Last night he was on the phone with customer service for a long time freaking plugging and unplugging every damn cord that hooks up to any of our computers as he was instructed to do. Of course Verizon was sure it was our computers' issue. Anyhow, finally, the decision was made that the router was bad and they were sending out a new one.
Great that they are sending out a new router, but I have Ebay auctions going on, and ending, that I need to monitor, and being off line has drove me nuts.
I have NO
I knew we had a "new in the box" Verizon router in the house (somewhere), and I went on a six hour hunt to find it. I purged bags of clothes, junk, holiday decorations and other crap while on my hunt. Hubby took two suv loads of stuff down to the local thrift store.

I literally ripped every room apart, tossed what I did not use anymore, and still could not find that freakin router. I know where I thought I had last seen it, but alas, it was absolutely no where to be found. After I tore apart the attic looking for the stupid ass thing, and still came up empty handed, Hubby went to BEST BUY to get a new one.
We quickly hooked up the new router, and it would not connect so we had to call Verizon again. I was first reprimanded for going out and buying a router as they TOLD US that they would have one to us within 2 days. Soooooooooooo Sorry Verizon, I need my internet.
The customer service person worked with me for 90 minutes only to say that the new router was not good enough to work with VERIZON. Ok, uhmm this thing was top of the line at BEST BUY, and again, it is not VERIZON's fault.
The exasperated technician said I would just have to wait for the delivery of their router next week. With that comment, I was mad and slammed aside a disk holder on the computer desk, and what to my wondering eyes did appear but, THE new boxed WESTELL VERIZON router. The flipping router I was looking for ALL day was appropriately nestled neatly in the computer desk.
I quietly gasped, & Hubby saw what I saw. I told the Tech I just happened to find ANOTHER router and would he kindly help us set it up. Three hours after I made the call, WE are up and running again.
I can't believe I spent the whole day looking for something that was were it should have been in the first place.
I drive myself nuts and spend half my waking hours always looking for something. Usually it is keys or the remote control.
I also am alarmed that I could get so much purging and decluttering done when I have no internet (thus off the freaking computer )
A clean house is probably a
house with a broken computerAlthough I spent my whole day ripping apart, I got so so so much done. Tomorrow I am going to finish up and complete my holiday decorating.
I am exausted!
