Intermitant Internet....Grrrr

For some reason my webconnect stick has been disconnecting for the last few days.
I was patient long enough, so I called today. The first Tech I talked to hung up, I
think, got the 'nobody on the line beep, beep' lol  Well, I was glad really as I couldn't
keep up with him . He talked too fast and my being from the South makes a
Oh I know some of us talk too slow, but you know what we've said.
Ok , I called back and Shaun answered. He was feeling good and he said, 'You're rocking
with Shaun and who am I rocking with?' I told him my name and problem and he got another
Tech on  the line.
Now Leonard was helpful and wasn't in a hurry to get rid of me. He also told me his brother
was coming home Dec.7 from South Korea and he was going to surprize their Mother as he
was not expected until around Christmas, forgot the day.
Well, it seemed that the Stick was behaving and lo and behold, it started cutting out again.
I won't be calling back tonight unless I'm bug eyed and can't sleep. It'll soon be time for my
Brit Coms that I enjoy so much. And the scanner is on so I've got plenty of entertainment.


  1. Oh, I really hate it when the internet is down. I hope your problem gets fixed soon.

  2. Isn't that the way it goes...Hopefully the stick behaves better tomorrow.

  3. It's never simple to deal with that sort of thing is it? I sure hope that things come around soon.

  4. Amazing that happened. I've talked to a number of people in the last week that have been having nothing but problems with one part or another of the internet. Mine was the totally unexpected loss of IE and my webcam among other parts all in a blink (and there was no virus). Another friend just the other day lost IE, etc, and then another today! I'm starting to think it's a conspiracy. The powers that be need to learn how to Southern Speak then no one would get mixed up. A friend of mine told me to turn everything off (the computer) and leave it off for a day or at least completely overnight. I did, and out of the blue it worked again. You might try that. I think there are little men inside that tower just itching to make trouble ;)

  5. I liked the way you described this problem, it is so tipical of these kind of people when you phone with a complaint, they are either rude as hell or over the top polite, and don't forget that all the time they are keeping you talking you are paying for the call, they might sound all friendly like they have known you for years but i bet they would run a mile if you asked them to pay the bill
    But still a lovely story

  6. Mum hates it when the internet packs up especially if she gets a techie who talks fast and as if she know what he's talking about - which if she did she wouldn't have been calling!!
    We hope it works properly for her today.

  7. I go into withdrawal if the Net is not working. I HATE it when that happens.


  8. I needs me Internet!!! Hope yours is more reliable in the future!

  9. I totally agree with you what pain in the neck,
    that why you can't sleep that I can understand too.
    You don't wanted any problems in the this time of years. Jenny D it said the computers need to have rest? hope everything back to work.
    thank you for hopping in my place appreciated it very much.
    Big Hugs,

  10. Our internet connection went off a couple times during the weekend. Just rebooted the modem and router, then it worked again. Seems that is necessary more frequently than I think it should be. I, too, go into internet withdrawal if it's not working...terrible to be so addicted. :-)


Kassey and I thank you all for your kind comments.
