|||||How Can I Keep From Singing - John McCutcheon||]|
Know what I'm doing? I'm updating from my bedroom. Because with the Mattses having a bum leg we decided to go ahead and rig up a connection to the cable internet hub in the computer room. 'Cept, whoops, all available ports already taken. Then I realize that the hub has little antennae on it.
Hmmm.. thinks I.. hmm.. wireless? So we head for the nearest CompSuperUSAOfficeWarehouse store and buy a wireless ethernet card of the same brand as the hub (after doing serious geek duty on the company website.
I was all worried about making sure we had the right SSID and all kinds of other stuff so I settle in the computer room with my laptop to make sure that I'm nearby the main computer to check stuff during the install. I slip in the ethernet card, I stick in the CD to install the drivers. After the drivers finish installing I see a dialogue box saying "Software for new network adaptor has been installed." Ah, good, I thinks, now I can proceed with configuration.
Then, like a beacon to lost ships, a little box pops up from my menu bar. "On or more wireless networks is available. Click here to see list." Umm.. yeah. Connected. Total time, 45 seconds.
And it works upstairs in this over engineered Victorian monstrosity of a house. I am so tickled I'm about to kiss someone... must go find Mattses.
Also, Howard made me stuffed shells for dinner. Who says the Brits can't cook?
