Arrgh!

Sorry been quiet - technical issues! I'm on dial-up ATM because the broadband connection has died - again! It was fine when I got back last week (a few days working away) and disappeared folloing heavy rain on Friday! Grrrr!

5 careful considerations:

We need this rain but it shouldn't be interfering with your connection!

amazing how we dial-up folks keep on living really, isn't it ;-) but seriously though it is worse once you get used to that speed - you'll just have to pedal faster round that little wheel!

How does that work, then? Rain getting in the way, I mean. Nothing in T175 about that.

It was a thunderstorm it seems - I was only 4 miles away and saw and heard nothing! I can only think that the router took a hit but it's weird - the router (using ping) can reconcile web addresses to their IP address (and thus can see a DNS) but can't connect to anything. I'm in the office tomorrow so I'll try to grab some troubleshooting stuff from the web but it's getting expensive in routers if this one is shot.

Is it a Belkin? Their lifetime guarantee is genuine - when mine went into semi-working mode, they replaced it promptly with a better model after a few exchanges of email with the helpdesk, who were polite & sensible.
