So, in addition to not whining myself when I discovered we had a big internet problem, I had to be mature and parental when confronted with a teenage daughter who WAS NOT HAPPY about the internet problems. (The internet problem required her to use a lot more data on her phone and her speed was throttled back!!!!) Interestingly, your son doesn't care--he just uses the internet at his girlfriend's apartment - problem solved. Sigh. Anyway, when you discover the problem is, in fact, at your end and NOT at the CenturyLink end, it becomes an annoying problem which YOU have to solve.

|The cellophane is off and, if you look carefully, you can see my cell phone in the background off to the right and you can see there is an active call on the screen. This was the part where Superman was starting to tell me what to do.|
|Apparently this lovely router will have four channels (upgrading from our current three) and will solve the bandwidth hog problems we'd been having before we had the "real" internet problem.|
