I have entered just that little bit farther into the 21st century: I now have wireless in my apartment. Of course, this is because I actually have things that USE it. Like Nintendo DSi. And my son's lap top. Stuff like that.
well, it worked when I first plugged it in here at my apartment last night. As of this morning... intermittant at best, non-existant most of the time.
I have power cycled it several times (some 30 second pauses, some 60. with the other comps plugged in and without. Nothing seems to make a difference.)
Ugh. Maybe I should get a new one and see what happens. But I don't know how my father changed it from it's factor settings to what it is now (has it's own IP address and changed from WPA with a set password to WEP with a password of my own making)
