In Florida during the summer we have these pesky little afternoon thunderstorms that often turn into torrential downpours. The kind where you just sit inside your office or home during lunch because it is too rough of a rainstorm to think about venturing outside even with an umbrella or rain jacket.
Well, one of those thunderstorms happened last week and knocked out the power for a few hours. However, it also knocked out my cable internet. So after some testing and phone calls with Cox Communications, I thought it was my router. So I went to the store and bought a new router, hooked it up, did everything right….nothing. Okay, when I say hooked it up, I really didn’t mean me, but my friend that knows how to fix everything when Adam is away, Tien. We came to the conclusion that it was not my router, but my modem. The next day I called my Dad for advice and he ordered me a new modem. It came today, I hooked up the modem, connected it to my original router, nothing. Finally I connected my new modem to my new router and I have access to the world again!!!
My cell phone bill data plan also thanks you because I already had to order additional data for the month.
