So I’ve spent I think 4 days dealing with my raspberry pi suddenly refusing to download anything. They start, go fast for about 15 seconds, and then just drop off and die completely. There might be a few stuttering starts but no real data transfer.
Tried on my laptop. Same issue. With or without the VPN, with or without a proxy. At this point I’ve tried damn near everything and I’m really frustrated. Maybe my ISP is blocking me? This all started shortly after they did some work on my connection…
Tonight I sit down at Mom’s computer. The only wired connection in the house. Downloads work perfectly. With or without the VPN, everything is fast and consistent.
So after pulling my hair out all weekend, it’s a problem with the router, nothing nefarious at all. Tomorrow I need to send a message to the ISP.
