Hi guys, I just reset my router rta 1320 /i am with slingshot/ and i dont have any international connection. it seems to me that I've got access to local servers only, is that possible?
anyone knows how to fix that?

Sounds like an ISP level problem. You need to ring their helpdesk first, then come back here if they say there is no problem.

similar problems here. there is a notice on slingshots website stating that they have sorted things their end but now ongoing problems are due to telecom and affect 'all ISPs', not sure I believe that but anyhow I'm not changing isps so just have to grit my teeth for now.
VERY frustrating since i download a lot outside of peak hours and hate coming back to see my modem is offline.
Reboot your router and if still no connection just wait and try again. Downtime for me ranges from 5mins to 1hr, usually under 20mins though. p2p speed is shockingly slow these days, dont think thats totally slingshots fault though.
