I have a story for you today about my overworked wifi router. (Spoiler: this story really isn’t about my router. :) )
A couple of weeks ago my router was giving me major problems – among other things, some of my devices kept dropping their wifi connections.
It was as if they WANTED to connect, but they just couldn’t.
I’d see the wifi icon pop on and I’d start working, but then my laptop would suddenly starting buffering and it would fall back off – honestly it was driving me a little crazy.
(Don’t you just hate watching that buffering icon rotate around and around?!)
Anyway, on the one device that magically did connect, I searched online for a way to fix the problem. Nothing I did seemed to make a difference.
I got so fed up that I shut everything down. EVERYTHING. Even my router.
Then I worked out (best stress reliever ever!) and a little later, I turned everything back on.
