That sounds ridiculous! Their Tier 2 staff consists of people that barely know what a computer is and then they expect you to pay them to fix and problem that's not your fault?? That's infuriating. I thought Charter's support staff was ignorant and I think AT&T just took the lead.

BUT ALL WAS NOT LOST! For a fee to be negotiated (but starting at $15) he could connect me to their ConnectTech service to troubleshoot the problem.
