Wifi gadgets are cool! They control our music, thermostat, parental controls, indoor & outdoor lighting and various wireless speakers. Wifi gadgets are cool except when you don’t have Wifi!
Everyone has gone through this same scenario. You have had Wifi set up in your home for months, maybe years, and one day kablooey! Nothing works. no internet connection, no Sonos, wifi speakers, Nest thermostat, GoPro.. yeah nothing. It’s rub two sticks together time and hope for the best.
After trying to figure it out by re-plugging and reconnecting it is inevitable to have to make the call. (FIOS)
You call your provider and they run you through the same scenario. “Have you changed anything lately?” NO! I haven’t. If I had I would know by deductible reasoning that it was I who screwed everything up. “Can you unplug and re-plug your router?” Already beat you to it. Did that, no change. “I need you to do it again.” OY!
Wifi gadgets are cool except when you don’t have Wifi.
After 20 minutes “Everything seems to be working correctly.” except it isn’t working… not even correctly. “Let me run a diagnostic test.” Another 10 minutes. “The diagnostic checks out fine.” Uhuh, so…. any other options?
“let me try changing the channel it is on.” No idea what that means but ok.
Voila! Like magic the connection is made!
Do you think I got an answer as to why our channel needed to be changed?
But Wifi gadgets are cool again.
