The kicker today was when we couldn't access any pages whatsoever. I could feel my blood pressure going up as I tried in vain to fix things. It just got worse. I phoned for help and had someone scheduled for the next day.
One last time I tried plugging in the modem and router. I couldn't load my home page but I just carried on and opened up a different web page and lo and behold there it was. All the pictures were there. It loaded quickly. Everything works. Hooray. I'm back baby.
