[ NNSquad ] How do I detect connection disruption by my IAP?
I have Comcast as my Internet access provider. I've been sending large messages regularly via Gmail (almost daily for a couple of years). I sent a message without problem Monday through Wednesday. This morning I tried to send a message and it failed five times. The attachment is large, but a little smaller than yesterday. The error was: Oops... a server error occurred and your email was not sent. (#001) (Similar error if I try to "save" the message.) The five send failures and save failure were with Firefox, my standard browser. Then I tried from IE and the message was sent. Then it failed again from Firefox. (Chance? Coincidence? Time-outs somewhere? I'd love to construct a formal experiment with multiple computers, different browsers and add-ons, and stop-watch controlled timing intervals. Unfortunately, I have a life.) How can I tell whether there is a problem with Google today, some issue "out on the Internet", a Firefox problem, or whether Comcast is messing with my connections? Are there any Windows XP tools to monitor my connections (either inside or out of Firefox) to see if there was a forced close? Thanks, B.J. -- B.J.
