I’ve just spent the last 3 days trying to figure out why our broadband connection decided to become slower than dial-up.
At first I thought it was the cloudy days we were having but yesterday was clear and it still didn’t work. I checked for a virus, restored to an earlier date and still nothing. We have 2 computers set up for wireless and the router and modem are in the basement directly below us.
We have only had it for a month and first the modem was bad and had to be replaced after about 4 calls with a tech…….even though I did what the manual said to do ONCE and if it didn’t work the modem was bad. The biggest problem with getting tech help is the fact that I can’t hardwire the modem to my computer because of our setup.
So this time I call and pretty soon I am told they will not help me unless I take my computer to the basement……I have 2 EHDs, a printer/fax/copier and more hooked up. There is nothing wrong on their end. Today I realized I could borrow my dads laptop and check with it. So off I go to get that but before I left I set a file to download which showed it would take almost 6 hours. I got back in about 2 hours and the file was downloaded and our connection is fast again.
Hmmmmmm I didn’t change anything but I’m not going to complain too much, at least I’m back on the internet.
