Video made when my internet went down!

Even called Cox and scheduled a fix. Got a call later on that it had been an outage that was fixed XD

To Do or Not to Do

Josh and I have been talking about going from Cox to U-verse. Cox is continually getting worse and worse. The internet is getting slower, and the television is constantly becoming unreliable. If we did, we’d have to rearrange the living room, including a new TV stand for corner, simply because of how and where the jacks for the U-verse series would be at.

My parents recently got U-verse, and it’s been speedy fast, and reliable. I need that. I’m tired of the internet being so slow that a 3-minute video takes 15 minutes to upload.

Well, we’re not going to make the decision right now. We probably won’t switch but at least I know that we have options. A few years ago, we didn’t. AT&T DSL is so not worth the cost, but U-verse is definitely more reliable.

Wireless Networking Problems

Question/Problem: When I hook up my wireless router, my PC no longer connects, but the Wii can, without a problem

Operating System and VERSION: PC: Windows XP SP2, and then whatevers on the Wii

Web Browser and VERSION: Firefox 2.0.0.11 for the PC, Opera for the Wii

Your level of experience: Seasoned with certain things, beginner with routers

Duration of problem: It’s been happening for awhile. My ISP (Cox) says it’s not them, but since I can connect with at least one internet-capable machine, I’m inclined to believe. It worked for awhile, but then stopped, and then would again, and then stopped again. We usually have to keep the router disconnected most of the time.

Any steps you’ve taken to troubleshoot? I’m not sure of which I can take. I’ve tried it with the router on, but the Wii off, and still have nothing. It’s already password-protected and all that good stuff.

I’m not sure if this info matters:
We’re not sure if it’s the computer (it’s slowly dying a painful death). We’re purchasing a laptop as soon as tax return comes in (should be by the end of the week), and we’re hoping that both of us can get on the computers at the same time. We’re purchasing a new tower in a few months (laptop is a priority, since I’m going to be going out of town, and still want to be in better contact than just phone with my husband).

The internet and digital cable are down, as off this moment. Cox is down-down. No ideas on when it’s going to be back up. It freaking pisses me off sometimes. There was extreme tiling for two days! TWO DAYS! And now they’re fixing it? With no warning (checked what e-mailed – went out around 8am, it’s now 11am). I hope it’s up sometime, because I’ve got things I need to do. I’m tired of dealing with the internet at this point in time.

Well, at least it’s giving me some time to get things done that I need to get done. I need to do tags for members. I didn’t do any Sunday, because Josh was off. I didn’t do any yesterday, because I had a bitchin’ migraine courtesy of sleeping bad. Today? Today’s I gotta do, today’s I will get done, XD. I also have to choose tags to go up in the area, available for sale, 🙂

To Do List For Today:

  • Tags for members (06, 07, 08)
  • Laundry (*gag*)
  • Plan the rest of dinner (already have chicken out and marinating)
  • Is it Thursday yet? Josh is off on Thursday, and we’re spending the day, at least part of it, checking out vehicles. We’ve found at least THREE vehicles in our price range. *sweet* I’m so excited about it. I wish we didn’t have to go through the hassle of buying a new vehicle right now, but man, I’m so excited to get something bigger than the POS we’re currently stuck with. That means I’ll get the nice vehicle to drive back and forth places. Madi won’t have to be embarrased when she gets to kindergarten by her mommy’s POS. Now, she’ll be riding in a nice vehicle.

    Speaking of purchases, we’re now looking at PC’s, and maybe something a bit better than the one we saw previously at Best Buy. I honestly have no clue what we’re going to purchase, :lol:. Josh wants a quad-core. I want a quad-core, but we found a dual-core with up to 8gigs of memory. That would kick some majorly serious ass!! I want a PC that kicks ass, :lol:.

    So totally me

    I finally got the Bluetooth working on the cell (first attempt, too), and got it modified to so totally suit me.

    Ringtone: Pirates of the Carribean theme, XD

    Too cute, right? Of course, drama can’t be stopped with the PC, so I’m just gonna quote from my LJ:

    I hate the freaking toggle for Bluetooth. Josh accidentally clicked “dial-up” with Jesse’s phone and it nearly killed me, LOL!!

    Josh fixed it!! It wasn’t connecting with the right IP address 🙁 It was connecting with some 192.whatever instead of Cox’s 255.whatever, *sniffle* Now it’s all working though. I’d already given up on it and pretty much had a meltdown, LOL. He never once faltered, except bitching about how slow the computer was running, XD.

    Figures, right? If you find the IOGear bluetooth reading thing for the PC, don’t buy it, unless you plan on redoing your network settings constantly!
