I suspect that TelMex is adding or redoing some things, as the most common time that Prodigy goes down is 11 a.m. Almost like it was planned. It would be nice to find someone at TelMex who could actually tell us what is happening. However, I suspect that they are like Adelphia was in our little town in Mass. That is, the office staff is probably totally out of the loop as to what is happening with the internet service. It might be possible to reach a friendly geek at their internet service number, but I have trouble understanding this stuff in English, much less Spanish.
The good news is that I am now set up with Prodigy dial-up as an alternative. This was very easy to do, even for Ye Olde English Major. On Windows, click on: start, control panel, connect to, show all connections, network connections, create a new connection. Yes, I did have to have my ID and password from TelMex in order to connect. It is only 48 whatsis, so it works real slow, but it does work.
The scary thing is that I am ALMOST getting used to this.
