Lightening strike took out my modem on Wednesday. Internet company is sending me a new one...but it is still not here! Ugh. Hate typing on my phone.
Also--online classes a little tough to work on right now. Had to get a babysitter the past three days so I can go to a wifi spot.
Really, really need this modem to show up tomorrow!

Modem mojo on it's way....

Hugs too.

If I had patience, I would send that too. But I don't. Sorry.

More hugs,

Do you have an Android phone? If so, download Foxfi from the market and tether from your phone for the time being.

tesla posted 6/28/2013 20:55 PM

I have an iPhone, don't suppose there is a tether app for that?

h0peless posted 6/28/2013 22:25 PM

Not unless you're Jailbroken. :-(

ETA: Scratch that. Here is an app that apparently works. Costs $2.00 though.:

And instructions on how to unlock the hidden tethering feature:

There are tutorials on the top to connect to various devices. It looks a lot more complicated than doing it on Android and I've never personally used to to verify that it actually works but it might be worth a shot.

And apparently the above app doesn't work unless you set the language to French.

Well, dammit, I don't speak French.

According to the tracking number, it's in the area but not out for delivery. Guess they aren't delivering on I guess I'll get it on Monday.

I guess the winner in this is my babysitter:)

Ugh, sorry. Not having internet stinks. I've had crappy service as long as I've been in this apartment - Verizon would go out for days at a time and when I called to complain was told that there was no problem and my router appeared to have full signal (I tested this by once actually unplugging it before I called them...and got the same b.s. response). I've been using Clear for about 8months without a problem and then suddenly last week it went out and now won't work anymore. So frustrating.

My upstairs neighbor told me to just use their Comcast though, when I was asking around to see which service might actually work in the neighborhood. Wish you had a neighbor to mooch off too.

Ps if they told you it would get to you earlier than it does, I would definitely call and complain, and ask for a refund or credit on your bill!

Yeah, finally got it yesterday afternoon!
And now all caught up with discussion posting for my class.

Glad you're caught up.
