hmm, read a book? and also scream at the trees.
 
Realize that I'll have to drive to work to get anything done...
 
Reset my modem over and over again, then drink. :)
 
Laugh at all the people who think that the Internet could actually be down...  Oh wait, do you mean my specific link to the Internet... :)
 
There should be one for *What to do what the power is out*. Cos where I live, we've had a few power outages recently. :/
 
you really mean go outside???!?!?!?!?!
 
Turn on the Wifi tehter on my Galaxy Nexus.. ;-)
 
I had a two day long internet blackout last weekend because some doofus was screwing around with the cable box out behind my building. 

I thought I was going to die. 
 
Read a book, watch Doctor Who, play offline games.  And be annoyed about the internet being down when I was planning to use it!
 
Drown my sorrows at a coffee shop with some friends ;)
 
Get a bag of chips and some alcohol. Pop in a good movie and try to remain calm. 
 
Sadly mine has been down for a few days. Glad though for my android tablet and cell. The need for the fix is gotten ;-)
 
90% of the time when I do loose network it is because of the ISP and usually it isn't because of some hardware issue or no fault of their own. It is most the time stupidity involved.
 
I better die, because I could not live without the internet ....!!!!!
 
I've humorously found myself playing guitar, writing a hot blues song about how my internet is out two-timin' me...
 
EXCUSE ME, DO YOU SPEAK SPANISH I DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH, I LIVE IN COLOMBIA. GLAT TO MEET YOU.
 
Luv this pic where did u get it from
 
Scream at my cable provider and tell them "I pay way too much money for this to happen!!"
 
Rent a deadly romantic movie n get drunk.lol

 
Grab my laptop and goto my pool deck to steal/piggyback the neighbors wifi. Works all the time. :D
 
There's enough room in that infographic for a "Blame Rogers;" couple

thank you for providing free-wifi at Pearson, I can't totally hate you
 
This is awesome and surprisingly accurate!
 
Happened today at work. We can't do anything without internet access since all our work is remote. So we used a phone with a data plan for music streaming, created a batch file to endlessly ping (even while the domain couldn't be resolved), and played a bit of Minesweeper. Then someone called the tech guy who messed up our network and he fixed it. It was the first time in my life that I was disappointed to have internet access re-enabled.
 
Einer der besten windows-Hinweise in solchen Fällen ist, wenn das Internet nicht (mehr) funktioniert: "Hilfe im Internet suchen?"

Hiking if it happen during weekend & the weather permit me to do so :)))
 
i think i would do all those things then jump off the roof out of boredom, then hope the hospital you go to does have internet
 
play board games - maybe a game of crib - or crazy 8's  :)
 
Yell at the computer, then do something else, lik reading
Translate
 
what the heck some one said something weird yet gross
 
Lol "Paint your feelings." That painting is epic. :]
 
Scream and throw a tantrum ( so not my age. I know ) then calm down and realize I have my iPod :)

Repeatedly click refresh ;-]
 
Haha that's a good one! Got to share this for sure.
 
Yell At my computer and throw any nearby objects at it 😎 
 
What's sad is that I know most of us have done at least two of these... Smh. We are a sad generation.
 
I usually run  tracert -d 18.9.x.y  (an MIT address) repeatedly.
 
keep pressing the on/off button on the modem til i get so frustrated i break it
 
i think ive done all of these,nah just kidding i probaly havent done 2 or 3 of them
 
Wow! Ironic, I just got my internet back today!
 
i ask god why me, hum, and click refresh
 
Throw my phone at my wife for not paying the friken bill on time, drag the kids outside and force em to pull some weeds, kick the dog, slap my mother-n-law, spit on the neighbor, throw poop at the passing cars.....oh wait, sorry....flashback.
 
haha thts meee! the one where u keep clicking refresh...
 
I'd probably wind up googling for a list of Top 10 bloggers who are experts on the subject.
 
Or go to the gym and workout because you've been siting behind that PC/Mac shit for toooooo looong!!!
Oh here is another option, fuck social network! go ahead and have a real social life!?!? Ha?! Don't you agree?
You should be happy about!
Then stop nagging and read a fucking book!
Book: something that you can read and you don't need to charge it every fucking eight hours!!!
Happy now?!
No need to thank me....

 
What is the app you use to Tether with your Galaxy Nexus? I was using Fox Fi but with Jelly Bean OTA Sprint update does not work anymore:-( . 
 
Lol that's funny. I just yell at it like an idiot and I'm like what the crap I payed lots for this to work and its not!!!!!!
 
Learn to live without it. We have survived before without the web...
 
I nervously pace, click refresh a lot and go eat and watch tv
 
i clean up my room..tidy up all the mess help my mom at the kitchen do something better while my internet connection back..
 
(( I pace back and forth, sit in fetal position and humming quietly,paint my feelings,click refresh repeatedlly and EAT DOUGHNUTS .....I do to much of this))
 
Nothing... I do absolutely nothing! One time in '05 I lost network, some jerkoff suggested working out but that made My armpits wet (not doing that again) so I just sit and imagine how many wireless reps I'll punch in the throat until I'm up and running. 
 
+Sara Rae Then why are you on here too? I would ask myself the same question, but besides this and Facebook (for reasons due to my decaying family) I use the internet for school, job applications, and art inspiration for my art class.
 
hey sara rae: you have one to so you be a nice person a close your hole
 
I've been known to just go to sleep and hope it's back up later. If not sleep some more.
 
my only question is what if it's off ONLY on the one website you use most because your papa is taking all the bandwith by playing Lord of the Rings online?
Anna Ma
 
Where's the 'sleeping' part?
 
God, this made me way more happy then it should have :3
 
That covers just about everything

Everything but paint my fellings!.... Coz i can't paint shit! :D
 
Personally, I just take out my Kindle and let the evening roll by ;) nothing can compare to a good book in the end.
 
Turn it off and on again..
 
Or just go read a book waiting for sleep that is elusive.

I'd start calling people up out of boredom, go shopping for groceries/window shop, play games, write poetry, or sleep lmao
 
I have done almost all of those things when the web internet connection is down.

CALL ISP first..... Then call CISCO.... They have the best tech support!... :D
 
Haha, repeatedly clicking refresh is true on me :-) Well, until I remember the WiFi hotspot on my phone! 
 
I click refresh....and then shut the computer off in frustration
 
I click refresh a few times and when that doesn't work I restart my comp and if that doesn't work I completely shut down my comp and if even that doesn't work then... I shut it down completely once more and let it rest for a while... meanwhile I read or something then go back to it later... something in there usually works
 
yes we ask God why? and the other thing is that communication goes down too,so we end up playing silly games.

My Internet will never go down... I'll just steal my neighbors wifi lol.
 
Just forget about it for the time being, there are many things left unattended to at home, so carry on with the house hold chores.

If u r that addicted to Internet it is time get some exercise u canv live without Internet & TV-find an elderly person who needs some help w shopping-get out of self & into others-I have lived 5 years wo TV- I refuse to pay for things that were once free & if it has a Satanic symbol in the logo I will never support that business
 
you should smile and think that internet very simillar to our.when they are very tired , they need to be have rest ...so at moment,we should have rest with them,..or can do different something,,,...
 
I'd go to starbucks for coffee and free wifi ;)
