I've delt with my DSL (DirecTV) going on and offline for well over 6 months now. The deal with DirecTV is there's this green light (on the DSL itself) indicating you are online. While my speeds are normal at times, the green light keeps blinking and blinking and...it keeps closing the connection! (I have a cousin whose DirecTV DSL works without this nagging situation) I've called and called asking them to fix this somehow, but it never worked out. I've repeatedly had repairs to my phone line thinking that was the problem. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the configuration. Why else would it work half the time? Do you think they are ripping me off or what?
