I KNEW it wouldn't be easy gettig a laptop to just connect to the wireless router,. The laptop asks questions I can't answer. Verizon said it would just ask for a "SSID and a "WEP KEY". Yeah, ROTFLMAO! Worse, it offers options I don't understand. Even WORSE. I think it is offerring me connections to all the neighborss' wi-fi (and one is either very innocent or downright dirty). I don't want to know that stuff.
But I can't get the laptop working and I used
up the battery earlier, so it is charging again (and I'll leave it
connected). I'll call Apple after it is charged. I think I know the
right details for Verizon. Its the laptop questions I need help with.
is why I didn't do this before. Any two pieces of computer equipment
do NOT want to talk to each other... And I'll mention again MY BAD
LUCK on minor things like this...
Need to do live chat
with Apple and that typing kills me. I bet they tell me to talk to
Verizon. That makes me the bouncing ball between the two of them...
UPDATE! With the hour-long struggle with the Verizon tech help (as opposed to the USELESS TWO hours of non-help from Apple) we have achieved LAPTOPNESS! I have to say that no matter what the problem and whether it was actually a Verizon issue or not they have helped me through thick and thin. And yes it is 11:30 AM here and I've been up ALL NIGHT again, struggling with computer challenges , but it was worth it (as it usually is when successful)!
And I have to say my $200 cheapo refurbished MacPro 13" laptop is acting SUPERBIO-PRIMO!
The next comments you get are going to be laptomese and I think The Mews will love it too!
