For the past several weeks, my Mac Mini has been losing Internet connection. At first it was a minor inconvenience, but then it started happening with greater frequency. I'd be in the middle of a blog entry... wham, lost connection. Half a dozen times daily, and more, I'd have to reboot to regain my connection and then sometimes it only lasted a little while. Since the Ipad had no connection issues, nor did Cliff's laptop, I figured it was a problem having to do with an Apple computer (yes, I realize the Ipad is also an Apple product).
I did some Google searching and found solutions I really didn't understand, but somewhere in there somebody suggested unhooking the modem for thirty seconds.
"That couldn't possibly help," I mumbled, "because Cliff's computer is having no problems. How can it be a modem problem?"
About this same time, it occurred to me that perhaps I was simply having a computer problem that might be happening even if I was using a PC, and decided to stop blaming Apple.
And I unhooked from the modem for thirty seconds.
I'm sure you've guessed it: My Internet connection is once again trustworthy. I'm always overlooking the obvious when it comes to computer problems.
I am picturing my daughter nodding in agreement at this point.
