Arrrggghhhh! (Internet)

Maybe it’s the Russians …

First Weggieboy (https://phainopepla95.com/2016/12/28/post-1255-argh-router-issues-this-time/) … now me.

Luckily my iPad has a cellular data connection or I could not post this. After noticing that webpages failed to load, I attempted a speed test. FAIL

So I unplugged my modem/router/wifi box and waited “long enough” then plugged it back in. Still no Internet access via WiFi.

Called my big name cable TV and internet service provider. “There is an outage in your area,” an automated voice announced. “Service is expected to be back … blah blah blah (whenever)”

OK Internet is back up BUT download speed is terrible. Call them back.

Now I am on hold with a human agent as they check my system (7:56 PM CST) …

There still appears to be “partial outage” in the network the will be corrected by 8:45 PM CST.

Now it is 8:49 PM. I unplugged my modem/router/wifi box and waited “long enough” then plugged it back in.

Download speed is about 25% of what it should be. Upload speed is normal.
