    Thanks so much David. It's been back up for awhile now so not sure if fixed for sure because it's been off and on all day.

    Hopefully back up for good!

    Re: Linda Offline - Connection Probs

    When I lived out in the country that was a frequent occurrence so I always have backup now; it comes in handy on occasion even in the city and it means I'm always portable with my laptop. I have a 10 port mobile hub which operates at 4G or LTE and is billed just like a cell phone at about $60 a month for generous bandwidth; lower options are available if you wish.

    You might want to look into getting one of those. When we travel, it means that both Mary Lou and I can always get wireless internet access for our laptops or her iPad and even our cell phones. I've found it to be pretty useful, even when I take my cart in for service. For workaholics like us whose business is on the net, it's a real godsend I think.

    For fellow Canadians, I got mine through Bell Mobility. Worth a look.

    Re: Linda Offline - Connection Probs

    I was looking for something like that when i went to Dad's but he was in country so no connections.

    But now think I want back up Internet here at home.
    What would I search for? What exact search term? Mobile hub?

    I also was just thinking about buying a tablet I could use with my existing cell connection through AT&T. With that I could also work when I'm away from office. But I just can't get used to a tiny cell.

    It's called a Novatel Wireless MiFi 2 TurboHub.

    You can connect up to 10 devices wirelessly and I can power it/recharge the battery via my USB connector.

    Re: Linda Offline - Connection Probs

    Fíng Time Warner! Down again and 24 hour ETA for a fix.
    And my phone is dead.

    But I figured out how to set up a WIFI hotspot via my phone. How come no one told me you can do that? This is the bomb!

    So am on my laptop. Need to check how much data I have, so not sure I can be on all day like usual.

    Also need to figure out how to set up on desktop. Am on laptop now but was in middle of a G+ post I need to finish on desktop.

    So pardon my dust while I try to configure some stuff so I can work again!

    Damn Time Warner!
