Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I get home Wednesday and my internet isn't working.
It was working perfectly the night before. I turned everything off like I do normally, and next day - boom - no workie.
My internet is provided by Comcast Cable.
It goes to a Comcast Cable Modem to my Linksys Wireless Router, to my computer (which is hooked to the wireless router in a wired fashion: via an ethernet cable).
I take the ethernet cable out of the wireless router and plug it into the cable modem, so I have a direct connection from PC to Cable Modem.
Maintaining the set-up (no wireless router), I call Comcast and wait on hold for 20 minutes. I get someone and he walks me through and ipconfig reset, ipconfig renew, and then power everything down for 45 seconds (disconnect hte power cable to the cable modem!!!!!! POWER CYCLE!!!!!!!!11!!one)
He tells me that he "reset my modem from his end" (whatever that means) and "cleared the line".
Turn the PC back on, and I'm good to go.
I hang up. Then I figure I can use the wireless router, so I plug my PC ethernet cable back into one of the four ethernet slots on the back of the router, plug the router ethernet into the Comcast cable modem, reboot everything and... nope.
So I put it back the way it was.
And it's fine... Hmm.
So... how do I get my Linksys Wireless-G router back into the mix? It's updated to the latest firmware - I did it over a month ago when I wanted to get my Wii all up on the internet, and I've completely powered everything down MULTIPLE times since - so I know it's not the router.
