    Thank you for clicking! There is some difficulty with my service that I can't articulate properly. Last night I couldn't get any page to load after 6:00 pm, despite my network connections seeming fine. My sister explained this with 'it's December and there are too many people on the internet and they are overloading it.' Sadly, I don't know any better than her, and I suspect that she is baloney. I only know that I had to 'wait for the internet to start working again' before posting here.

    Here is my network.txt:

    Does that ipconfig /all represent the no-internet time or does it represent internet access?

    What kind of service (DSL, cable, etc.) do you have?

    What is the brand and model of your modem (or modem/router) and router(s)?

    Did you check with your ISP to see if they had an outage at that time?
