story telling...

i have been spending the last weekend setting up the wireless connection in my house. we tried before to set up last time which was almost 2 year ago. at that time, the computer shop's techinician who came to over house told us that he is unable to set up cos maybe the wireless router that we bought was probably spoilt or maybe even the laptop's wifi is spoilt, or so he said. so, we just left it as it is until a few days ago i thought about it. i was thinking there was another pc in our room which has been left untouched since we bought the new desktop almost 2 years ago and kj's bro's laptop was also left untouched. it was such a pity to leave it there so i might as well try again. so off i went to buy a long long network cable, 15 metres long and it's not cheap eh, cost me about RM48 for the CABLE!!! blehhh, and bought a network adapter too for the old pc (can guess how old is it, right? no network adpater one) so off i go back home happily arrange the cable nicely from downstair to upstair, climbing here and there. it was hardwork eh. then i tried to set up the ethernet modem first. was using the usb modem previously. tried this, tried that but seem unable to set it up, i thought it was quite easy to set up. was getting frustrated already then kj ask me to call our friend, philip for help. and voila, hahaha, after a few pointers from him, finally i got it. so simple actually. the modem was used by kj's bro last time, so the setting in the modem was all not ok for our pc. i just reset the modem and set this set that and everything done.

so next up is the wireless router. it was way more complicated than setting up the modem. i think i only got it halfway cos kj got a connection in his psp for a good 5 minutes, then nothing more, hahaha. googled up various way to help me but still cannot. call our friend again to disturb him but too bad, he is unable to help me much cos it's quite complicated to teach me when he couldn't see it but he did send me many links for me to go through. thanks again, yeah philip, so sorry to trouble you!! anyway, i got fed up with it and i packed the modem and router to another computer shop to let them configure for me. then i tried again at home but still cannot and in the end i packed EVEARYTHING, modem, router, cpu and laptop to the computer shop again. everything done, i went back home again and tried. #@^#%$*$%*%^*%. CANNOT!!!!! i called up the computer shop and they came to my house this morning to configure everything.

AT LAST, everything done. phewwww.. but that's not all, i tell you, not sure why the ppp page and msn cannot logged in. the technician also not sure why. so after he left, i googled again and finally find the solution and solved it myself.. great satisfaction there, i tell you, muahahahaha.. for those who are expert in all these, you will think it's just an easy job but at least for me, i feel great lor. so now all the pc in my house can connect to the net and the psp and the laptop can use the wireless connection. all thanks to my effort, hahahaha. and all these while what has the men in my house done? nothing, i tell you. and now after everything all done, they got to enjoy it effortlessly. i went buy everything myself, setting everything up, configure half of it myself, brought the cpu AND laptop to the computer shop all by myself (it's not easy, and it's heavy and the computer shop is inside a shopping centre and how i do it? haha, i throw everything inside the trolley) but at least kj has the heart to help me go and take it back. i tell you again, I FEEL GREAT!!!!! but one downside is, kj's pc is quite old so quite slow. it's a bit frustrating to use it sometimes but at least i can browse the web and msn in the comfort of my room.

i am now going to sleep now. i got headache and wanna vomit already. think i stared at the pc a bit too much and using my brain much more than usual...
