Stuck On Dial Up
Boy, what a pain. Got up this morning and couldn't go online with DSL. Tried everything I could think of but no luck. That little green light in the number 4 slot of the DSL modem isn't on so it just doesn't seem to be working.
So, in desparation, I pulled my extra phone line out of my laptop bag and connected the dial up modem to the phone jack. That got me connected. That's one good thing about AT&T internet: If DSL fails you, you always have the option of using standard dial up, and free dial up numbers are provided throughout the state.
I've been on the computer for almost two and a half hours now and haven't come close to getting the stuff I'd normally have done by this time. I can't believe how slow dial up seems. It seemed faster than this last time I used it. Then again, I have to remember the dial up modem I'm using was given to me- One of those things someone had just laying around. It's never really been up to speed, pardon the pun.
I've had more problems connecting since I went to DSL than I ever did with good old Humboldt Internet dial- up. In fairness to AT&T, outages like this don't happen all that often- maybe once or twice a year.
Anyone else with DSL having problems connecting this morning? I hope it's not just me.
