As a network engineer, whenever I have issues resolving a site that others can reach, I usually change my DNS settings as a first check. If I still encounter problems, I call my ISP.
Another geek.... LOL have you thought of the geek mods you will be doing ? I am slowly putting together a carputer for audio / visual entertainment when trapped inside by weather or late evening. See what you think: Audio - Video
I have stepped away from the raspberry though as it is not capable of dual video outs with out a lot of add-ons which makes the carputer the better contender.

Yep, geek...guilty as charged!. But, my job as a network security comsultant/engineer allows me to work from home a lot of the time, provided I have WebEx and an internet connection, so geekdom has its benefits. As for mods, I'm going to build an htpc with DC and ac power. Other than that, haven't given it much thought. The only real requirement is a good internet connection, and my Verizon hotspot should handle that most of the time. By this time next spring, when I have to do a consulting job, I hope to be doing it from a campground in my 17b sometimes instead of at home.

Oh, as for the raspberry pi, I've used them as a super small htpc platform for embedded or kiosk style systems with some good results.

I had high hopes for it.. read as really wanted to play with one :] But with what I want to do serving music / movies it would cost as much as a carputer and take less work. I have a couple of old Dell laptops with dock ports and 12v power supplies debating turning one of those into my server but size is an issue as I want to use the shelf above the table for it and the stereo system head unit. Since it serves no purpose for me.

There's also the option of using one of the old laptops with an external HDD, load it with Linux Mint, and run Plex on it. Does a very good job of transcoding, and will even do a fair job with 1080p in most cases.
