I'm hoping to find some help dealing with internet related problems. This problem has been ongoing for years now and I'm quite frankly pissed the fuck off at this point. I have comcast as my ISP since I'm not aware of any better provider on cape cod otherwise I would jump to it immediately. I mainly play games on my computer that require constant internet and when I have it dropping several times a month for a couple hours at a time, it's inexcusable. My router is wireless and my room is about 8 feet from it. I usually only have 2-3 bars, 4 on a good day. Sometimes it'll be so bad that there will be a yellow triangle over where the bars are and it will say no internet connection. I have been told several times that it was my computer and not the internet provided.
Okay. I upgraded my computer last year to an alienware x51. Same problem still exists. It also exists on my laptop. The one computer that is hardwired to the router loads slow. I have called comcast several times and the last time they swapped out the router for the same model, an ARRIS TG862G/CT. When I asked the technician if he could move the router from the room it is in to my room and hook it up to my computer he said that I'd have to get an electrician to do that.
I have no clue what I should do. Should I call an electrician? Should I curse the technological overlords that monopolize the interwebs? All I want to do is be able to play some WoW or whatever in peace without fear of being disconnected or unable to even connect.
