Tonight at about 8:00 I lost internet connectivity.  ADSL was up, but PPP took about 5 or 10 minutes before it would connect.  I'm on the Pakuranga exchange.  Does anyone know what happened?  (Not worried, just curious.)  When it finally connected, I went to the XNet home page and also noticed the network status banner took a while to initialise.  Did their server crash?  Or are we getting some snazzy new features which required a reboot?

See my last post - same here but with ihug on HCK.

I saw a few flickers in the lights before failure, so it could be some kind of surge or even lightning with the weather here.

Yup my net went down as well.
2 other mates of mine went down as well.
Were all on Xtra but different exchanges.
Their on the Blockhouse bay exchange and I'm on the Ponsonby exchange.
Weird?

manhinli: I saw a few flickers in the lights before failure


Thanks for that, my energy saving lamps do not flicker even when my old heat pump kicks in and draws a 30A in-rush current.
