Oceanic Cable Internet Outage 28may17

Oceanic Cable lost internet service, among other things on Sunday night … came up at 0900 Monday, down at 0930, back up finally 1120.   It could well have been a problem caused as a side effect of work on restoring  local TV feeds, apparently still down 24 hours later, but no idea really what the issue was.

Notes on this event.  I guess the main think is that when the internet comes back, all devices start working by themselves.  User need not do anything but wait, so no action at all is required.

Indications on my SURFboard SB6144 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem were only two blue LEDS lit.  Normally we get two solid blues ( receive and send) and a flashing blue ( router connection)

Failure mode:

  • Blue receive data,
  • Blue Gig E mode light ( indicator that the router is connected).
