I finally have stable internet again!
This is not because the router arrived today. This is because the router did not arrive today, and so Geth called BT, and so we found out that the router that they promised us had been sent out Monday had never actually been sent and so they had to resend it today, and so Geth got fed up and ordered a same-day-delivery emergency router from Argos…and then when it arrived at nine o’clock this evening, he couldn’t get it to work, possibly because BT have proprietary stuff going on that won’t allow you to use other routers with their network provision. However, Geth ended up disconnecting and reconnecting so many cables that the old broken router decided to start working again. Go figure.
During yet another day without internet, I managed to get another 5,400 words written, meaning that I now have everything put together for a writing competition I’m submitting to in the morning!
By tomorrow lunchtime, we should have three routers. I am hopeful that between them, we will be able to set ourselves up with long-term reliable internet again.
