As I mentioned earlier this week, my desktop computer wouldn't access the Internet, even though the laptop was connecting.
I was going to take my computer tower for a checkup and fix; we just hadn't gotten around to it. And since I do have a spare computer, I wasn't in a huge hurry.
Today I remembered that when my printer wasn't working and I asked readers for help, several suggested that I unplug it and then plug it back in and reboot. That worked great.
Sometimes the unplugging and plugging back in works for televisions, too.
So I figured it wouldn't hurt to try it with my computer.
My old motto was, "If all else fails, reboot."
My new motto is, "If rebooting doesn't work, try unplugging it for awhile.
I love it when it's that easy a fix.
