The old unit is a Nighthawk AC1900 Modem Router, certified with CenturyLink,.. it's a bit long in the tooth, but has worked vary well till a few days ago. I'll be replacing it with a Netgear ProSAFE Gigabit Ethernet Switch model GS108,.. they are a nice unit, plug-N-play, 8-port desktop switch. 


I used Linksys years ago,.. but nowadays only sell/use NetGear.

CenturyLink Price for Life 80 Mbps is the service, it's $55/mo. for Download 80 Mbps and Upload 5 Mbps,.. I unplugged router and tested main line and it's getting 6 Mbps upload without going through the router,.. huge difference the work orders upload almost instantly without router.


I have new high speed switches at the shop, will grab one in the morning and test connection,.. it sure seems to be my NetGear Router is the issue, as it's at least 4-years old,.. I don't use WiFi so the new switch will work for connecting the three PC's on that line.


Thanks guys.  :cheers:

Nice! 40K fldc for finders fee.   :woot:


I might contact them today, my rig is still not sending/uploading finished work units, just noticed I have 8 WU's trying over and over to send,.. it's uploading up to 98% 99% then ERROR. 


Just keeps going in a loop, while credits slowly drop lower and lower, and perhaps after hours of this the server will respond and work unit will complete upload, give what's left of the credit.


I hit finish for the work units running now, and will see if any upload tonight or they just slowly wind down to zero credit.  :wallbash:

Perhaps starting a new bots thread would be nice.
