AT&T U-Verse Internet Troubles
If you have AT&T Internet U-Verse you may have experienced issues, but this morning it appears to be much worse than in the past.
Sites are not loading, sites are timing out, some sites are working.
Is AT&T throttling speeds? Or is this an outage affecting some customers and not others?
Errors such as:
The connection has timed out
or pages that only load text and no images.
update: Apparently the issues on Jan 27, 2014 appear to be DNS issues, that are affecting customers nationwide.
The issue has been ongoing for several hours and reports from many areas where AT&T Uverse service is available.
Some have reported that changing their DNS settings has resolved the issue, i.e. change to public DNS such as Google’s 184.108.40.206, which appears to be working.
Here’s a tweet search of users experiencing issues and a fix to the current AT&T DNS issues here:
If you have #uverse #att #AT&T and are having internet problems. Change your DNS Servers to 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 worked for me. #googleDNS

Location: CC-201, Creveling Lounge (Parking available in Lot 1)
Refreshments will be served
Pasadena City College would like to invite you to a Special Retreat and Worksession to help the College develop a Vision for the Future of the College and its Facilities.
Pasadena City College has served Pasadena and the Greater Los Angeles basin for the last 90 years and as the 100th Anniversary approaches, the College is beginning the development of an innovative and dynamic Facilities Master Plan. Higher demand for classes and degrees, new technologies and new ways to learn are challenging PCC to re-envision itself and its future. PCC wants to hear from its Community and College leaders about how it can maintain its level of education excellence and become a model for higher education.
This workshop is the kick off to a year-long planning process to align its Educational Master PLan with the facilities needed to better achieve the College’s goals to help cultivate students for the global 21st Century. The result of this process will be the Centennial Facilities Master Plan.
Three planning firms have been hired to help develop the initial conceptual Facilities Master Plan by this Spring. This workshop will give you a chance to meet the teams and give the College and the planning firms your ideas about the needs and opportunities for PCC.
*Also in attendance will be President Mark Rocha, and members of the PACCD as well as faculty, staff and administrators
