    Internet

    How can I say in a short sentence that "during last two days I had no possibilities to use the Internet"? E.g., "I was out-of-web" or "out-of-Internet" would be correct?

    Re: Internet

    I'm very far away to involve in some discussions for the correct and literate English-American language, but I think this question doesn't belong to this Forum.

    There is very big difference between web and internet.

    The Internet, or simply the Net is the publicly accessible worldwide system of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using a standardized Internet Protocol (IP).
    *

    WWW (or simply the "Web")* is a global information space which people can read and write via computers connected to the Internet
    *

    *The quotes have been taken from Wikipedia.

    If I'm wrong please correct me and tell me where is my mistake.

    Well, Zoriv, I don't understand your post at all. This is a forum that you can ask a teacher about using English, so I did it: I don't know how to say something in English. Web and Internet were not the subject of my post. Though, I see that I made a mistake and it's nice that you corrected me. Please read the post again: did I ask you what is the difference between Web and Internet?

    Re: Internet

    'I was offline' is what I'd use.
