High speed internet amazes me. This is so cool! I think I’m going to like this.
Last night, I figured I’d set everything up and see if the account was activated yet. In the process, I discovered that my ethernet card wasn’t working. Stephen had mentioned the other day that he thought it might have gone bad, so it gave me a place to start looking when things didn’t work with setup last night. Before I assumed it was my computer, I set things up on Stephen’s computer to see if things were really connected right. They were.
When Stephen got home this morning, I mentioned the ethernet card to him. Much to my suprise, he told me that we actually had an extra laying around. I was thrilled. We have a ton of spare computer parts laying around the house – a product of helping fix other computers and being given things. . .a bit of extra clutter at times. . .but it pays off to have the parts.
Stephen was so tired that he told me I could install the new card myself. So. . .I gingerly opened up my computer and went to work. I did it all by myself. :thumbup_tb: What an exciting feeling. . . :jittery_tb: now I know why Stephen likes to tinker with computers so much. I think he has a new helper, lol!
So now I have my always-on-never-miss-another-phone-call connection. I am very thankful for it!
Next task: figure out how to install the internet through our computer network. Now that I have a working network card, maybe we can get our network set back up. That would be cool!
