Saturday night my internet died. I rebooted the modem and then went to bed. My master plan did not work, the internet was still out when I got up on Sunday. I tried a few other tricks and called Wade for some advice, but no luck. (Lucky for me, my neighbors have an un-encrypted wireless network.) I finally called the cable company and the earliest they could send someone out was today. Two guys showed up at my door. First they determined that we had too many splitters in the hosue and we could no longer have cable upstairs. Then they decided they could work around that. Finally, they decided I had a bad modem. They gave me a new modem and now I have internet! They didn’t even charge me. I miss my wireless when it is down.
