Dear Friends I'm scribbling this entry from my desk at work, why am I doing this I hear the crickets chirp?  Because less than 24 hours before The Show returns my internet goes belly up!

Let's go back to the start shall we? Last Wednesday after spending 10 minutes trying to watch a two minute vid from my course. I'd finally had enough of my crappy internet connection and rang Sky.  Now to be fair they were really helpful ,they tried to get me on another internet channel but after the connection failed twice, they conceeded I might need a new router! So thanks to me paying insurance on Monday I took posession of a shiny new Sky Hub.

Monday night it worked fine, and last night I connected my old lap top to it and still everything was fine. Then when everyone had buggered off to bed, I decided to have one more look at LJ...and nothing, no connection.... nada, sod all! I took a few deep breaths as I was told the signal was strong and everything was right with the Matirx.  Then I ran upstairs and tried old faithful again nothing, by now a simmering sense of panic had set in. Finally I tried Steve's tablet.......Flatlined!!!!!!

In defeat I went to bed  and this morning I tried everything again and still sod all.  Even worse my Sky box no longer has an IP address, now I'm hoping that this is their glitch, and tonight when Iget home all will be right with my world.  If not I will be ringing Sky and askng politely what is happening with my connection before I hook the old router back up to see if that is the problem.

*Shakes fist at universe* Of all the friggin' times you do this to me! So dear friends as you gather round to watch, stream...and use other methods of viewing the boys.  Think of me cut off from you all, knowing I came so close to seeing Sam and Dean again only to see it cruelly snatched away *wibble*

It sounds crazy and cliched but try turning off the router then back on again.

I lost all Internet last weekend. I switched my Virgin router off and left it off while I went to work for the day. When I got home I switched it back on and it worked fine.

I did the whole turning on and off and then I tried a new splitter box and hey presto here I am! Fingers crossed this keeps working.

Oh NO!!! Damn the Universe all to HELL!!
I am sending good vibes your way so that you may get home, with your service all fixed up and able to see the loveliness that is Dean and Sam Winchester this evening!!
Let me know if you need me to make a Crossroads deal with the King of Hell, although he may not be in a dealing mood!!

Best of Luck!

Don't make any deals! I think it might be fixed, we'll just have to wait and see what happens. Thanks for all the good vibes though *G*

*Fingers crossed* I'm back and I'm hoping that I'm here to stay, it might have been a faulty spiltter box. I've changed it and so far so good.
