Setting Up My Own WiFi at Home - The Unorthodox Way


Share The recent holiday was probably the most productive long weekend I ever had!

A blogger friend (can't mention the name, sorry) gave me a 3G Wireless Broadband Router last Sunday. Sweet, right?! But the big problem is I don't know hot to configure it! I have never done anything like it nor attempted to get close to any router. But since I have a lot of time last Sunday, I played MacGyver.

Wireless Router Power by Sun Broadband - Fierce Blogs
I slowly opened the box like a ticking time bomb. (I saw a note inside saying... Again, sorry I cannot say. Spoiler!). It looks easy, I told myself. As I slowly read through the instructions, the diagram suddenly looked like a 500 pieces of puzzle I need to complete! Why am I even attempting this? What on earth do I know about this!? But I am not quitting!

Slowly, I followed the instruction. "After the IP address set up is complete, please click start", It's okay so far. Then suddenly I heard a loud ticking from my laptop that is very familiar. Then black screen...

I think I just had a double whammy! I failed to set up the Wifi and I just unknowingly killed my laptop! Nervously, I pressed the power button but nothing happened. Sure, I am frustrated but I still want to know what happened. After 10 minutes of trying to be a hero, I dialed a friend.

(Discussion after I gave him he background of the story)

"So, after you press on the power button, do you see any light?" My accommodating friend asked

Me: None (sounding hopeless)

Friend: Not even the power icon?

Me: Yeah (sounding even more desperate)

Friend: Is your laptop charged or plugged right now?

I carefully checked the extension cord where my laptop is plugged...

Me: It's noooot! Thank you and bye bye!

I didn't even give him the opportunity to laugh at me. Well, not when I can hear it, at least!

After 1 hour, I successfully set up my WiFi at home. I am so proud of myself!

And did I say that the router is personalized? Sweeeet! It has Fierce Blogs written on the router.

Thanks to my special blogger friend!

Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic

but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
this website? I'm getting sick and tired of

Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I

would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I have been browsing on-line more than three hours

today, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
It is lovely worth enough for me. In my view,
if all site owners and bloggers made

good content material as you did, the internet might

be a lot more useful than ever before.
