Great News!! I'm once again connected to the internet. They installed my internet satellite a few minutes ago and I got the wireless router step up so both computers are up and going on the internet!! I decided to take the day off from work to make sure I understood what ever technical info that they wanted to pass along. So now I have the rest of the day to surf.
I'm so very excited to be connected again, I didn't realize how much I was on the computer until I couldn't connect. Of course this means no more excuses for lack of posts. And the best part of the new service is that it's much faster than the old service.......and cheaper!
