I never thought that I would miss the ability to be online every time I want. Using books to get information is not as fast as Wikipedia but still works 😀 . During the last two weeks our internet access at home was broken. Sometimes it works for some minutes after a modem reboot but most of the time we were not able to get online. No phone and no internet access.
Today two technicians (I think that those guys are from a contractor of Cablecom) with a huge measurement device checked the connection box. They found a gap in the signal and went to the basement to check and adjust the multiplexer. After some minutes the connection was OK but then the modem went down again. The guys went back to the basement and replaced the multiplexer. Another round of measurements…right now the connection is working (sort of).
