February 2007, I bought a Dell laptop, Linksys Router and Linksys Wireless card, all new. I had to call Linksys about every 3 or 4 weeks because the card would just stop finding the router. The router was encrypted and password protected since day 1. So about a week ago I tried to log on through the laptop and nothing happened. Scanned for hours, never finding my network. The same night, my neighbor who lives upstairs tells me how he found a "Free" wireless connection and it was really fast. I get on my PC, look at the network, and I'm looking at his pictures on his desktop. Powered everything down, unplugged the router, hardlined the connection back through the modem, and powered back up. Wackbag was taking about 4 minutes to load now. And I don't have that kind of time, I have post whoring to do. Anywho. Called cable, scheduled a tech to come out. Seems that Linksys' POS router FRIED my Ethernet Card. So they fixed my shit, new card, and are coming next week to hook up my wireless network. Moral of this story: How does my neighbor access a "Secure" network, and end up not allowing me to access the network? How does a router FRY a network card, by just being unplugged? FUCK YOU LINKSYS, RIGHT IN YOUR FUCKING ASSES!!!
