    Jacek battles her modem.

    I’ve been battling my cable modem for the past week and a half. It was getting into the habit of dropping my connection upwards of 80 times per day, so I’ve had to beat it into submission. It’s still a bit flakey, but not as bad as before.

    Unfortunately, this fiasco managed to prevent me from logging in to Second Life to teach my classes on Thursday and Friday—the first sessions of my new classes! Augh! I weep! My apologies to everyone who tried to attend—I can only assure you that only a situation of the most dire variety could keep me from my students! I have never missed teaching a class before—I know how frustrating it is when you show up for a class and wait around for half an hour with no sign of the instructor!

    Because I can’t be certain that my connection will be reliable, I have cancelled my Saturday class for this week. (I weep more!)

    I hope to be teaching again next week from March 8-10.

    I had the same thing happen with my cable modem. I ended it taking it back to Bombcast, ooops I mean Comcast, twice to get new ones. I finally found one that worked. Also I had been using an extension from where the cable came into my house to where the cable modem was. I now have my modem hooked up directly to where it comes in the wall (i.e. 2 inches away from the wall) and it has been pretty stable. Good luck, there is nothing more frustrating than hardware that is flakey.
