While in the middle of searching Pinterest, my internet crapped out. Couldn't do anything on my computer or via WiFi. I ran AVG and while it fixed a bunch of registry issues, it didn't help. I rebooted the computer, didn't help. I unplugged the modem twice for over five minutes, and it didn't help. I tried switching the dsl cable to a different port on the modem, didn't help. Can't access WiFi on my iPad or iPhone either.

I don't know what else to do!

If the WiFi isn't working but the cable TV is, the problem is probably my modem, not the router, right? Do I have to get a new modem? This one is 5-10 years old. (I'd check LJ because I would have posted when it happened, but that will be too frustrating to do on my phone. I can check from work tomorrow.)

For the past week or so, my desktop computer's internet connection has been wonky. Only my desktop computer. When I use my laptop's wireless connection, everything is fine.

I keep getting Connection Interrupted errors, and/or pages are loading funny.

I tried checking the firewall settings and matched the desktop to the laptop's settings (Medium).

The only new thing on my desktop is that I added the AVG Safe Search Add-on to Firefox. I disabled it tonight, but am still getting the error message.

I tried unplugging the router power source; that did nothing. I disconnected the cable from the computer to the router; that didn't help. I'm getting very frustrated here.

I suppose I can try uninstalling the AVG tool completely and see if that makes a difference.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

My computer is having low disc issues. I finally set up my new 1TB external hard drive on Sunday, and have slowly been transferring all of my music and image files to just live on the external drive. Yesterday it said I had 10GB free again, then today it was back to just a couple hundred MB. WTF? I couldn't even crop an image in Photoshop tonight. Last night I did a Defrag and I've run the Disk Cleanup several times.

Do I need to upgrade my computer's internal memory too? It currently has an 80GB hard drive. Or is this not a hard drive issue? Is there some other trick I don't know about that will get it to run better?

This brings me to an announcement...

I won't be closing nominations/opening voting at the SunnyD Awards until Saturday, April 18th. So if there are any stories, authors, betas or websites you'd still like to nominate, now is your chance!

Rules & Categories
Current Nominees

If someone happens to think my recent Willow and Angel and/or Oz and Angel stories deserved a nomination, I'd give you a cookie for nominating it/them.

Finally, rather than spam you with lots of posts, I'm tacking on a meme. I was tagged by [ profile] tigerstriped86 to do The character meme - Doyle (AtS) )
