My frickin Airport Extreme may have croaked...

Done all the usual stuff...Reset the modem. Soft reset on the router. Reboot (both hot and cold) the mac.

Airport utility doesn't even SEE it as of yet. Meh.

Getting ready to do a Hard reset. If this doesn't do it, reckon I'm off to get a new router...


I love technology! But only until it screws me over! Hah!

Currently hardwired into the damned cable modem. That reminds me...I need to look into an ether port switch of some kind. The extreme has three Ethernet connections but wiring my mac and 360 into it is not really practical as the damned thing is in another room! So I need to look for some kind of inexpensive switch.

Router Fix: Easier Than I Thought...

Back in Bidness...

Apparently my soft reset wasn't soft enough or long enough. I had spent most of the afternoon with my laptop tethered to the Internet (cable modem). I had unplugged the Extreme and was letting it languish there without power for several hours.

When I plugged it back in - Airport Utility wasted no time in finding it and diagnosing the Internet was broken...Another quick reboot of the (cable) modem and SPROING! TexasT's is back online!

Saved me some money, that did.

Now...about that Ethernet switch...
