I iz a teknitian

Its pretty bad when your cable internet goes out, and when you finally call to find out what the problem is they tell you to reset your router AND THAT FIXES IT. Duh!

I think Comcast farted last night or something, because I couldn't get online this morning, either. My connection said 'local and internet,' but I didn't have time to go into the house to reset everything.

Hey, at least you didn't call Mac!

I do believe the problem was precipitated by a maintenance, because when I called the first time I was told that a maintenance was happening. It wasn't for another two hours before I got suspicious and called back. But either way, I SHOULD have known better than to NOT try and reset my router.

Trust me, you probably made the Comcast guy's day by having such an easy call. I love no internet calls where power cycling the network actually works!

Well, they DID actually have to reset the modem. But when I saw that they could reset the modem but I couldn't talk out (I could ping the modem but not the gateway) then I knew it HAD to be me. I hung up before I restarted the router, but I knew doing it would work.
