UPDATE: I finally figured out that my port is busted. How did it happen? No clue. It's an old computer (2003), but how do these things just suddenly stop working? So now I am using a wireless card and all is well.
It is so NOT unplugged!
I have been without home internet since the 23rd. That's a very long time. The error message says, "A network cable is unplugged". I've received this message before, but eventually, the internet connection DID return.
Not this time.
I even have a brand spanking new modem and cables from Telus, but still no access. Telus has washed their hands of me, telling me there is nothing wrong with the connection.
It's my computer.
I'm at the public library right now, staring at a HUGE screen intended for old people.
Back to school on Monday...
