I’ve been baby-ing my router along for some time now. I believe it is about five years old. And it gets a lot of use. So I think it’s probably had a good life in router years. This morning though, I could get no internet to work. I checked my ISP’s maps and there were no network outages. I figured it must have been the end of my router.
While I was out today I did find a new router – on sale for $50 off! I came home, plugged it in, and nothing. No internet. I tried a few different things. Still nothing.
After an hour on the phone with tech support, it was determined that the problem is with the ISP’s equipment in my house . . . which is also about 5 years old. *sigh*
With work still be done this evening, I am thankful for a mobile hotspot on my phone to provide internet when my regular way doesn’t work. I am thankful for a new router, which will great once everything is fixed. And I am thankful for getting things fixed tomorrow, so that the service will be great once again!
