BolehRoute user cap to be expanded

We have noted that BolehRoute’s popularity has picked up quite a lot since we switched to the new host and we are looking into expanding its user cap by another 16 users.

We have already placed the order and are awaiting their action.

Please note that we have been receiving infringement notices on this server and urge our users to stop downloading irresponsibly. We have sent e-mails to the relevant users and are awaiting their reply.

Official Response from TM’s Tech Support

So after wasting my time taking down my details and my username.

He tells me that there is ‘scheduled maintenance’. I say…well your scheduled maintenance was not announced anywhere. He tells me they are doing recabling works.

I ask if there’s anything I can do to alleviate the problem?

He tells me to flush my dns. I tell him it to flush that advice down the toilet.

Whether this recabling works is true remains a mystery but it would explain the patchy connectivity even with LOCAL sites.

Massive Connectivity Issues on Streamyx

There is some massive routing connectivity problems on Streamyx at the moment so some of you might be having problems surfing to many sites.

Even local connectivity is seriously messed up:

So keep your hat on and don’t scream at us :D

In cases like this, BolehRoute might help by giving you an alternate route. This is assuming that your routing is ok to BolehRoute’s server to begin with (that means if you can get connected).

Luckily being a BolehVPN user, you are also granted to BolehRoute which pushes your entire internet connection through our VPN with zero configuration. If the route to BolehRoute is fine then you should be able to surf with it and do your regular stuff (except high latency specific applications like games, voice streaming).

THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED but is something you might want to try besides changing your Streamyx IP range :D Check by our forums for further info!

Update 14 July 2008:

This is still plaguing our network.

Server Interruptions

Several servers went offline during the night and have been since brought back online.

Apologies for the brief downtime.
