Internet Crapped out today
Both computers, Blackbox and Flatbeast complained that they could to connect to the internet this morning. I decided to wait a while and see if the Internet would come back of it's own accord. No such luck. So some hours later I called Time Warner Cable's help number. They were actually very helpful and with a bit of troubleshooting we decided that the router had croaked. So, off to Staples to buy another $50 wifi router. The dead Belkin router was only three years old, but I guess they don't make 'em like they used to. So all I have to show for the old dead Belkin is a 12 volt wallwart that I can use on the HO train layout. All I had to do was introduce the computers t o the new Netgear router with a new WEP password. I even got my LG cell phone to recognize the new Netgear router. Now all I have to do is get a test photo off the LG cell phone and onto a computer.
