Hi,

Anyone else have an outage at the moment in Eastern suburbs?

How Eastern Jon?  We haven't had anything reported internally (power outages etc).
What state are the blinkin lights on the front of the Cisco or the Motorola Cable Modem in?

Jon, has your Surfboard got the 'Suspend' button on top?  It's one of those annoying features that can stop all traffic through the modem from the client port but you'd swear everything was 100% functional.
It doesn't give you ANY visual indication that it's been pressed either.  Heck, it's a momentary switch as well.
If the CM has one, give it a tap and try things again.  I hallucinate that it also survives reboots...

I believe it reads standby, that turns all the lights off, then on again...

Hmmm, if that is the case, then maybe it's a case of checking network connectivity via command line from your machine to your router, then to the cable L3 gateway, which will be the .1 address of the same address range of your external router IP address.
If you can establish where connectivity breaks, that might help narrow down the offending device.

Will try a direct Ethernet connection to my laptop in the morning, to make sure it isn't my router. Jon

Still no go, as I mentioned, I went to work with it working yesterday, and came home and it was broken.

As we haven't seen anyone else complaining about an outage, it's something in your setup/install.

Make sure you also test with a different PC just in case it's a malware or firewall misconfiguration on that PC.

If nothing works I suggest you contact TelstraClear Help Desk, be prepared to have your PC connected directly to the modem and follow their instructions. You will need to be at home to do this obviously.

I think it might be an account issue, as I closed my account and then reopened it. I only got the final bill yesterday from when I closed the account so they may have cut the service.

Looks like a call is the only option.

Fixed, someone in TC changed my ip address without telling me, and when we (phone tech) changed it the mac addresses were out of sync, so they needed to rebuild my profile...

The IP address was probably changed due to the account being closed.
