Silly proxy, silly me

My bad luck with computers didn’t stop, it has affected my webhost and thousands of sites were down for a few hours.

Meanwhile, I need to get my NAS working and backup some files on my gaming computer,
so that I can pull out one of it’s harddisks to use on my other computer,
so that I can access the other harddisk on my server computer to check for backups.

I got the NAS to work after a lot of crazy troubleshooting which involved disturbing a friend and pulling out a spare modem and having wires run all over the place.

Turns out that  I confused DNS server with proxy server and I didn’t disable the proxy server setting in my browser. Thus I couldn’t access anything in my own LAN because it was going through the proxy.
