Yesterday, my Dish Networks satellite went out and took 20 minutes to come back.
Also yesterday, my wife's bluetooth headset kept disassociating itself from her phone. She had to reset it several times.
Last night, my access point stopped working. From the access point, I could ping my DNS server. From my laptop, I could establish a wired and/or wireless connection to the access point, but from my laptop, I could not ping my DNS server. The same was true of my wife's laptop. I hadn't changed anything on my AP in months. Finally, I gave up, restored it to factory defaults, and set it up again from scratch. Now it works.
What's going on? Was there a solar flare I didn't hear about? Might it be that my 100 year old house is not providing "clean" electricity? Any ideas? Weird.
