If you live in Wisconsin and have Century-Tel as your internet provider, no need to check your computer or modem, it's fine. The problem is with Century-Tel. My Century-Tel service representative told me service would not be up until "sometime tomorrow."

The outage effects all users of Century-Tel, for example, many retailers credit card machines are useless, as well as gasoline, government workers, hospitals, banks...on and on it goes.

Try as I may, I was unable to get the cause of the outage, or more details.
