No Internet

United States
October 11, 2017 5:17pm CST
I started my day off with the usual routine but when I finally got to sit here at the computer I didn't have any internet connection. Couldn't figure out why but here I am now connected to the wonderful web. There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for lack of internet connection so I'll just blame it on the internet gods and be grateful it's all working fine now. I feel like I missed the whole day and didn't get to interact here nor pay my bills or do anything else I normally need the internet for. My daughter came over and we had lunch and she was telling me all about some new projects she's working on for her Etsy shop. I did manage to get my Halloween decorations up yesterday so now I feel very festive. My granddaughters marching band was selling mums for a fund raiser`and I got a few pots in various colors which look really nice on my front porch. Now it's time for dinner (roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli). Hopefully tomorrow things will work properly and I can spend more time here and at least try to catch up somewhat.

Most of the time technology is a mystery to me. Glad you had a chance to stop by. We are decorated for Halloween here too.

That's why I dislike modern technology. Unreliable.

Especially since there didn't seem to be any reason for the interruption.

It happens time by time, I switch the rooter off and then on and the Internet comes back.

@Marilynda1225 If it does not work, rebooting the computer also fixes the problem.

@LadyDuck you're so thoughtful to give me all this advice. I wrote it down so next time it happens I'll know what to try. I'm embarrassed to say I know very little about technology even the basics

Hiccups in technology can be either annoying or cute so I am guessing the 'no internet connection at the time' was NOT cute huh ?

nope wasn't cute and really a pain since I'm challenged when it comes to knowing what to do.

@Marilynda1225 Just unplugging it and plugging it back in again might have helped,,either that or resetting your modem.

I'm glad to hear that your internet is now working. I know how it feels when the internet is down or not working properly. I have AT&T and it is the worst internet service in the whole wide world.

I really get bore if my internet connection is there. We do get internet connection problems because it is BSNL. BSNL has slow internet connection or sometimes it will not be there.

I know what that's like, I would feel miserable without Internet because my work depends on it. Enjoy your dinner!
