Meanwhile, we still don't have wifi! Frank's PC is hardwired to the internet so right now I am posting from it.
If anyone cares, my troubles started with a new cell phone. Or perhaps before that, when my husband and Comcast (Xfinity) changed our wifi password a couple months ago. Anyway, after a long struggle in getting my cell phone set up (partly due to long delays reaching Consumer Cellular, our carrier which USED to have good customer service), I tried to connect it to our wifi. I needed the password but Frank had not written it down and neither of us could recall it. (I had the former password but not the current one.) We called Comcast (more holding) and they eventually answered and said to change the password online. We did. But the new password does not work. Now none of our wireless devices work! And each time you try and it doesn't work, you have to tell the phone (Android) to "forget" the network, turn the phone off and back on and start over.
After I got back from the library and had dinner, I tried again. Called Consumer Cellular for help, held for almost a half hour, got advice which didn't work, went back into our Xfinity account, changed the password again, tried it on both my phone and Frank's phone but... it still doesn't work!
Sometimes I hate technology and wish I could just live in the mountains like a hermit! But most of my friends are online. I'll try again. Maybe I'll get my daughter to help, except I think she is off camping in the mountains. Sigh!
