Internet Connectivity at Home

Well, I have a new pastime in the evenings... "Green Light Watching"

On my Comcast modem, there's a little green light that has three states:

(1) Solidly Lit
(2) Blinking at Various Speeds
(3) Non-Existent

#1 is usually the good thing. It means I can connect with the rest of the world.

However, since the line was reattached, #2 has been the predominant state. It blinks at different rates and I've learned that the fast rapid blinking usually signals it's about to return to state #1.

#3 has made appearances too, and I don't like that.

Last night I probably had a total of 15 minutes or so of internet connectivity over the 3-4 hour period I was watching it. And that 15 minutes was split up into 1-2 minute segments spread over that time period.

I'll likely be back to "Green Light Watching" tonight. *sigh*

Oh my gooood, I feel your pain... I've spent all night sitting on the floor in my room next to the router because I can't connect wirelessly. *grrr*
