Oops!

In her zeal to increase the power of her home wireless internet, Boudicca struck again. This time, instead of laying waste London, she managed to strike dead the ip address of her modem and router. The result is that she's having to piggy back on an unsuspecting neighbor's network. She promises to be back as soon as the geek pays her a visit and sets up her network again. Stay tuned.

You know what the running joke is in the house?

Ringo: Dad, so when you see "do you want to override your WAN, what do YOU do?"

Husband: NO! NEVER say yes!

Ringo and Husband: Bwahahahahaa.

Nice. I'm at the library. Your grandson had a case of the DTs with nothing to read, so I figured I'd hop on.

This is why you write down everything about the configuration of your router (especially the forced MAC address) to that you can take it off-line, do a hard reset, and re-configure it from scratch.

Or switch from the old router that got fried by lightning last night to the backup wifi router. Stickman must have his World of Warcraft!!!

Ah - fun with networking. Well, at least a visit from a friendly geek will cure it. In my world - I am the friendly geek. So when I break things I have to tear my hair out trying to fix them. heh.

Of course last week I was working on repairing our email and dns servers at work which was just a freakin' delight I can tell you. I even wrote an incomprehensible (to non-geeks) rant about error messages on my blog. It's my little effort to drive off the few remaining readers I have.
;-)

Hope you're back up and running soon.
