Internet Driving Me Crazy
Man! I am so fed up with these Internet issues. I have had DSL and Cable service, four routers, wired and wireless, new modems and my Internet continues to drop out again and again and again. We have two desktops and three laptops and we have dropouts on both wired and wireless. Every piece of hardware in our network has been replaced, even computers. This problem has been going on for several years. Tonight is a particularly bad night with my Internet struggling to stay on for five minutes at a time. The only thing that I can think of is that my old house and power lines are flaky. Our wires are above ground and have been through countless thunderstorms and ice storms. I have a power transformer on the power pole in my backyard. I just noticed this evening that my cable Internet line coming from the pole has no ground on it.
I am so tired of this ongoing problem. Last week we bought a brand new expensive router and the dropouts continued. At least with the new router, the dropouts are able to fix themselves after a few minutes. Before I had to reboot the router and the modem just to get it to come back on. I can tell you I just want to scream like a little girl. When we pay $50.00 a month for ten years for service, you would hope that we could have decent service. It looks like moving out of here is the only way we are going to get it fixed. I just needed to vent some more.
Thanks for listening.
