Dag Nabbit! (aka TWC and VZ routing issues)

I have NO idea what the REAL problem was, but *something* was awry (not Cheryl) with the config on the Linksys aka Cisco Small Business router we use for NAT up here.

I pinged Verizon a while back and they said, "It fails both directions far outside of our network, so it's not us."

I didn't want to get into the semantics of "not REALLY... It could be a BGP issue" until I'd explored the issue with TWC.

I finally did that tonight and they were able to log into the cable modem and ping my house from there. I could ping to/from my house when I bypassed the linksys router. I could ping the TWC cable modem from my house.

Hrmmm. I dug through the configs in the Linksys and found NO config that should do this. I rebooted everything, no change.

So I copied down all of the configs, factory defaulted, updated firmware, reconfigured and VOILA! All network problems are resolved. Plus, I set the proper bandwidth max rates in our QOS config, and set up alert emails to go to me (barring any better place right now).

*phew*

So, it wasn't a verizon problem. It wasn't a twc problem. It was a Linksys problem, which has now been resolved.
