everything was perfectly normal tuesday morning. i was gone for four hours, and when i came back, NOTHING was normal.
comcast said that the modem was old and not working, so, i went down and got a new one. since then, i have spent a couple of hours with comcast over six or seven calls, with NO results.
my yahoo email works perfectly fine, but nothing else does. when i can get google to come up, when i click on a site, the little arrow in the tab is going counter clockwise for a couple of minutes, then pops up with a stupid, "page not found", "connection was reset" or ignorant variations on them. obviously, you tube can ALWAYS be found. when i am in a site, such as this, it takes up to two minutes to change a page. it took a lot less time back when i had dial up.
the little icon on the bottom of the monitor says that i'm on network 5, local and internet. windows says that it can't find a connection problem.
comcast easy solve pops up saying that i've lost the connection. when i go into the control panel, the internet connections says that broadband is disconnected. when i try to connect, it ends up saying that it can't.
i'm obviously getting on the internet, but once there, it totally sucks.
i've done the antivirus and malwarebytes. i did a system restore, which is another problem. i had a dozen restore points, and restored it back to june 1st. now, i was going to try another system restore, and i only have three points, yesterday.
i am just about ready for a straitjacket. can anyone at least hazard a guess as to what is going on?
i have vista home premium.
