    All pro, if you're internet crashed it could just be problems in your area with weather, or other types of common issues. Try rebooting your modem/router and trying it again. If you have been caught downloading, your ISP will usually contact you so I doubt that's it, or you would have been contacted.

    You can't change that. It will change on it's own once you gain enough posts to not be considered a novice anymore. I would suggest not interrupting others threads with your questions though :wink: If you have questions you can ask a staff member in the Talk to the staff section.

    Your ISP torrents stuff? Cool! I wish Time Warner was that cool.

    You mean you were downloading with torrents, so you think your internet died?

    Your ISP would likely contact you if that had caught you downloading illegal content. Besides, copyright infringement is a civil suit, so the people who would be coming after you for downloading copyrighted material would be those who owned the rights to it.

    Try recycling your router, and if it doesn't work, call your ISP. Ask if there are any outages in your area. There probably are.

    If not, you could have a problem with your wireless card if this is a laptop, etc. You might also have a problem with your router being set up wrong, and the person you call can probably guide you through fixing that.

    Have you installed anything weird that might have screwed with your wireless internet settings, etc.?
