AH! one thin i have has problems with over the years is
cars hitting power poles somewhere and that knocks me off.
After last time i put everything thru my highend surge
protecter. EVERYTHING was live. i had never [not once in
ten years] had the "Internet" flow go south. mine has been
green. i saw that all LED's were lit and never thought to
see if the lights were all-green or not! live and learn.
so, along with "check routers/switches; maybe power cycle"
i have use named debug, use traceroute.

from as glitch in this telco router. but since the APC UPC
has its own surge filter, i'm thinking, why not/?
