So earlier I spent four hours fighting invisible network gnomes and buying stuff I didn't need and talking to the ISP and not fixing it, and also hurting my knee. Now I'm out $70 and I walk funny and I didn't even [PUNCHLINE].
I came home around midnight to discover that the network came up on its own at 8 pm. WTF.
But now I have 15%-20% packet loss. So I opened another ticket with the ISP, and I'm not buying a new DSL modem until they tell me what REALLY happened.
I'm a professional and this one has me running in tight little circles. What happens to everyone else? GAAAH!
