Two days ago (Thurs, 4/9) the internet went down in the morning and we got a text message saying that there was an outage in the area.

Furthermore, the wifi offered by our apartment complex (also Comcast) was also down. We checked all connections, power cycled everything, and ran all of the automated modem resets and diagnostics offered by Comcast. Calling, texting, or trying to report issues to the company all lead us back to these diagnostic tests which tell us we're fine even when we're not, and then ultimately disallow us from progressing to anyone that we can tell that WE DO NOT HAVE INTERNET thankyouverymuch.
