Ok, so, today at around 4:30, my internet died while playing DOD:S, I have been running through the network connection properties, status, IP configuration, repaired probably 15 times, restarted maybe 4 and all of sudden it works...
Explanation: the first 12 or so repairs worked for about 5 minutes, then crashed, the last few always said could not connect TCP/IP not enabled (WTF?!?!?!)
Clarification: my bad, not all of a sudden, but very close
Another Explanation: After running ANOTHER repair, my network connections and my repiar window froze, I did a proc kill (faster than end task, although probably dangerous...) then it reset the whole desktop, toolbars and all. when it came back, the connection was disabled and said connection failed... having seen this on my mainframe when my brother goes into dalaran on wow and then yells at me when the internet crashes, I just restart the computer and now it works...
Conclusion: WTF did I do to deserve 4 and a half hours of painful annoyances through the failure that is the microsoft corporation in order to get my internet back? How would I go about approaching this issue if it were to happen again, say... two seconds after (or before) I finish the message
P.S. Yes, gamers, I totally just pulled a KOTOR2 reference (hopefully you got it)
If I'm posting, I probably have something horribly wrong with my computer, there's no obvious explanation for it, that's just the way it is.
