it wasn't my router at all but my ISP!
Back when I was in VA, i decided to no longer rent my modem and purchased the exact same model they were using - that way I knew it worked.
Then one day... nothing! called up the cable company and I found out they had reset my connection and I had to give them the serial off my router so it could work again.
so yeah, it wasn't me, the computer, or the router but my isp
who'd have thunk?
