Back home. To wireless broadband!

Which is actually not all that it is cracked up to be. For a while the network’s been running unsecured and I am guessing the neighbour people would have been having a field day with it. When I first got home, it was in this state and the connection was rocking. Rock solid stability, and blazingly fast.

And then I had to do it. I switched on 128 bit encryption and all sorts of other paranoid niceties, and in general it doesn’t seem as spiffy. That and I am having some other channel issues. Generally not as stable as I’d like it to be.


Update: I think it is fixed. In a moment of weirdness, it assumed one of the neighbours connections was the “preferred default”. Which meant at regular intervals it would get off this, and try to get onto that. Got booted off obviously.

It is pretty sweet.
