GASP!! What do you mean, I can't get to the Internet!!??
Sometime late on Thursday, our connection to the Internet was lost. I was too busy Friday to realize it was down, and groaned on Saturday morning when I realized we couldn't connect. I was sure that they wouldn't send a repairman until Tuesday at the earliest, because of the holiday weekend.
I resigned myself to a long wait, so I was very surprised when they offered an appointment on Monday. SURE, I'll be here! They called back to ask if someone could come on Saturday.....it was Saturday when they called. SURE! I'll be here. Unfortunately, the repairman didn't keep the Saturday appointment. I was rather ticked, because we had planned to go out to dinner, and the appointment was to have been by 6:15. We waited, thinking he was just running a little late.
I called the company after 8:00 p.m. and they said the appointment was still open. By then, I didn't want a repairman in my home. We rescheduled for Sunday afternoon. I tried all the common tips to get the modem to work. You turn the computer off, and unplug the modem, plug it back in, and it usually works. I knew it was getting power because the computer worked. Finally Second Son came down and looked around. He discovered a re-set button on the back of the modem, and tried it.
I went without an Internet connection for close to three days because I didn't know there was a re-set button. (You can imagine me fuming here....)
I'm so very glad to be back. I think I'll spend a little time catching up with your lives.
