You know, I don’t want to sound like a demanding princess, but something has to be done by someone about the quality of my household wireless services.
Last night I thought, for a change of pace, perhaps I should pack up my laptop and sit in the library while I do my online shopping.
You see, usually I sit in the south wing of the house, in the art room. But the art room has very large windows and I get a bit of glare on my laptop’s screen that interferes with my ability to peruse the dress selection at Saks Fifth Avenue’s online site.
On the north end of the house, in the library, there is only the one set of patio doors and the patio is superbly shaded. There would be no glare and (I thought) all my problems would be solved.
So I moved, and I sat and sat waiting for the image of a Jill Stuart dress to appear. But it never happened and I was left sitting in a lonely library recliner with unrequited dress dreams, credit card in hand without a dress to pay for. No internet. No Jill Stuart. By the time I packed up and moved all the way back to the other side of the house the dress had sold out.
Apparently the north end of the house is still a dead zone. The boys tell me that is because the router is in the south wing of the house in the media room, and that since there are 4 walls and a floor between that media room router and my library, the wireless does not have the strength to retrieve images.
I had the cable fellows out to fix this months ago, and they just asked me a whole bunch of confusing questions (what kind of modem do you have, where is the router, how do you turn this on?).
Now what was I supposed to do? Just trust Saks and buy any old size two dress I could find? How am I supposed to keep my wardrobe up to date?
This is a serious problem.
If I didn’t work walking distance from Holt Renfrew this could be a real impediment to maintaining my social status.
