I’m going to tag @cyrodiil-burns cause I need someone to hear my story right now for the sake of sanity and cause I have like 4 followers.
Internet has been dropping out on me a lot, especially when playing games. Been raining a lot so I figure the cable underground is doing any day now. Cable TV dies on me and internet keeps dropping and then stays dead. Call up Spectrum (They’re worse than ComCast.) and they’re like “Looks like you burned out your modem and converter box. We’ll have to send someone out…etc, etc.”
Only problem was my cable box/converter upstairs (Which comes into the house on a different line from the box outside) was working fine. So I get on my hands and knees and figure I’ll put the splitter and modem in the jack upstairs in the hope it’ll work so I at least have internet for the weekend. Cause you know I want to look at pictures of guns, kitties and titties.
Instantly I see it. The cable jack that comes in front outside is a solid FOOT AWAY from the splitter.
So I screw the jack back into the splitter. Everything works. Apparently over like the 4 ½ years I’ve lived here my feet must’ve kept hitting it under my desk and undid it finally.
