To complement the POS network currently running through my apartment complex, my wireless router decided to die last night. That’s right, it simply stopped advertising its signal. I was browsing around and then my signal suddenly dropped to ZERO. After trying everything I could I sucked it up and called D-Link. It was a very short call.
I told the tech that I had no signal and that the WLAN light on the router was off and he said, quite matter-of-factly, It’s broken. He also told me that they would send me a new one without much hassle. Of course the office he pointed me to was closed and won’t be open again until Monday. Either way, I’m assuming they will be sending me a new one next week. In the meantime, I’m running a 25-ft Cat-5 cable from my ex-roommates room (it’s closer than mine) to my notebook in the living room.
