  • Asus Wifi Router AiMesh Odyssey

    This post was rattling around in my head before the current stay-at-home situation arose. Somehow, it never found its way to my fingers, until now. This will be a typical techie post by me, in that it will be long, rambling/meandering, and likely bore the people who used to mostly read my music […]

  • Happy New Year

    For the past six years (2002-2007) we’ve spent New Year’s Eve in Richmond, VA. There are four couples there who get together each year and cook a very special (and sumptuous) dinner at each others houses (rotates each year), and we hitched our wagon to their tradition back in 2002. Of course, we […]

  • Cable Woes Resolved

    On December 13th I wrote about my long-standing cable Internet woes. At the end of that note, I mentioned that I would update everyone if my solution worked. Today is the first day that we are back in the apartment, and I can now report that we’ve had zero drops in the past […]

  • Cable Internet Woes

    A long time ago (I can’t remember when), we had a stable, reliable connection in the apartment (provided by Time Warner Cable). It was never super fast on the download (when it was stable, it was roughly 3Mpbs downstream). It was always pokey on the upstream (used to be roughly 360Kpbs). Now, it’s […]

  • Internet Connection Sharing

    Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) has been around for a long time (formally, and through hack-like methods). I have never had a need for it (slightly amazing) until now. Yesterday I wrote about our current hotel WiFi woes. In that post, I wrote that I wouldn’t need to worry about it today, given that […]

  • Hotel WiFi

    This post is inspired by my current hotel WiFi woes. I’ve likely mentioned this gripe before, but since I’m living it at the moment, I’ll repeat it, vigorously. It’s insane that high-end hotels charge for Internet use (WiFi or wired), while their low-end chains (owned by the same company!) give it away for […]

  • Internet Connectivity Update

    In this post, I discussed my emergency backup system for when my house or apartment Internet connectivity goes down. In that report, I mentioned that my WiFi connection in the apartment was getting reasonably flaky. We’re in the apartment all week this week, so I was bracing for the experience. As I mentioned […]

  • Internet Connectivity Insurance

    In the house, we have Verizon FiOS service (triple play, Phone, Internet, TV). In the apartment, we have Time Warner Cable (Internet and TV). Both services are very reliable (in terms of availability). Beyond that, Verizon FiOS is so dramatically better, I keep praying for when they’ll figure out how to deploy it […]
