, claims fixes hours before things actually get better.

Suggested new slogan: "Vodafone Broadband. Who said anything about nuclear attack? Our internet can't survive a decent rainstorm!"

Yeah, I've got the same thing.. looks like a borked router config in their core.

Just for laughs, I tried calling the call centre to tell them about the problem. After 20 minutes on hold, I get through to someone. After 10 minutes trying to explain to her what a router was, I gave up, and asked to be transferred to business services. Spent another 20 minutes on hold, then gave up finally.

I'm a recent convert to iHug, and hence Vodafone, and man, am I wishing I'd stayed with my former ISP... at least they trained the monkeys they let loose on their routers.

Here are some of the sites which end up in a loop in the same router pair as mentioned above:

login.oscar.aol.com 64.12.200.89
ad.doubleclick.net 216.73.86.152

Note that the last one is likely to hold up loading of LOTS of web pages.

EDIT: I'm on Fendalton, Christchurch exchange.
