[TriLUG] OT: More on the RR Network issue

I should have been more specific earlier, but I hadn't really thought
clearly enough about the e-mail prior to sending it. I was simply using
the DNS servers as a point of reference. All connections had dropped to
nearly nothing. I do run BIND internally for my lan and for caching, so
I only use RR's DNS as a backup. But, when I have an issue I normally
check connectivity to the DNS servers as a matter of convenience. Oh, I
checked my bandwidth with their speed test (yeah I know it is crappy :)
during these slowdowns and it was around 9kb/s. Which is something I
haven't ever seen even during peek times with RR.
So, everything starts getting slow and what correct itself until a cable
modem power cycle. If I restart networking without power cycling it
doesn't find an ip address and simply keeps looking until it has failed.
