Is This Thing On?????
Am I actually online???? I'm not really too sure.
After having the net die on me almost two Wednesdays ago now; dealing with some pretty incompetent tech support (do you speak english?); rebooting the computer a billion times; finally getting one modem that would refused to work; waiting 5 days for telus to mail out another modem, which wasn't the one they promised which still didn't work. Go through tech support again (reboot; unplug modem; plug in modem; change ip addresses... yaddayaddayadda and still the LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY pop up kept appearing which meant, you guessed it, NO CONNECTIVITY) get booked for a tech guy to come out, wait all day Wednesday, no tech. Phone call at 8:30 at night, the tech was sick you'll be the first on the list at 8am Thursday. Different tech shows up at 11 (he at least knew what he was doing). An hour to figure out that nope, its not us or anything we did, something, somewhere on their end. Apparently he went out to a box somewhere and moved some wires around, came back, seemed to work. Hooked up, got internet and left.
Except... I'm left with trying to get the old computer to work and to figure out this wireless gateway because you see I've been without a PRINTER for the last 2 weeks. Yes, fun, you can imagine.
And the installation disc for modem #2 seems to be oh what's the word, corrupted? It keeps installing the telus ecare then goes on an endless cycle of reboot, install telus ecare and reboot.
So if I'm silent for awhile longer yet, its because nothing is working right.
