Just a short note to
let those who tried to reach me know that I am back online. The problem was a
"Feeder Cable" and with the drizzle in the desert, Verizon was inundated with
repair requests on regular phone lines resulting in a week of waiting to get
connected to my DSL. In the mean time, the swore up and down that the problem
was my wireless router and I went out to buy a new one. Finally they admitted
that the problem was on their end.
Fortunately, I like
the new router which is the D-Link 614+ Enhanced 2.5 GHz Wireless Router -
a much easier router to set up than the Orinoco I was using for the last 18
months. (and it is one of the flat models that does not fall over). The
price was great IF you can find the $10.00 coupons at Best Buy. My wife picked
up the router which was $149.00 after rebate and actually paid less than $80.00
for it using coupons at Best Buy.
So if you are
looking for DSL I advise you stay away from Verizon (you get what you pay for)
and if you need a great wireless router, I highly recommend the D-Link
BTW, Thanks to those
like Steve Gordin who called me to see it I was still alive and kicking - I
appreciate the concern a great deal.
