Where do I begin?
With the new printer?
The old wifi box?
I had to haul it out of the "take it to the eco-centre" box to take a picture for you!
Let's just say I had to purchase on-line support to reconfigure our encrypted wifi after trying to set the wifi for our new printer de-encrypted it. There. That didn't take too long to explain.
Along with my on-line support came the offer of a $15.00 rebate for a new wifi box if I could not fix my problem after purchasing their technical support.
In a sense, they fixed our problem, I had encrypted wifi again. But, in another, the problem wasn't fixed as it wasn't stable. (It still isn't completely 100% trouble free, but I think it's the modem that's at fault, now.) On a subsequent call, the technician suggested I was entitled to my rebate and sent me an e-mail saying so.
So, we bought a new wifi box. A sleek pretty little black thing I can hide out of sight on my pull-out shelf.
Wifi on the left, modem on the right.
However, to claim my rebate, I had to fax a copy of my receipt along with a copy of that e-mail which said I was entitled to it.
Our fax machine is in the basement.
Aside-- (Ok, so technically, I can use the new printer as a fax machine--but I would have to figure out the phone cord thing all over again. And then learn how to send a fax. Believe me, using the old fax machine would be quicker! I did make the copies on my new printer, though.)
Yes, the basement.
Fortunately, when I finally decided to send the fax, things had settled down somewhat.
Less than ten minutes later, we were ready to plug in the power and the phone cords
We don't have cable, so everything goes through our phone lines.
and send the fax.
Bonus: The place where we keep the machine is now all nice and tidy.
It was immensely satisfying and the money won't hurt either!
The basement wall where the shelves used to be looks like this now:
and everything is just out of the above frame to the left!
