Part III Highjacked ISP + laptop demise + Birds Nest wrecked my phone service

Not to drag out this story of my technical snafus:

Hijacked WIFI…

Defunct laptop

Bird’s nest destroying my phone connection

Over the last five days various people helped me navigate the nexus of WIFI/laptop/birds/routers for which I am very grateful. I carefully ventured back onto the WIFI and internet, but…..I was having trouble connecting still. (UHoh.) Made the call to iphouse and told them that connectivity was not working.  Step by step Phil helped me reset my WAN, after we determined the Russian ip was still showing up in my router DNS address.

Notes:  Security is not always secure. Some hackers just try to ping a router to see if it will respond.  It could have been something I clicked – original theory.  However, now I know if things slow down with the WIFI connection, to check the DNS regularly to make sure it’s correct on any tool that connects to the router. This particular breech was not something that the tech person had ever seen in many years of doing support.

Yes, this is all really took place and is not a fiction.

Have a happy day.
