Connectivity Problems

Monday, September 29, 2008

My internet connection has been going berserk since Thursday night. It comes and goes and goes and comes. I was in the middle of writing a post using my notebook when the connection first went bye-bye. After several maddening hours of troubleshooting and hoping and waiting for the connection to come back, I thought of transferring the Ethernet adapter to my ever-trusty, Jurassic desktop. I did and voila! I’m connected! I wondered, was there internet all along? The problem must be with the notebook. Then last Saturday, as D and I were chatting about the qualifications of Sarah Palin, I got disconnected again. Not again! So I called my provider’s hotline. The tech support personnel said that my base station (wherever or whatever that is) is having technical problems, which is the reason why I am also having connectivity problems. And they do not know when it will be resolved.

On the brighter side, since I wasn’t in front of the computer the whole time, I was able to finish two books over the weekend. Not being connected wasn’t really a problem after all.

If my Internet connection gets lost -

First reaction: PANIC. What am I going to do?
Second reaction: PANIC. Call my provider.
Third reaction: PANIC. Pack my notebook and pedal to the library for Internet connection until mine gets resolved.
