Going wireless @home

    I guess we're late adopters, but when my wife wanted a new computer this fall I suggested she get a laptop ... and then get the house – which is on Comcast broadband – set up for wireless.

    We had a local vendor handle the install for us, just for convenience. My wife is tickled with the results, especially the fact she can print to our desktop printer from her new laptop. I'm tickled mainly because she's tickled - and now, there's no waiting to use the computer.

    I realize we're several years behind the curve, probably, compared to all you crazy kids with your Googles and everything.

    I just went wireless at home like a month ago. I like it OK, lets me use my Mac on my couch instead of being tethered to the wall with my desktop halfway back in my apartment. But I can't get my Tivo to use the wireless. :(

    This guy wants to know where you put the tubes to be filled if you have wireless

    I went wireless about 2 1/2 months ago. It mostly means that I can sit on my ass in front of the TV while IMing my buddies. Not sure it's the best thing in the world, for that reason.

    Is it still $80 a month? That's the only reason I don't have it. My dream is to IM someone while pooping.

    Wireless should cost no more than standard DSL or Cable internet. The only extra expense would be a wireless modem and router. Probably about $50 at Radio Shack.

    You get used to it pretty quickly.

    So for the technical 'tards like me, we can do it ourselves with no input from the DSL company?

    Just don't eat it!

    Indeed. I certainly don't want the dysentery.

    Better hurry. Sportschick is eagerly awaiting a report on your bowel movement.
