|Montana Bengal| Posted December 17, 2016 Report Share Posted December 17, 2016 So I've got this strange issue. I've lost my internet connection twice in about the last month. I've rebooted my router, the modem, etc and that doesn't seem to resolve the problem. I added a used 'HP Compaq Elite 8200' to my network (wired) and it is running linux mint. I've reinstall mint on a brand new drive so I don't think there is anything specific about my install. It does seem like when I unhook this machine that my internet issue resolves itself. SInce I picked this up used....could this machine be trying to call home to a previous owner or something? Is there security on it that I might be missing?
