So, getting back into the swing of things after the move has proven to be more difficult than I expected. My intention was to take off a few days to get organized, but those few days morphed into a few weeks. I have to blame part of my absence on technology. The few posts I was able to manage were part of a slow and painful process. Want to know the best way to appreciate fast wifi?
Deal with no wifi or slow and spotty wifi–
When you’re accustomed to having pages load within seconds and the ability to access wifi from any spot in your house, slow and unruly wifi signaling causes such a headache. Apparently the in-line DSL filter and splitter (the tiny box that was attached to our phone line at the old house) was a much needed item for the move. I wasn’t sure about removing it… didn’t want to leave the next home owners without a device that should have been there… so I left it… Our internet provider suggested I replace it before troubleshooting because that was probably the root of all evil as far as our crappy signal went. So after a visit to the big store they suggested I try and finding they did not have this in stock, I ended up ordering one online.
I have to confess that no wifi was a bit liberating. Being non-communicado felt like;
However… liberation became limitation when we needed to get things done.
Funny how perspectives can change like that.
I’m glad to report that with the new in-line splitter attached, we are seeing improvement. It’s still not as fast as the last house, but I’m sure there are more kinks that require attention. Got to choose the battles carefully and one at a time.
So, I’m excited to be fully back on-line and just in time for the holiday schedule to get everything out of whack again. Happy Friday!
