Well, when I got Netgear on the phone, the guy, who, no offense but he spoke with an "accent", kept putting me on hold cuz I could tell he was clueless. Then at some point, the tech person changed, but still sounded about the same, ie same country , I mean "accent". india He's insisting I need a password from my ISP provider (Verizon), so I had to get another phone with speaker capability and get them on the line. An hour+ later on this particular call, Netgear boy determined the router was bad, which I had pretty much figured out before even getting on the phone with him. And I'm kind of technologically challenged. And now I'm probably covered in layers of dust from crawling under my desk and rerouting wires a few dozen times. And I was having horrible issues earlier in the day, and I haven't seen a YouTube video in weeks. Logged on tonight after bypassing the router, and got to watch the first video that came up on YT tonight, no problems

<<<needs a drink

Almost every freakin' time I have to call American Express, I swear I get someone with an Indian accent ... so why do they still call it "American Express"?

It's quite frustrating. I had spoken to 2-3 people, and I was saying to myself how refreshing that I could understand everyone clearly. By the time we got to persons #4 & 5, I was really angry & frustrated.

So, I will have to go out tomorrow, or have hubby go & pick up a router. I'll call my computer store in the morning. I think they told me this evening I may need replacement batteries for my backup power sources. The power went out today for a minute, and both computers went off. With the backup, I should have about 20 minutes to save everything and turn the computer off, but that didn't happen

I hadn't heard about battery packs for routers...because whenever our power goes out the internet does wacky things as well.

No, the battery is a whole separate issue.
The router is dead. DEAD to me. I've apparently had it 7+ years. Verizon person recommended Linksys or DLink as my next router. I will see what the store says in the morning.

My parents have Linksys.

7 years is a long time to have a router! We had our replaced after about 4...if even that long.
