network problems

No internets for us today. After four hours with no change I called spkz and they said "You've been DoS'd, and by policy when that happens we null-route your IP for 12 hours."

Two reactions:
1) Damn, that's nice tech support -- imagine trying to get that sort of info out of $GENERIC_ISP.
2) WTF did this happen? Amusingly, he asked if I use IRC (no) or online games (no), because (I imagine) those are the sorts of activities that tend to prompt DoSes.
