We got a new laptop this week. It initially hooked up to our wireless network beautifully, but then suddenly decided it didn't like us anymore and just stopped. It could see the network, but refused to connect.

I fought the damn thing for days. I shut it off & back on again more times than I can count -- because I've learned that the golden rule for anything computer-related is "when it doubt, turn it off & back on again".

Once I'd tried everything I could, I called the computer company. The guy started off telling me to shut down the wireless network. Um, but why? It's working just fine, and the other computer is connected. I had to boot Donald off his game (he did not shoot me for it, thankfully), but I did it.

BAM! Laptop connects, instantly, as soon as the network comes back up.

:::smacks head::: When in doubt, shut it ALL off!!!
