*pets pretty flist*

I woke up to one of the most horrible of disasters this morning.


eek! *runs around the room, pulling hair and traumatizing children as well as pets*

I spent 20 min. working on it myself. Called the cable company, and worked on it another hour. Finally, the guy I was talking to had me go into the C prompt, where we discovered my IP address was gone. Tried releasing and renewing...same result. He suggested changing out the Ethernet cord, and if that didn't work then the NIC card (Network adapter).

Well did the cord...Nada

*enter panic mode* I don't know nothin bout no NIC cards!

Where do they go? How do I put them in without fucking something up on the motherboard? What do they look like? Where the hell's my pants?

Oh, uh, wrong topic.

Anyway. 15 bucks later, I've got it home and 10 min after that it's installed. Easy as hell.

Now it gets interesting.

Still no net service. *flails around the room some more, pays for psycho therapy for cat*

Call the manufacturer because it's showing that the NIC card is installed correctly, but still nothing. Nothing else they can do, so I screw around some more. Getting rid of the old card in Add/Remove programs. Checking properties on the new one. Disabling and re-establishing a new network connection.

And you know what happened?

Not a damn thing. Still nothing.

So I call the cable company. This new guy knew his stuff that's for sure. Well the first guy did too so I'm not knocking him at all. Anyway, played around some more. Finally he was able to 'grab' the modem from his end and basically give it a good kick in the ass to wake it up.

And baby I am back! *blows you all kisses as the twitching and shakes ease away*
