Tech dummies

I dare say a few of us have been thru broadband service provider changes.

I'm half way to getting fibre with my new provider and of course have a new hub.

You wouldn't believe it I've got 10 pieces of hardware that need connecting to the hub.

I've spent most of this afternoon trying to get my computer to print. I knew the printer was on wifi and finally remembered it needed connecting to the hub...passwords etc.

So in between rebooting the computer, printer and hub God knows how many times I still couldn't get my computer to print a doc.

Run out of vocabulary and got told off several times to no avail.

Then I happened to notice that my computer was connected to next doors hub...FFS!

Nice! Our houses sit on 1--1.5 acre lots so I rarely even see another on my connection unless there are solar flares.

My neighbors all password protect their wifi. When they didn't, I'd set up a password, and then turn on security.

for over a year I had free wifi from some nice neighbour, thought it was a company, so hacked the beejeebus outta it, then one day it's name changed from "linksys 5639" or whatever to "Get your own wifi"
