Hey lappy you so fine
you so fine you make my hand cramp!
Okay, so when the PC died this is what happened. I plugged the Mac into the wall. I plugged the Mac into the cable modem. I turned everything on. (And i mean everything, blenders, lamps, oscillating fans, etc) And boom. I was on the internet. Not so easy with lappy.
Plug in modem, install modem driver, install ISP software, reboot modem, reboot lappy, reinstall modem driver, reinstall modem driver, reboot, self heal. Online. Server not found. Reinstall ISP software, reboot modem, reboot lappy, self heal some more, online!
I think i skimmed over a few steps and left some out. At least it was better than trying to get online with Bell Sympatico. ;-)
