by "dead" i meant that i had 0.0 connection to the net.
long-story-short, it was indeed the telephone company's
modem that blew out. they were able to get one circuit
working, and they were content with that. but i was still
dead. this morning a telco technician [and friend] dropped
by with his tools and after several calls to the office for
my IP's and other info got me back online.
I have no idea how their router/modem works; i have no idea
how they were able to get my wife's PC back, much less my
(this is further OT, but FWIW, one guy suggested that a
power surge may have broken the modem/router. 30-35 years
ago a =real= modem ran at 1200 baud and was lightening fast.
obviously, i haven't kept up... .)
