Comcast Cable internet issues in Boston?
 
Anyone else in the Boston area experiencing major issues with Comcast Cable Internet? TV works fine and DVDTalk loads, but nothing else. Can't even get to the Comcast support website. Feels like a DNS issue, but my DNS is already set to 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2. Thanks

I have issues with my comcast cable modem around the end of August / early September every year. I live in an apartment building, and every year some idiot from Comcast splits the signal too many times while hooking up new service for the returning college kids and my signal strength drops. I have the exact same problem you describe (TV works but no internet). I always have to have Comcast come out to fix it.

4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 are Verizon's DNS servers aren't they? Maybe Verizon started blocking non-Verizon customers from using them? Try Comcast's DNS server and setting Verizon's as a tertiary backup (that's what I did).

My Internet service has been intermittent as of late, but I chalk it up to what BobDole says...new tenants. Also, I'm sure the cable lines themselves in your building aren't that new, so there might be an issue there (I had that happen at an old apt.).
