oh grr...

Why must it be so dang complicated to get my router to accept my new ISP? Or is it getting my ISP to accept my router? I don't know!

On Saturday my wireless worked just fine, but knocked me offline a few times. On Sunday it worked just fine as well. But by Sunday night it suddenly stopped working. Monday came and the wireless didn't pick up at all, in spite of the fact that the router claims it is giving and receiving a full signal. And my computer claims it is receiving a full signal. I'm just somehow not getting online.

So I called the ISP. A few minutes with them online and they reset some antenna and say good luck. Nothing happens. They tell me to call Netgear. Two hours online with Netgear later and we've reset every stupid setting possible I think! And yet, we hang up with the instructions for me to call the ISP and have them disconnect the DCHP from the modem. But of course the ISP is closed.

So tonight I called the ISP and gave them the verbatim instructions from Netgear. They have no idea what I'm talking about. But they give me all the settings so I can call Netgear
