I have no Wi-Fi complaints about where we are tied up now. Even without an amp, our laptops are picking up several open signals, which is appreciated. Ironically, I do have a functioning Wi-Fi amp though, having borrowed our friend Kirk’s Alfa unit to test it out. Because he didn’t have the installation disk with him on his boat, we had to download the proper drivers to run it on our Mac. That took a tiny bit of effort to find them online but now having done so, everything is working great. At this point I would say that the Alfa is working better for me than our N3 ever did. The connections are fast to make and even after closing and reopening the computer, the signals are still available.
So, what have I been doing with this nice internet connection?
- Ordered my own Alfa unit from Amazon, along with a book Kirk recommended, Seasoned by Salt
- Paid our credit card bills. Groan!
- Uploaded a Bazillion photos to our Facebook Page
It was also recommended that we swap the banner images on this blog, getting rid of the placeholder images that I had there previously. I think it was a good suggestion. Thanks Donna. 🙂
Hopefully it stops raining today so we can get out and enjoy the city a bit more!
