Now you see me, Now you don’t

Peek-A-Boo! Just testing my online connection. My internet connection has been giving me problems since the 5th of December. Its driving me crazy!

Have called up the call centre so many times. Have you checked your cables? It must be your modem. Maybe its the splitter. Aarrrgh! I even brought the modem to the shop to have it checked but they said it was fine so will you just get your technician down here prompto instead of asking me the same questions each time I call?

Have you checked  your cables Miss? Did you try to connect direct? Can you press Start, Accessories then go to Command Prompt. Blah blah blah. Well, it can’t be my modem  or cables or splitter right or not, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to get online now. The man at the shop told me that if my modem is about to go it will die right away and won’t act half dead so its not the modem.

My phone line was out before but its working fine now. But that darned internet connection…. So better quickly reply to all my comments, answer my email etc etc before it goes off again. So now  you see me but next  you won’t.

Oh, btw, this contest closes on 20th December. So hurry up, support and join lah. There is only one contestant at the moment, so the chances of winning is very high. Less man, more chances. Thats the way with contests. 😉

Right, better publish this before I lose my internet connection again. The internet light is blinking weakly again.

  1. I had lots of problem with my connection at one point too. Both the phone line and internet service provider guys came to the house to check SEVERAL rounds and nothing was fixed! In the end we called in 3rd parties to come and fix the problem. Can you imagine that?!

    Oh dear, thats awful!

  2. ahhh… that’s what they tell us each time we call the internet service provider so I’m guessing we both use streamyz 🙂 In our case, the “extra phone line and the internet line was too close and it sometimes short circuit” whatever that means! so you may wanna look out your window and see if the lines are “too close”. the other way to check is to see if your modem stops when you use your phone (but it doesn’t happen everytime) so need some sleuthing 🙂

    I don’t have an extra phone line for streamyx. We use one line only. Anyway I discovered the culprit already. Its the modem afterall.
