Big boom.  No electricity, no phone, no internet.  
They just replaced the transformer on the pole.
Got lights, cable now.  No phone.

No connection from the new Lenovo ThinkServer TS140.
Booted modem and the Cisco router, still no internet on the Lenovo.
Plugged in one of the USB wireless adapter and it's working with that but the one that's built in the motherboard is gone.  Oh well.
Guess I'll get a plug in card and install it sometime, no way to ever fix the built in one on the motherboard.

And...
The landline doesn't work. Honey called Centurylink and they took the information, said when they tried to call it gave a busy signal.
I guess that's what it does if it's shorted out somewhere.

They said if the problem was outside they'd fix it for free. But, if they had to come inside to fix it there would be a service charge for sending them out. I'm sure it's their line but told them not to come inside. They said service charge anyway. So if they try to charge I'll have them take the line loose while they're here and we'll do without a land line.

Honey told them she was calling using out magicjack. The woman asked me for my cell phone in case they needed to contact me.
Told her I didn't have a cell phone. She asked if she could put down the magicjack so they could contact me.
I said they could try, theirs sure as hell couldn't call me on their service.

They'll be here tomorrow before 7:00 PM.

Sounds like the weekend from hell. It's easy for me to question why anyone would own a landline anymore but I realize the expense of a cellphone. Your MJ works well and you can't beat the price for sure.

Love that time range for arrival. Sometime tomorrow before 7. Sheesh.

We have phone service.  The phone we were using is dead though,
guess the lightning got it.

One magicjack, the one Honey messed with last night and cut us off is working again.

The other magicjack is not but the phone we had hooked up to it works fine hooked to the landline.  I've fooled with the 2nd magicjack but haven't done any good.  Maybe can swap out the charger on it and see if that's what it was but probably lost it to the lightning as well.

Looks like we had more damage from the lightning than we thought at first.

I assumed too much.

It appears that the damage is to the Cisco router but I haven't fully tested yet.
The remaining magicjack quit working, tried a bunch of things to no avail.
Woke up from a nap and went in and hooked it to another port on the router,
when I tried the phone it said "Wait" then didn't work. Moved to the next port
on the router and it's up and running again.

I'm guessing right now but I expect the other magicjack will work as well if it gets a new working router port and the Lenovo ThinkServer probably doesn't have anything wrong with the internet connection LAN port. Hope so.
