big project at my house...and no broadband

When we bought this house we had eucalyptus floors installed in the living room and the dinning room. Now we are having it installed in the office, hallway, and kitchen. It will cover the entire ground floor with the exception of the bathroom. So tonight we hauled all the small stuff out and tomorrow the movers come to haul the big stuff. Unfortunately the cable modem is in one of those rooms!

So for the next week I'm on dialup. The imac dials into the isp, shares the connection via ethernet into a hub (so I can plug other stuff in) and from the hub into the airport base station. Oh, and the printer is plugged into the base station also. All in my living room looking surprisingly good. Slow though!

Soon my whole ground floor will look like my living room floor...

I would have found some way of mounting the cable modem and wireless router on a shelf up and out of the way of the workmen.

I agree with testcase.

I am soooo spoiled with broadband. I couldn't go back to dialup. I do too much business over the internet.

him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher

Yeah, I think I would have to find a way to keep that modem/router engaged. Good luck with the project.

Those floors look awesome. Can you do any type of Cell phone tethering? I have a sprint pocket pc phone and while the connection is not near the speed of my regular connection it's still pretty fast and only $15 a month unlimited from sprint.
