Internet outage began about 8:10 a.m. on 2/24/24

Our fiber provider did not send notice of a maintenance fiber outage today between here and Seattle. Our connection to the Internet should be back some time this afternoon. Apparently the State of Washington required that they move the fiber bundle to the other side of a highway between here and Seattle. This was apparently a surprise to a lot of Internet providers in the Northwest.

12:35. The Internet is back up.

 

If you have an ASUS router and have been intermittently knocked off the internet...

5/18/23. There appears to be an exploit out on the Internet that's attacking ASUS routers. A firmware update appears to solve the problem.

Log into your ASUS router at http://router.asus.com and click on the version number at the top of the screen.  For the RT-AX55 it says v3.0.0.4.386.xxxxx.  It will take you to the update page.  There should be a button on the page to check for updates.  Push it.  If the check for updates button doesn't work, you will need to download the update files manually from Asus.com. Because this can happen, we suggest that you enable the auto-update feature once your router is up to date.

If you are our Internet customer, you may bring the router to Cactus, along with its AC adapter and the router's password, and we'll update it for you.

Please check your personal web site.

5/15/23. We're doing some cleanup on the Personal.Palouse.net web server. Most of these free sites have not been modified since 2014! We've taken those old sites off-line. If you still want them, the information is saved. Let us know if you still want it by July 31, 2023.

Web Email Pro User's Manual

Here is a link to the new Web Email Pro User's Manual.  The only thing in the Manual that doesn't work (that I'm currently aware of) is the VoIP service because we didn't license that.  If you want the IM service but it doesn't appear in your Webmail, let me know and I'll make sure it is enabled for your account (tony@turbonet.com).
