|I'M TOTALLY FUCKING BACK ONLINE!|
I'M SO HAPPY, I COULD JUST SAY THE WORD 'FUCK' ALL DAY!!
Admittedly, I have had issues getting online.
Two weeks ago (about a week after my old internet was officially cancelled), I phoned up AOL after getting their number off a work colleague of mine.
I phone them up. I phoned Mum up to tell them about the packages they offered. Then I phoned AOL back up to accept a package.
Last Wednesday, my router and easy-install pack came through. I was VERY happy. But confused, because I didn't have the right user ID and password to set it up (booooo).
So, on Saturday, another letter (one of A LOT) came from AOL, containing my network user ID and network password. I ate it.
Well, no, that last bit was a lie. I tried to install the router, aaaaaaand, it didn't work. So, I tried again yesterday, aaaaaaaand, it didn't work.
So, I tried again earlier, aaaaaaaaand, it didn't work.
You can probably tell how FRUSTRATED I was getting, lmao.
So, I just phoned up AOL, spoke (well, listened) to a lot of automated messages, got bored as they weren't helping me anyway, so I pressed zero to speak to a real person, and at first I couldn't understand a word he was saying. Oddly, he wasn't Irish, either (the AOL centre over here in in Ireland).
So, I explained my problem to him (that when I entered my network ID and password, it tried to connect to AOL, and it wouldn't work), and he talked me through how to connect to the internet manually.
Hang on, I'm getting confused... Lemme think for a minute.
... I'm done. So, my internet light came on on my shiny new router, and I was happy! He told me to open internet explorer, and I happily did so. Do you know what it came up with? MY HOTMAIL INBOX! YAAAAAY!
So, I had internet! But, that was with the yellow ethernet cable attached to my laptop. The nice AOL man asked if I was hoping to go wireless, too. I said yes.
So, he talked me through it all. We went to my router's website, we connected, I have a password, we went back to my desktop, we connected, I entered my password...
AND THEN MY WIRELESS LIGHT IS ON (on the router) AND MY LITTLE INTERNET SIGN IN THE BOTTOM CORNER OF MY SCREEN COMES ON! YAAAAAY!
So, then we ended our call... I still don't actually have AOL installed on my laptop, but he said it should work now when I use the CD, or I can get it off their website.
I don't care if AOL isn't installed on the laptop. I HAVE INTERWEBS! YAY!
I have to go now, though. We're having our kitchen completely done over, and the men have just turned back up. One of them is a Spongebob fan.
I shall post tomorrow. Many times. Well, no. Just the once XD
I'm happy =D
