Man is working on several solutions to the “slow as a tortoise” internet, we spent several hours yesterday in El Paso Texas (about 35 miles south of here) at the Sprint store. The short version of the hours spent, Man wanted them to make some updates to the card which we could not do because, mmm, we don't have a PCMCIA card slot on either of the computers.
(I went looking for a graphic/photo of a PCMCIA card to share with you, and found out that stood for Personal Computer Memory Card International Association - - who knew?? I'll bet Man knew, LOL)
A phone call to another tech office, somewhere, they re-activated the entire card, the updates were attempted another time or two, and now, it works, again/still, sighhh. Is it any faster? Well, last night it was not.
Man has also investigating some new month to month options with Verizon. He is waiting for a new air card to arrive, hopefully this week. My, my, we are about to be a 2 air card family, maybe. First we need to get the new V card and see if it works, or how it works. Man is fairly confident it will be fine. Then, we need to decide just what we will do about the S card.
Don’t cha just LOVE technology??
The saga continues, Carol cannot be without her internet, no she cannot!
