Otherwise, ... . Yes, yes. The modem was working properly, failed in daily service. I'm as sure as anyone who's not a hardware wonk can be that it was failed hardware. Hence the post to suggest failed hardware to the OP. -- Mike Spencer Nova Scotia, Canada

Subject: Major outage in West Glacier, Montana Message-ID: <k2r0ou$hmq$1@dont-email.me> The entire phone system is out of service in West Glacier, Montana. The grocery store, restaurants, the Post Office and my phone are all out of order, and everyone is saying "fiber cut". I don't have dialtone, so that means we're on a remote and the umbilical was cut: I don't remember which remotes have some "local" dialtone capability, but this isn't one of them. No 911, no nothing. Someone, please tell me what the criteria are for a "Major" outage that must be reported to the FCC. Does anyone know where I can check? How long before Centurylink has to declare it? Bill -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly) *Moderator note: I believe that carruer outage reports to the FCC are no longer publicl available. Post-9/11 anti-disclosure of 'critical infra- structure' data. Can somebody currently active in the field confirm?
