Yeap. I've dealt with them before, because my mom is a total technophobe. Pretty much every day I get WHY ISNT FACEBOOK WORKING WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY COMPUTER COME HERE AND FIX IT

And I'm like *flicks wifi switch*

But yeah their customer service is shit. I had an argument with one once because there was some kind of glitch that wrecked our connection (three days without internet, I was ready to /wrist) and the guy on the end of the phone (Indian called Michael, lol WHY ARE THEY ALWAYS INDIAN WHY CAN'T I TALK TO SOMEONE ENGLISH) told me to use an ethernet cable. I'm like "well there's more than one machine to connect" and I got fobbed off with a load of bullshit about how ethernet is the best way to connect.

I'm like YES I KNOW BUT I'M PAYING YOUR SORRY ASS FOR WIRELESS INTERNET SO I EXPECT WIRELESS GODDAMN INTERNET

IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PROVIDE THE SERVICE I'M PAYING YOU FOR I'LL JUST HALT THE PAYMENTS

He's like "is ok we fix soon"

Honestly, I'd just get a good hard line connection and buy your own cisco or netgear router.

I have this problem a lot. I actually get the "Sir, I can't understand you." more than I have to tell them that.
Also the stupid steps they make you do, even if you told them you've already done it.

Yeah, it's very irritating.

When I cancelled AOL I had to argue with one of them over it.

I think his name was "Rick" lol.

He actually got an attitude with me.

I think he cussed at me but I couldn't tell he was talking too fast.

Also, fobbed is an awesome word.
<.<

I keep telling 'em we should just buy our own router but noooooooo it's too much trouble they says

Best one of those steps I've been told to do before was to take my computer apart o_O Had a laptop that completely died off. The fan stopped working and the motherboard melted. Used a different computer to email the company (Hewlett-Packard) and the response from one of their technicians was that the hard drive "may have gone bad" and that I should try taking it apart and putting it back together.

I'm like "Won't that void my warranty?"

They're like "Yes."

I'm like NOEP.

It takes me longer to get the thing out of the package than to set one up. >.>

I had a dead pixel in one of my monitors and the guy told me to turn it off and see if it was still there.
Years back I had an HP computer that the fan on the video card was going out and making a horrible noise, it took me 4 tiers of tech support to get someone that could understand that computer fans, in fact, could go bad and I wasn't just imagining it.

Kinda like my old Acer. Again, the fan went shitty so I contacted them to get a quote for fixing it since at the time I couldn't find my warranty. Their quote was £650.

The laptop itself cost £399.

Ha, it was actually an acer monitor. They wanted me to pay shipping both ways, on a 27" screen. It's absurd what they try to get people to do for a warranty.

I just took it back to the store I bought it at lol. Luckily I had a credit card statement that showed when I bought it, which they accepted in lieu of the actual warranty card.

here's my home connection. To anyone getting under 2MB/s on a cable line, you should post your modem's line strength. Under 2 meg a second download is unacceptable.

Point a browser to 192.168.100.1, there might be a status/signal pane, that's what you want.

(cover your MAC address)

For whatever reason mine will only show me receive/Transmit levels, but we're also looking for SNR (signal to noise ratio) and whatever else it'll put out there.
