This just blows.

So, long story short, my internet connection is fucked. Has been for a few days now--and my grandmother, despite my constant reminding, is showing no sign, nor interest, in getting someone to look at it. Thus, I've had to resort to my current alternative: accessing the internet through my Nintendo Wii. This is problematic for many reasons.

Firstly, I have no way of accessing files on my computer--thus, I can't upload images and send files. Second, I can't easily access multiple websites at a time; just one website at a time can cover my TV screen. Third, and most annoying, is that I can't easily type things, which is why my posts have been relatively short as of late. See, in order to type on the Wii, you need to click on a text field, and then point-and-click your message on an on-screen keyboard. It's less than easy, to say the least. This post alone has taken me 15 minutes to write. Not only that, but my arm is tired.

This sucks. I want to get back to griefing people on Second Life.

Bitches love me 'cause they know I'm on time.

Re: This just blows.

Can't you plug in a USB keyboard? That's what I do with my 360.

With the 360 though not having a usb isnt a bbig problem, you can just type on the screen with the control, i cant imagine how tiring interactive web browsing is

Re: This just blows.

It's still a pain-staking process, having to go through and select each individual character.

I know how hard it is on the Wii though, I sympathise with you. For what it's worth.

If you internet is stuffed, how are you on your Wii, on the internet?

Re: This just blows.

That's what i'm saying, if your on the Wii surely your connection is fine, you just need to find the problem, but seeing as Troubleshooters usually suck, i suggest trying to explain the full problem in Technology.

Re: This just blows.

The Wii uses this magic Wi-Fi doohickey to get to the intertron. I think it's a problem with our router that makes it not work on our PCs--even though I've spent literally hours fooling with it and even tried a different one. :l

Re: This just blows.
