No Internet Connection

I'm very upset! That's an understatement. I was watching a little bit of Netflix last night before I went to bed and allowed my grandson to use my computer. Suddenly halfway through the episode I was watching the Internet connection went out and my grandson came from my office having finished what he was doing on my computer. I went back to my computer to find no Internet connection. I don't know what he did, and went to talk to my son who's the genius when it comes to fixing the Internet. He was asleep so I went to bed. The Internet was working this morning when I got up, but not my phone. Upset - yes, understatement. I asked my grandson what he did, he said he didn't do anything. I HATE people lie to me. He was lying. I told him he wasn't going near my computer again. I tried to figure out what was wrong that the phone wasn't working. I unplugged cords, plugged them back in, and then my grandson nonchalantly walks in and says his father said I should call AT&T. I couldn't find the number so I went online and found the troubleshooting page. After determining what was working and what wasn't, I finally got the diagram on what I needed to do next, and now the phone is working. My grandson had left for a bit and when he came home he asked if the phone was working and asked if he could use it. I told him NO, he wasn't going near my computer or the phone again. Upset doesn't cover what I'm feeling at the moment. However, I'm glad I finally got it figured out and everything is working again. How's your day going? I really hope it's better than mine. Thanks for reading.

Good point is you figured out the problem by yourself, without your genius son, or any IT authorities involved. And you can say, 'bring it on!' lol

So you really believe it was your grandson who interrupted the service somehow ? Hmmm

Absolutely. My son believes it too. There's no other explanation. He comes in here, uses the computer, leaves and nothing is working.

@just4him it has to be where he is going on the net, particularly a site with a malicious intent somewhere hidden in its programming and you getting shut down is the safety feature-- I 'd be jumping for joy he allowed no virus in except you scolded him . . .

@enlightenedpsych2 No, my son, his father, found the surge protector turned off and a cord at the back of the modem loose. That is not something that the Internet or my virus protection detected, that was him doing something to my computer and then lying to me about it. I'm doing my best right now to get into a happy mood, which I usually am, but I'm still angry with him. It wouldn't be so bad if he had just admitted he had done something to the computer, but he lies about lying. The kid doesn't know how to tell the truth about anything.

My work day was horrible and I couldn't wait to get out of there. At least you were able to get it fixed, so that's good.

That would be so annoying but I think you're pretty clever to have got it going again with so little help.

No internet if frustrating for sure. I hope all comes together so that the frustrations cease. Some days will be filled with mishaps but we overcome them. I hope all goes well tomorrow. Have a great weekend.

Having no internet is frustrating but having your grandson lie about it is worse.

Yes it is. I don't handle people lying to me very well and my kids know it, but my grandson obviously hasn't gotten that message yet. Maybe now he has.
