It's good to hear your voice, you know it's been so long...

My internet connection recently has been incredibly shoddy. I use a wireless router, so both my laptop and desktop are wirelessly connected. I've never had a problem until recently. The connection drops every few minutes or so, making it impossible to stay signed on to AIM, and difficult to do research on the internet, as I usually end up with a "cannot connect to server" error. Even getting and sending emails must be done during the alloted time my internet decides to work.

I don't really understand what the problem is. My wireless connection is password protected, so no one is mooching or tampering with it. I even reset the whole thing and created a new password (because apparently I'm paranoid). I'm about this|close to buying a 25' ethernet cable from Best Buy (because, of course, my desk and the ethernet port are on opposite sides of my room).

This is just frustrating. The internet is no longer a's a way of life. And my life is being disrupted.

[EDIT: Seriously...for the past four days, my internet has sucked. Less than a half hour after I posted this, it miraculously has improved 17 times over. I signed on AIM and have been on for over 3 hours. Crazy go nuts.]
