All summer I have noticed that my internet connection was off and on most of the time it would be not more than a few seconds or so.
Saturday morning I had like no activity at all. I went into town and they gave me a new modem, same kind but a new one. It didn't work any better.....so they sent a guy out. He couldn't figure it out but he said the same thing had been happening around but mostly on HP computers....
Sunday that guy and another guy came out and he said that what they THINK is happening between the firewall on the modem and the one with my anti virus there was conflict...they put on a different brand of modem with a different kind of firewall(?) and everything is a go again....the best part is that it is a LOT faster....so I am not complaining at all.
But they did say too that with the heat this summer that there were other things going on with electonics that normally don't happen......it is fixed and that is all I care about.....
