Well, this is really weird.
This morning, my cable modem dropped out. Apparently, instead of cloning Blake’s laptop, I cloned one of my old network cards in one of my old machines–which haven’t been plugged into the router in half of forever–into the router that powers the network.
So, now, I can connect with my laptop [because I gave them the MAC address of the integrated network controller], but I can’t hit the router. At all. I need to look up tech support on the router while I’m connected to the Internet before I try to get in there and make the bloody thing work.
-sigh- I had things to do tonight. Such is life.
