For the past few weeks I have been experiencing internet problems. My cable connection has begun to move at the speed of molasses in January.
We had a Time Warner Cable guy at our house for another reason who proclaimed that the problem was that we have a "splitter" on our cable, since we have a TV and a computer in the same room. I doubted this was really the case, since it has been that way for three years and has always worked just fine. So we tried disconnecting the television cable. Still our internet activity is like a snail.
A friend said it could be our computer, so I took the box to a computer expert for a diagnostic. $150 later, the computer had some other issues corrected and new anti-virus software, but the internet is not working any better (it worked great at the computer repair shop).
I am frustrated. We have invited the cable company to come back for another look. Ten years ago I did not have internet access....now I require it....and I require it to be at the speed of light.
Any ideas? I find the readers of this blog always have the answers to problems that I cannot solve alone. This is another perfect example of how having a network enhances ones abilities to overcome obstacles.
Have A Great Day.
