klaatu

Welcome to the 21st Century

My in-laws finally ordered DSL. The install kit came yesterday. Guess who installed it for them?

Good thing I was here too--I got it hooked up, but something wasn't quite right. I was getting a lot of pauses and it wasn't much faster than dialup. I diagnosed the problem as a faulty extension run from the termination block, and re-ran the phone wire, thus turninng broken 1Mbps into working 5Mbps.

I got the wireless working so I can actually use the Internet now.
