UPDATE! I called up Qwest and we figured out that my problem was with my router. And just to be sure I plugged the router back in after hanging up with Qwest and sure enough my problem came back...so now I have disconnected the router. So Now I need to ask if anyone knows how I can fix my router so I can use it again...cuz it was my firewall. Thanks!
I am experiencing computer problems AGAIN!!!! And to tell you the truth it is really making me very angry.
For the past few days we've had where we can get on the internet but for some odd reason everything is taking a very long time to download (slower than way back when we were on dial up!) and most of the time Internet Explorer just gives up and says it can't display the page. I've been having to hit the refresh button over and over just to get most things to come up. A lot of the time it will down load part of a page and quit...like all the Ads and then quit before the stuff I WANT to see comes up. *eyeroll!*
I've run my antivirus...it says my computer is fine and the only thing it has ever brought up is cookies.
I can do all other applications on my computer with no problems or lag (word, and games.) It seems entirely internet related.
I have been having it give me cranky messages about flash player (cuz Webkinz uses that a lot.) And it has shut down IE because of the flash player thing.
Oh and in the past my modem has disconnected from the internet for no known reason. I've had Qwest out here to look at it before and the guy fixed a bunch of stuff on it, but I couldn't tell you what that was.
The modem seems fine right now...it's not kicking me off the internet. But if you know how I can check it, that would be great. I could also use help with testing the router.
I hate calling up anyone especially Qwest (my provider) or MSN (my ISP) because the two of them keep playing the blame game circle..."it's not our fault, it's theirs!" And the last time DH called up Qwest he had DH delete the Ethernet card which seemed to fry that out entirely!
If anyone out there has suggestions for what all I can do please let me know... Thanks!
I was able to visit blogs yesterday, but I could only comment on some. I'm so sorry.
