If you have a Spectrum cable that is in the process of being disconnected, you should have your network back online as soon as possible.
You can check on your network’s status with the help of Spectrum’s Spectrum Cable Alert tool.
Here’s what you should do in case of a Spectrum outage: Update your DNS and DNS servers.
If you are on a network that supports multiple DNS servers, you can update your DNS servers with the Spectrum Alert tool and see if the DNS is responding correctly.
If the DNS servers are not responding correctly, you need to make sure that all the DNS domains on your DNS server are still accessible.
If your DNS Server is not showing up correctly, then the DNS will not respond correctly to your requests.
For more information about DNS, visit the Spectrum FAQ.
Update your DHCP servers.
You need to upgrade your DHCP server to use Spectrum’s DHCP server.
You should also update your network configuration with the Network Settings page.
The following steps are suggested: Update all your DHCP clients.
You will need to update all your clients on your DHCP network to use the new DHCP server for the DHCP address that your network is using.
Open up the DHCP client and enter your new DHCP address and the new IP address.
If this is a new address, change it back to your old address.
Open your Network Settings and set your network to DHCP only.
You also need to disable the DHCP servers that your DHCP client is using, so that your DNS clients don’t get overloaded with DNS requests.
Change the Network Port settings to a default of 255.255.255 and your network will work.
If a DHCP client doesn’t respond to your DNS requests, you’ll need to reboot the DHCP server and check to make certain that it is responding properly.
