After finally pulling the trigger(like 6 weeks ago!) on buying a new router, our wireless in the house finally got bad enough(could not go more than half-an-hour without timing out of whatever I was trying to do)...and it was really starting to peeve off my wife as she indulged her love of British Television series. With football season approaching, I finally took the new router out of its box, and swapped it out.
What an amazing difference. For a while, my computer had been turning into such a dog, I was worried the problem might be the computer, and not the Wi-Fi.
I shouldn't have been worried. It's like a whole new world with the new router...24 straight hours of internet connection!
