Re: [tor-talk] ISP CenturyLink Blocking Tor?



I waited and switched my laptop back to Debian Linux from Windows 8.1 and build my WiFi Driver from source. (it was a Microsoft Driver for the Edimax Nano Wifi) (the source was from edimax) and afterwards I was able to connect to Tor without crashing the entire WiFi Network. I wonder if Microsoft's Driver was tapped or something. I agree the US is not as safe as it used to be.

I didn't get the OP's e-mail, but (assuming this is in US) customers have a lot of leverage. Just keep tor and torrent clients running, and call their customer service, and demand an explanation why the service they charge you money for doesn't work. Let them send the live technician to fix the problem. Escalate this as much as possible. Eventually they will have to fix your connection (with the mentioned services running). And if they don't, you can sue them in small claims court and demand compensation for all time, effort, suffering, emotional distress, deprivation of service, etc, etc, etc. And you will likely easily win the case.

Just trying to work around the problem in technical ways with bridges, Pluggable Transport, trying to hide tor traffic isn't necessarily the right way to deal with the problem.
