The gremlins are back and I am going crazy. When we got home Wednesday evening, I had no connection to the internet. I was convinced it was a "signal" problem and was poised (on Thursday morning) to call my ISP in order to chat with one of its friendly Techs in India. But before I did. . .
I decided to first try to reconnect through my old ethernet hub and. . .lo and behold. . .I was back online. But without the wireless router, no one else in the house was. I couldn't get the ethernet to work on Donna's computer and my laptop was dependent on the wireless network to gain access to the outside world.
Today I spent about 2 hours trying to reinstall the wireless router but it insists that it is not receiving an internet signal. Alas, alack and many other stronger epithets!
So here I am back via the ethernet hub and when I post this, I will figure out how to get Donna's computer to work on it as well. I do need some luck and a lot more patience than I have had the past couple of days.
