Yesterday Andy had the cable company come over and upgrade our TiVO box, remove a cable box, and upgrade another to TiVO mini. Amidst all this, he had them take their wireless point away because he wanted to use the one he had. Unfortunately, he thought the wireless he owns already had {insert technological term here} capabilities. He spent HOURS trying to get the modem to work, but it wouldn’t. Finally he researched it more to find it didn’t have {insert technological term here} capabilities. It was a feature the company was adding on later but never actually did.

Instead he drove all the way to his parents house last night to grab his old wireless access point he hasn’t used in YEARS. Unfortunately, this wireless access point has unceremoniously crapped the bed. So now we’re 24 hours without wireless internet. It’s annoying to say the least, but at least I can still get online with my computer. I just have to plug into the modem directly. WELCOME TO 2003! 

Andy is going to stop by the store on his way home from work and get the things he needs so we can have wireless. Until then, I guess this will be like practice time for when I leave for Italy next week.

  1. We take for granted our internet speed and having wireless until we don’t have it available to us! Haha, back to 2003 you go! 🙂
