Dialup

Mon, 2006-01-16 21:16

It was a day off without the 'Net. I had been having some problems with dialup but today it went away and refused to come back. I called support after trying a few times on two computers. The first tech I talked to told me my modem drivers were outdated. I mentioned that Ubuntu is only four months old and has all the latest everything but he was not impressed, even after I told him it was a form of Linux, ya know, not Windows? The second told me to remove one of my Internet protocols, and the third gave me an alternate number to dial that did not work at all. I called the tech here in town and followed his suggestion to call the phone company; they were aware of the problem and were already working on it. I was able to dial up again early in the evening.
