Okay - I am recovering today. Comcast came yesterday. I have never heard of this, but when the lightening hit the Comcast line - it came in the house - and hit parts of a unit. For example - it took out two full televisions, but on the printer it only took out the fax part. The VCR's - one it took out the DVD ability the other one was totaled I guess you'd say. LOL We have a splitter in the house because there are a lot of televisions - all old - we own no flat screens yet - but we still needed the splitter to pull more power into the house for all the sets.
The first man put in a new splitter and it still didn't work. It needed new wires he said and he couldn't do that.
Guy number two came - put in new wires through the walls. We got reception back for the televisions - although two TV's are blown at this point. Okay he thought he fixed the computer problem too - because when he left - it was working. It was working when it wanted too - but it was totally random.
Guy number three came out last night and said the new splitter was bad and put in a new one - and of course the computer worked. He did say to the hubs maybe you want router. They don't check that type equipment. As soon as he leaves - wham - the computer internet was out again!!!!!!
Hubs got to thinking - he needed to test each computer individuals hook up to the router - if I am spelling that right. And low and behold the router to his computer was blown - he put his in a new one. And praise the Lord and hubs for internet that has worked all morning!!!!!!!!!!!
So see - I am giving hubs kudos galore!
This was the most interesting problem I had every seen. Now I can’t say hubs was totally calm the last three weeks - in fact I can say he was not - but he got it fixed!
Oh no he didn't I just tried to save and guess what - no internet. The saga continues!
My router is probably bad too....no dog house tonight! Just messing with you all!
