Howdy folks!

Sadly yes I'm back, but for a completely different reason this time, a rather odd one at that.

As of 4am my time, i lost my ability to connect to the internet. For the life of me i could not figure out what was wrong. I tried reconfiguring the proxy settings, checking the router settings, even tried logging on with an mmo just to see if i could make a connection to the internet in case it was something wrong with firefox. Nothing worked.

Out of desperation i went into the connection settings to see if anything unusual was going on. I remembered that I had an old wireless router setup in my home network, but had deactivated it a long time ago. At any rate i went into the settings, turned it back on, and viola, i have access again. Went back yet again and disabled the wireless and hooked back into the wired setting, lost the ability to connect like before.

I have checked all the wiring and it doesn't appear to be a loose connection or worn out wiring. I'm out in the woods on this one gang, could really use some advice.

Thanks in advance.
