I think that I am back for real!
I thought I was...it lasted just a very short time.
Apparently the internet company (who shall be nameless *S*) kept telling us it was our modem. We spent $130 for a new one and internet lasted just a few short hours. We went down completely and this time it affected many people. Apparently they had a piece of equipment going down and we were feeling the affects of it. It took them a couple of days to get it fixed. Since back online yesterday, we have not had any problems...*knocking hard on wood* ...lol
