My Internet was out for over four hours today. I loathe calling my ISP, ran every conceivable diagnostic, but finally…
The first thing I am asked, "Are you sure the cable is plugged in?" I want to scream, no, of course it's not plugged in, why the fck else would I be calling you?, but instead I say, "Yes, I am sure the cable is plugged in. Are you?"
There is a silent click and the connection is broken.
Within seconds, the modem lights up and my laptop is back online.
