Default Re: Bad Internet Connection

Hey, I solved the problem! I took an empty can of Arnold Palmer (my favorite) and I stuck the hole on top of the dongle, now I get a perfect connection. It looks a little red neck, but Hey Jack, if it works, it works

You got to love those days when you jerry rig something and it works perfectly. Some times you just have to do what you gotta do to get the job done.

I've heard good things about powerline adapters, though I have no experience with them.

I'm thinking about getting a set for my house too to go into my basement where the wifi isn't that good as well.
I should get one too as the wifi in the room downstairs isn't good..
