Modem. Router. Not fun at all trying to get them to talk to each other. Anyway, that’s something different. Lots of pinging going on to test connections without opening Firefox and it’s many tabs. ping bbc.co.uk – no problem. wordpress.com – no problem. cnn.com – get nothing. Damn connection must have gone, check settings. No change, still cannot ping. Look harder – still nothing. Ater much poking around I realise that the problem is with cnn – they are unpingable by me. Or at the very least I don’t get the pong. cnn.com / www.cnn.com I get time outs. Odd – and very frustrating when I’m trying to get two bits of kit talking to each other.
