Here in northern California, I have been having a constant problem with server dropout for several days. It is still continuing today (July 29th). From some other postings, I guess the problem is also affecting users in Texas and Japan. Hope it gets fixed soon!
I beleive the problem is caused by noise in the line , with the internet any noise in the Line wether DSL or phone will cause it to drop out , that happens to me also , Light on meter goes out staion id disappears but stations keep talking , so again any noise on your line will interrupt the signal for a mil a sec , Got this Info from Cable co provider of my DSL
hope this helps 73
