Well, the Internet was down on my cable modem for 2 days! Was I crying or what? Finally, this afternoon, the local office cable guy came & fixed everything. And he told me there is a hacker who has been hacking into their servers at the cable company & stealing IPs! I always shut everything off when I'm done for the day. He told me never to shut off the cable modem box because when it is shut off then the firewall protection is gone & that's why when I boot back up, if it has been hacked, then the Explorer doesn't have any info to grab on to. Does that make any sense to anybody? I don't understand all of this technical stuff, but thought I'd pass it on. Anyhow, from now on, the cable modem box stays on at night.
