    get back from trip away for two weeks - modem not responding, router yes, modem no.....

    * try for three days to do all sorts of fancy stuff
    * around 250e9 combinations of updates, drivers, plug-ins, repairs, diconnecting, making connections

    * have absolute huge and mega tantrum
    * pull out power from modem
    * pull out power from router

    * swear at computers and all who live in them

    * and their mothers

    * push in power to modem
    * push in power to router
    * see lights do nothing

    * think feck it
    * go and get a beer

    * come back
    * lights are on and connection back up!

    I don't think I could take being away from my connection for 2 weeks.
    Not even for an upgrade.
    No way
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    lol - I probably didnt explain myself well enough.
    I was on a work travel trip for two weeks so that was why I was without a connection initially ... then I came back and for three days I was without a connection because I couldnt get it to work.
    I have to admit I was starting to panic!:D
    I found out about the upgrade from an email from the ISP that I could only access once I got my connection up and running again :?: hmmmm....
