In the past few weeks, Comcast Xfinity has been out to our house twice as we once again play with the poor Internet coverage. You would think that we live in a very large home, as some areas of it are just less than desirable in terms of service. We have even gotten to the point of having Wi-Fi extenders, now having XFi pods from Comcast. I think that they call it a ‘mesh’ system. They actually seem to be working.
Each Comcast guy seems to have his forte. The recent one, a tall, nerdy looking guy, was wonderful. He came up to me and asked if we had some sort of connection or device going into one of the bedrooms. I couldn’t remember anything but he showed me that there was a coaxial cable going into the room (from the outside).
I honestly couldn’t recall anything. It was only way after the fact that I remembered that originally we had our router in the office upstairs and perhaps that’s what it was.
He kept complaining of a buzzing of interference that he was detecting. He finally ended up disconnecting the cable outside. Now I realize that this probably goes way back to the Wi-Fi we had with AT&T.
To make a long story short, the changes worked and I was in the far depths of our very long garage with my laptop and realized that I still had our Wi-Fi coverage. Of late, even getting any service on the patio was a big deal, so this was amazing.
My blog, which normally takes a long time to load up, now loads up with no time lag.
Let’s see if this lasts…
