Ugh ...

Well ... the GeekSquad "Agent" was here for about 2 hours this morning. I'm still on dial-up. We are closer to having a wireless DSL network, but we're not there yet. It seems our apartment (as is the case in many high-rises) is not particularly "radio friendly" ... we at one point had a wireless phone, and if you weren't in line-of-site of the base, it was real iffy for the connection ... something similar is happening witth the DSL signal. It looks like I'm going to have to install the tower thing somewhere in the middle of the apartment and jury-rig the connections to it. Hopefully if it's in the middle, all the random corners of the apartment where we have computers will be able to "see" it. I just wish the damn thing was up and running. I suspect that I'm going to need to get a range extender to get the signal back into my office, but we'll see. Tomorrow I get to drill holes in the walls ... I thought that was what the whole "wireless" thing was supposed to avoid!
