When Programmers Net Goes Down

As a programmer, having a reliable internet connection is crucial for me to get my work done. Unfortunately, there are times when my net goes down, and it can be frustrating and stressful.

Step 1: Troubleshooting

The first thing I do when my internet connection is lost is to troubleshoot the issue. I start by checking my router and modem to make sure they are working correctly. If everything seems to be in order, I move on to checking my device settings.

const checkRouter = () => {
  if (routerStatus === 'connected' && modemStatus === 'connected') {
    console.log('Router and modem are both connected');
  } else {
    console.log('There seems to be an issue with the router or modem');

const checkDeviceSettings = () => {
  if (wirelessSettings === 'on' && networkStatus === 'connected') {
    console.log('Device settings are correct');
  } else {
    console.log('There seems to be an issue with the device settings');


Step 2: Resetting the Router

If troubleshooting doesn't work, I try resetting my router. I unplug it from the power source and wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in. This usually fixes any connectivity issues with the router.

const resetRouter = () => {
  console.log('Resetting the router...');
  routerStatus = 'disconnected';
  modemStatus = 'disconnected';
  setTimeout(() => {
    routerStatus = 'connected';
    modemStatus = 'connected';
    console.log('Router has been reset successfully');
  }, 5000);


Step 3: Using a Different Network

If resetting the router doesn't work, I try switching to a different network. I can either use my mobile hotspot or connect to a public Wi-Fi network. This helps me stay connected and continue working, even if my primary network is down.

const useMobileHotspot = () => {
  console.log('Connecting to mobile hotspot...');
  networkStatus = 'connected';
  console.log('Connected to mobile hotspot successfully');

const connectToPublicWiFi = () => {
  console.log('Connecting to public Wi-Fi...');
  networkStatus = 'connected';
  console.log('Connected to public Wi-Fi successfully');


In conclusion, when the programmer's net goes down, it can be a frustrating experience. However, by following these steps, I can troubleshoot the issue, reset my router, and switch to a different network to continue working without any interruptions.
