Rants *enter at own risk*


Recommended Posts

The story of getting Wifi working on my laptop has been ongoing since I got it last October. Despite much trial & effort following various guides that had comments from people with the same OS (Ubuntu) and make and model of Wifi card (Atheros ar242x) saying this worked for them it never seemed to work for me. I can connect to the internet on my laptop, through an ethernet cable that runs downstairs to the router, which is obviously not an ideal situation.

I tried getting a belkin wireless adaptor I found lying around the house to work, it didn't. I tried using the Sitecom Wifi adaptor that my PC uses to connect to the internet, it managed to pick up a signal (better than anything else thus far) but couln't connect to the network.

A couple of weeks ago I actually decided to spend money on a USB wifi adaptor, a Tenda W322U wireless N compatible card, this when plugged in to a USB port managed to connect to the network and I was able to browse the network - very slowly and still no internet access. The next day I tried plugging in the adaptor before the OS had started up, now it doesn't work at all.....

It's only been 9 or so months without any success, I think I'm allowed a little rant :P

Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

Lack of space on my iPod is slowing down the rate of my new music purchases. Damn you, limitations of non-quantum computing! *shakes fist*

.:EDIT:.

And, damn you, book publishers for not being philanthropic and giving away your books for free. Or very little. Or, indeed, a reasonable amount.

Sorry, another rant... :evil:

Rant: I was just listening to the radio on last.fm and one of the plugins needed to be updated. So, I updated just to see that now I CANNOT LISTEN TO LAST.FM on Songbird ANYMORE because I need a subscription! Wow...

You have learned a valuable lesson: Never update something that is working.
