One of the errands last week was to go to the internet company and ask about better wifi. The long and short of it is, we have a new router. It’s supposed to give us better range. The technician moved it to the living room and I’m able to get 2 bars wifi in my room. It also means there’s wifi in the living and dining rooms.

Unfortunately he disconnected the cable for the tv and I don’t have a LAN cable long enough. The whole setup is now back on my desk so we can watch tv. I’ll have to go get a longer cable then start again with everything outside.

Our building is old and the infrastructure simply isn’t there to get better internet. The cables from the street are limited and there are no spare outlets to use the home wiring system. The 8Mbps speed is the max we can get; speedtest pings give me 6Mbps. We can’t even opt for HD channels because it’ll take up too much bandwidth. Sigh.
