What do you do when you notice that your internet connection goes out and there's nothing you can do until it comes back?

go somewhere else with wi-fi, or watch my Harry Potter blu-rays until the internet comes back

I think I also have games downloaded that don't require internet

Imagine yourself in a situation where you had no cell signal then, how would you answer this question?

it'd finally convince me to get off my ass and go outside for one at my local park. or perhaps read a few books from my local library -- I've always wanted to but alas, this thing called the internet is just far too addicting.

I either just use data, or reset the connection on my laptop, since it's usually my laptop that's the issue, lmfao. I have p good wifi that doesn't really go out.

My anxiety will usually be up a lot tbh. I tend to live on the internet, but not just for my friends. I use it a lot for researching and stuff. So, if it goes out for a while... it's often a pretty big deal for me at times. Since there's not much to be done and such... I often have to just wait it out and try to other things to pass the time. I might work on a story or do story notes... maybe even play Pokemon. The good thing about ours is that it doesn't go out that often where it's the internet side. It'll go out on occasion, but if you unhook it and rehook it... it's usually fine. If I really need to research something, I'll use data on my iPad through our cell provider.

Watch TV, read, nap, play video games. Maybe write on a notebook if I'm focused enough.

I would like to say I'd just use data until the internet is back but that's what everyone in the area is doing and my provider is... well. It doesn't do well at all when the towers are congested, so at crowded malls I have no service and I know from experience that the same is true when there's a mass power/internet outage. :catsad:

So I end up just sitting around doing nothing instead and feeling miserable, but not miserable enough to actually get out of the house and go find internet elsewhere, ahaha. So usually that means I play video games until it's back.

With my internet, it tends to go out a lot, but it only lasts from a few seconds to a minute or two. Usually I just groan and wait, but if it takes any longer, I just boot up a game that doesn't require internet, like Minecraft or Cube World.

I use my phone data for browsing/watching YouTube videos if that's what I'm killing time with at home if rebooting my router doesn't fix it, after calling my ISP to verify the outage.

This is assuming I'm not already doing something else when it goes out, but I won't notice much because my phone is also my background podcast device and I'll turn off wifi on that if my home wifi router is acting wonky anyway, even if my wired stuff is having no issues if I don't feel like logging in to my desktop to reboot my router.

Now if that goes out, I have problems, because I am technically on call 24/7. I'd probably have to ask a neighbor if I can use their wifi so I can message my boss saying my cell service has ate the dust. I would probably use that time to back up stuff on my phone and perform a factory reset to see if that fixes the issue.

cry tbh


Or get my lazy butt and be productive. Draw and read stuff on my queue. Or eat. Lately i've also been annoying my cat in internet less situations.

And data.

Sleep or play video games. Maybe finally even pick up a book and do some reading. The internet itself I wasn't really on for like two years so it's not really a big deal to me. Though I suppose it would suck not being able to watch anything but hey. There are options out there.

If it's on one of my days off and it's early enough Disney is an option too.

My internet was especially bad yesterday.. it kept crashing and it would stay down for what seemed forever.. Eventually I just gave up and played Cube World. When it came back up, I jumped to get things done but then it would just crash again haha
I thought it was the weather that made it act up but to be honest.. I think it just hates me 😅

Had a power cut not too long ago that scrapped the internet along with it, even after power came back. Took me 2 hours to get it fixed but I had to restart both my router and modem at the same time, modem first, then router.
