    Mediacom Internet Issues

    Anyone else in DM/WDM area experiencing issues with Mediacom? Can't get through their phone lines but unsure if an outage or their typical response time.

    Re: Mediacom Internet Issues

    Saw on another forum people were having DNS issues.

    Change your dns settings to google's DNS (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4) and that should help (and if not, its generally a better option than mediacom's DNS servers anyways)

    Re: Mediacom Internet Issues

    Thanks this worked for me. Ours was out in Ames. Every Mediacom # I called I got a straight busy signal. I can honestly not remember the last time I've heard an actual busy signal. They must be having major problems...

    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    For as miserable as their service/support is, they do a good job on the Twitter.

    Re: Mediacom Internet Issues

    southside Des Moines was out but is now good to go... I hate not knowing if there are issues or not. Yesterday they changed the name of my wireless connection (& password) with no notice.. Is that common? I moved my internet from Qwest to Mediacom (was paying $40/mo for 1.5 mbps not getting 15 mbps for $25!!!) I have always hated mediacom but I like the increase in speed (when it works!)

    I was having problems in Indianola on my iPad, but thought it might be my extender. I'll have to check it out.

    Pretty sure this was widespread. Waterloo also couldn't connect to anything.

    DNS server issues for the last hour or so here in Altoona. All is well now.

    It was. Mediacom's social media account said it was happening all over.

    Announcing internet outages on the internet is brilliant.
