A techno odyssey

Doggone internet connection

leave a comment »

We kept losing our internet connection, leading to the really annoying need to disconnect the router, reconnect it and wait for the lights to flash their way back to allowing us internet access so that we could resume whatever task had been interrupted. It was happening up to eight times a day. Our dog sitter guessed the problem might be that the phone was too close to the router and interfering with the signal, which had been the case at his parents’ place. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get the phone and router the recommended 10 feet away from each other in the dinky alcove that serves as our office, but as we used to do with quarrelsome kids, we got them far enough apart that things appear to have settled down. I’ve had to reboot only once in the past three days. Smart guy. And the dogs like him, too.
