Actually, it’s not so much the computer as it is the network. I don’t know what the problem is exactly, but there is something going on in this building that interferes with my wireless network. Over Christmas break, when the chiropractor next door was closed, everything worked great, but now that they are back, something is interfering again. Only, it doesn’t get better during the afternoons they are closed, so I’m still not sure it is them. Or their equipment.
Some times it’ll work great, and the rest of the time, not so much.
In a previous life, (before children…), it was my job to figure stuff like this out. Actually, it’s still my job, but at that time, the computer networking stuff was what I got paid for. I do not miss those days. I bet a lot of you didn’t even know that about me. Or don’t know that I have a degree in computer science and used to be a Certified Novell Engineer.
Now, I’m just Certifiable.
And, I’m wishing I could call tech support and say “FIX IT.”
Doh boy – I love computers when all is going well and they do what I want them to do. But when I can’t make them read my mind.. I need chocolate!

Well, could it be that they’re leaving their machines on standby? I can easily see how an Xray machine would kill a wireless’ waves.
Do they have wireless too?

You could try changing the wireless “channel”…
