I’m tired of it. At least a few times a week, Eric shouts up from downstairs, “I lost the wireless again!” I’m in my office, connected via Ethernet to our Netgear WPN824 router. For no apparent reason, the @#$@% thing will completely lose its wifi. It’s not Comcast, since I can still work wired without a problem. It’s not Vonage, since I’ve switched the Vonage adapter to sit behind the router. It’s not a coverage issue, since it doesn’t matter if you’re 5 inches, 5 feet or 50 feet away. I’ve tried changing the channels. Nothing seems to work. The SSID disappears from all computers. It’s just the router being finicky. A few resets later, and the wifi is back until the next outtage.
So enough is enough…
Eric is out of the country next week (to Andorra this time) so having working wireless won’t be as important while he’s gone. Hopefully the new base station will be here by the time he gets back.
I could have purchased a much cheaper wireless router, but something tells me that this one will just work. Which is all I want.
