Stupid routing [May. 22nd, 2004|05:10 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Connectivity to my house to my office (6 miles away) just went to shit.

Instead of stay within Portland, we're going:

Portland, to..
New York City, to..
STK (?), to...
Florida, to...
Russia (!!), to
Seattle, BACK to...
and lost.

A total of 28 routers.

I guess it's cool when it does work, but this is pretty pathetic. I just want to work on my fun projects. :-( I don't even think what machines I work on when they're all normally so fast.

Those damn Russians. It's all their fault. What do they want, anyway, another Cold War?

Yeah, they're my 1st-10th hops or so.

A couple of thoughts:
1) Use the same ISP for both home and office.
2) Get the phone company to route a T-1 between the two. A T-1 shouldn't be that bad in cost and since it would just be a point to point the cost wouldn't include ISP fees. If you already have a T-1, then most phone companies give you a discount since it would be within the same cloud.
