For some reason, my router and Comcast seem to have a poke-me-and-die sort of relationship. I changed the SSID for our wireless network, and that was enough to cause the whole setup to stop working. For a while, the router could ping/traceroute outside sites, but no connected computer could. Here's what eventually worked, for future reference.

  • Try what some site said a few times, fail.
  • Reset the router to factory defaults.
  • Default admin password is admin, router IP is
  • Change the SSID and maybe frequency, enable wireless encryption, set wireless password, set admin password.
  • Clone Chidori's Ethernet MAC address, which is 00:1e:c2:0c:eb:0a.
  • Hopefully it works?

Don't know why it stopped working in the first place, but that Japanese proverb about leeks Sam was reciting earlier.

Also, looks like Grotto!Dan may be joining the Claw and Thorn Fate campaign, assuming I figure out how to start this campaign without people dying.

EDIT: Also, I seem to have a preternatural ability to buy AAA batteries when I mean to buy AAs. I think the last 3 times I tried to buy AA batteries, I failed.
