Internet Issues

pcwOur internet has always been a bit contrary, but since last fall it’s gradually gotten absolutely nerve-wracking. It takes hours of trying for me to blog. It’s so frustrating.

4 pc’s, 2 cell phones and my kindlefire suffers the malediction of getting kicked off line and extra slow loading… Error Error Error… ~stomps foot~m0367I’ve done everything I know to do: power cycled many times, ran diagnostics, tested for viruses, uninstalled every program I had put on the pc’s like photo programs & files, personal files and the like, changed cords, changed routers and even said several unladylike words… Yep, I’ve surfed and learned and tried many fixes, everything short of calling our internet service. That was next on my battle plan.

My husband suggested that perhaps we need a new modem. I think he may be on to something with that thought. We’ve had this modem a few years and nothing that’s tech based seems to last very long now-a-days.
Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to go get a new modem yet. There’s too much going on.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to get a new modem soon and it’ll be what we need and I can dive back into enjoying my blogging and internet nonsense again. (If not then I guess I’ll have to get a techie out here to resolve the issues.)

So, if I’m slow about getting to your blogs or replying to your comments, know that my contrary old modem is limiting my surfing experience.

Here’s wishing ya’ll a pleasant week of trouble-free surfing.

  1. Bet you want to throw your pc out the window! I was in the same situation as you a few years ago and we tried everything. In the end we bought a new modem and guess what? No more problems. Might be the way to go for you.

      I believe I’d feel oodles better if I could do just that, or drop kick off the porch. lol
      It’s amazing how such a small device can mess up your day when it isn’t running right.
      But all-in-all the pc is worth the aggravating sporadic issues. 🙂

      Honestly, sometimes I think if I could afford to throw my pc out the window, I’d feel so much better. lol 🙂


  2. Contrary technology takes the fun out of blogging rather quickly. I hope a new modem solves your issues so you can blog in less time, more often!

      I made the stomping granny as a card for my ex ecard shop many many years… I also made an old grandpa one too. 🙂


    • Hi Charlotte
      Even with DSL connection, Our internet is slower than city because fast speeds aren’t available in my area yet.
      I understand your posting issues. Blog when you can. It’s always a pleasure to read your post and see your lovely photos. 🙂
