For three days now I have not been able to connect to Yahoo, Linuxquestions.org or upload my SETI results. My ISP is Mediacom. When I call them I get different answer as to the problem, other than it wasn't there's. This started on the morning of the 12th. Does anyone have any idea what they did or a way to fix it?

Hey, I answered myself...... ifconfig eth0 mtu 600 now your yahoo will work, if your using goofy Mediacom.
dad
Don't forget if you do this and Mediacom ever fixes thier mess you'll need to change it back. Somethings may be slow but most should work, like SETI will now up and download....

Just as a point of interest, some AOL users may also need to do something similar to the above - I'm not sure of the actual MTU though.
