Walk down to the furnace room and make sure no one has turned off a red emergency switch to the boiler. If you see a switch in the off position, turn it on. If you can't find any switches turned off, call Rob....
Unplug all the hairdryers that overloaded the circuit. Look for the breaker panel in your unit. Look for one of the breakers to be slightly out of column with all the others. Push the breaker AWAY from the direction of all the other breakers, and then once it has reset, push in back in column going the SAME direction as all the other breakers.

When you are connected to the network but there is no internet, then you are connected to your router (linksys) but the router is not getting the internet from the Modem (Motorola). Unplug only the power to your router. Go to the modem, generally in the laundry room and unplug the power to that as well. Unplug the power to the router in the laundry room. Wait 2 minutes and plug the power back into the modem (with the TV cable attached to it) then plug the power back into the laundry room router, then plug the power back into the router in your unit. Wait few minutes and you should be back on line. Never disconnect any cables other than the power cable.
If this does not work, call Rob... DO NOT RESET YOUR ROUTER!
Get a plunger, rapidly pump up and down about 15 times. Finish by pulling up hard on the last pump. Do this a number of times until the clog is clear. Don't use one of the brown rubber plungers... they are useless.
First thing, down under the toilet tank is a water valve. Reach down and turn this clockwise. This will shut off the water.
