YAY!! I'm wireless!!

Whew! So I've had a laptop for a couple of weeks now. We waited for KB (our sucky builder) to come and set up the structural wiring network for our computers. They came- handed me a router and told me to call the Geek Squad to do it. Well, I'm cheap- and ticked- they told me that as part of the service that they'd set it up! But I'm also so frustrated with KB that I gave up. I finally just decided to try and set up our wireless router and get our network working that way. After spending hours on the phone today with Linksys they told me to try calling Sprint- my ISP. Ten minutes with Sprint and the problem was fixed. That got the Desktop going through the router to connect with the internet- but then the laptop would connect (according to the system) but IE wouldn't work. Sigh...

BUT- I'm not sure what I've done- but now it's working!! Finally! So now I can be wireless! YAY!

We just got a laptop too last week (you know, a necessity with husband going back to school) :) It is fun to have! Especially if I want to check email and he is doing something else. Good job on figuring it out yourself and BOO on KB!
