 +George phoned Gabe: Rogers suspended their account because there was a high volume of spam being sent... probably from an infected machine. ​ George called someone in to confirm that their office Windows machine isn't infected. ​ When George told Rogers that they'​re running a wifi network, Rogers said that they wouldn'​t re-enable the connection until he WEP-encrypted the wifi.  George explained to them that it's a public service for their customers; Rogers stood with their position.
 +
 +Gabe explained to George that our authentication mechanism can lead us back to the user who was (intentionally or not) sending spam -- all we need is for Rogers to tell us the date(s) and time(s) when spam was being sent.  Also, there'​s no way for Rogers to know whether or not the wifi is WEP-encrypted.  ​

 +They'​re now back up.

 Gabe got a call today from John; their net access (Rogers cable) went down on Friday, and he wanted me to come by to check it out.  The auth server confirms that they'​ve been down for 4 days.  I went to check it out -- the cable modem won't connect. ​ The "​online"​ light is off, and the "​send"​ and "​receive"​ lights flash regularly and in sync.  The DHCP server in the modem serves out IP addresses with no "​gateway"​ value.  ​ Gabe got a call today from John; their net access (Rogers cable) went down on Friday, and he wanted me to come by to check it out.  The auth server confirms that they'​ve been down for 4 days.  I went to check it out -- the cable modem won't connect. ​ The "​online"​ light is off, and the "​send"​ and "​receive"​ lights flash regularly and in sync.  The DHCP server in the modem serves out IP addresses with no "​gateway"​ value.  ​
