All ethernet connectivity went out on my main box........ poopers So I check the other box on the network...... IT'S FINE!? No way my magical deathbox can be broked! All parts and cables check out......... So, wierd........ The disheatening thing is, I don't know how I fixed it. Somewhere between three restarts and a safe mode along with two modem power cyclings and three router cyclings with an additional router reset, and a foray into Hijack This! it came back on. I deleted soemthing fishy in Hijackthis..... I cannot recall directly, but it said something about a content filter, and I'll be damned if I'm going to have any sort of filter installed on MY computer. So yeah....... I'm supposed to be literate comp wise, and I basically did the comp version of kicking the fender and starting it up a few times to see if the noise would go away.
