Grrrrr....

General off-topic chat

Grrrrr....

Apparently my wireless router is fucked up.

Maybe.

Possibly.

Honestly I don't know for sure if that's the problem or not. All I know is that my damned internet has been incredibly spotty over the last few days, and at first I thought my adapter was going bad, so I bought a new one. Didn't fix the problem.

Know what did? Turning on my little MiFi and connecting via that rather than my regular internet connection. Which leads me to believe that either my router has gone bad, or my ISP is playing a massive joke on me. (stupid Comcast).

I basically kept getting DNS errors, if there are any techie people on here who know what the hell that means. Websites would load occasionally and then would stop working the next time I tried to load them. Does that sound like anything anyone has heard of before?

Ya. It basically means your cmputer cannot connect with a DNS server, which is the thing on the internet that maps web addresses to web sites. Generally, thers a small connection error b/t your router, and your modem. Or there's an issue on the Comcast side (I have comcast, this happens to me). Usually I just kill my browser and restart it or the computer, and that takes care of it. I would try restarting your router and modem. Turn off the router (unplug) then the modem (unplug). leave the modem off for about 2 minutes, then turn it on for 2 minutes, then the router on after that. A hard restart might clear out anything lingering in the cache. Might work, might not.

Tried the whole restart thing; didn't work. I bought a new router; thus far, it appears to have fixed the problem. Keep your fingers crossed.

'Tis.

Of course, I now run the risk of losing access to the internet altogether.

I think I forgot to tell you guys... I sorta kinda, umm... lost my job.

Slowly. I've applied for a bunch of jobs, but haven't heard back from most of them or have been deemed unacceptable for the position. Disheartening, to say the least.

All over the area really; anywhere in the DC metro area is open season for me.
