Thirty Fifth Journal Entry

Mood: Exasperated
Listening to: Windows Reboot Sound (over and over)

Computers can be a real hassle sometimes. Target had a sale on Acer laptops for $199. So, we got one. It worked fine for a few days, and then it just conked out on me. The router would detect fine, but it would report that it was an unknown network with no internet (despite the fact that the name was displayed). It turns out Windows 7 gets confused with the switch that some routers have to connect to multiple computers and tries to connect to them. So, I had to set the default gateway manually. It took me quite a few hours and multiple websites and attempts to fix it before I finally found this bit of info. Hopefully it will stay fixed now.
