Hmm.... I've never gotten that one before. I just moved and switched from Cable to DSL, and I've never gotten that from the Cable I used to have. What company is your Cable supplier?

I don't know a whole lot about your connection since I've never used cable connections, but try using the dial up icon (like you would for a modem - but it's really just a RE-connection in this case). Of course, you will already be connected, but maybe you have to do that for the server to recognize your connection....

what operating system are you running

what type of nic (network interface card) do you have (internal, external, I have an ethernet to usb adapter so technically thats my nic)

what kind of modem do you have (internal, external)

do you have a network

do you have a hub or router

if you have any questions as to what a computer "thingy" is
go to

and type what it is in the search engine and hit "go"

"what's a router"?! I'm done.

Times have changed.

This is the first time I've seen a "bump" used in a while. Threads don't get pushed down much these days.
