Just you and Me?! No one else in my area that uses Wi-Fi has any service today. I am using an old password protected device that plugs directly into the computer so it can receive and transmit.
There hasn't been any Wi-Fi none wired service available for several days now.
3 days ago I was chatting with a tech at the company. We were trying to find out why I couldn't get a web page to open with the alternate Hotspot set up on the device I have.
None, not even Forums.nexusmods. com.
When I clicked on the Wi-Fi search to locate the Hotspot from the device I have; over a dozen Wi-Fi seekers appeared and it was so crowded when I was typing in the password the other Wi-Fi systems bumped my Wi-Fi devices Sign In address out of position while was attempting to sign in on the Hotspot.
For the last 3 days, I tried to get my own handy mobile Wi-Fi device to work in Wi-Fi mode. I have noted there has not been any others.
Today only one other person must have been testing their Wi-Fi because they dropped off only seconds as I was testing mine.
It appears there is no DNS available for these Wi-Fi devices. I can't get a link to a DNS. Doesn't matter though. Not even a battery powered mobile hand held unit with 4 and 5 G is getting me connected using Wi-Fi. I had to use a different router set up to connect directly to the computer and by pass the towers Transceiver.
I was about to quit messing around with anything when I tried another method. Even though I could not get a strong enough signal to connect to a DNS at the moment. I was trying to get a speed test.
I wanted to sort the game esps and esms and I forgot I had left it on. I clicked on the MO2 sort function and it got a connection to Github and sorting worked. I thought I had some new direct line from the computer for a couple seconds. Then I realized what I had done, because I shut the computer down to reset it, if it was bugged somehow.
When I rebooted the computer I was informed a device was not allowing my computer to shut down. I immediately recognized what it was.
I clicked it off.
Started up again. When I got the portable device out and did the thing with that other connector for getting Online it worked!
I checked the seek Wi-Fi for a Wi-Fi device; to see if anyone of the other people with Wi-Fi home type gear; that is supposed to work without a wired connection I noted not one of the usual 6 or 7 with password protection was in the search box.
Nobody else has Wi-Fi either. The Tech support team is back up so far I would have been waiting on the phone line for hours.
I'm sure glad I keep my good stuff back from our early Internet days. I needed a device that can use the type of link I have that works to make it password protected.
