Here we go again...

All last week, through Tuesday night, I was beginning to believe that my connectivity problems were getting better. I felt hopeful. Tuesday evening, I was able to stay online for 70 minutes! I was the one to choose it was time to sign off.

Beginning yesterday morning, I was right back to only being able to stay connected between 2-10 minutes! Sometimes, unable to even connect at all.

 

Isn’t that strange? Hmmmm….. What are your thoughts?

If my son wasn’t watching and learning how to behave from me, I would smash this thing to pieces and toss it onto the lawn. But then, if he did the same thing to something, and was punished for it, what kind of message would that send? :P

If you don’t hear from me for a long time, you’ll know that for a moment, he looked away and I did it anyhow. ;-)

Ps…I plan on going shopping this weekend for a new modem to see if that resolves the problem. Wish me luck.

update:: Friday, Novemeber 5th.

I finally got a new modem today. So far, so good. Keep your fingers crossed for me... I just "might" be back soon!

Whoohoo! :)

ps ~ Have you any idea how dang hard it is to take one of these babies apart, find what you're look'in for, and put it  back together?  When you  have NO clue as to what you're doing?  That subject calls for a whole new entry...  ugh!

LOL... GOOD LUCK.  I'll keep my fingers [and eyes] crossed for ya, hon.  Hopefully, it's just a modem on the fritz.  I really hope this fixes things because we need you back!  Love you!  And don't go trashing the computer.  LOL

Have you had it checked out by a tech to see if there is a virus??   Oh, and about not wanting your son to see you smashing it up? Do you suppose he'd think it's ok if you put it in the oven like Lamb Chop?  LOL, just make sure to turn it up to broil....  : )

Miss ya, and hope you get things figured out soon...

I;ve had connectivity poroblems before.  sometimes I run that AOl Doctor thing, and it helps sometimes it doesn't.
sometimes it's virus, or a bug and it just tries to take over.  it's very frustrating!
I feel for ya.
hope things get better.

So glad to hear you disciplined yourself enough not to toss your computer to bits.  The new modem probably wouldn't do much good then. :P

I do know what it's like trying to replace parts in a computer, having no clue what the parts even are.  But we all start somewhere.  It's kinda fun figuring it out.  Frustrating.  But fun.
