I use Verizon Fios internet at home.
I received a notice that I must either update to a new router or Verizon would charge a monthly fee to maintain the one I have.
I opted to update and buy the new router which was probably a big mistake.
When I first booted it up all the lights were green except the “internet” light which was amber. Naturally I couldn’t get my computer to connect so I checked on-line and found this YouTube explanation.
First I went outside to see if the box with the buttons described in the video were there. Unfortunately when I opened the outdoor box it had a wasp nest and was filled with wasps who weren’t happy I had opened the box.
Actually the correct box is inside the living room just under the window. As the video instructed I held both blue buttons down until I heard a beep.
When I went back upstairs all the router lights were green but I still couldn’t get my computer to connect. (I had already connected my iPhone and iPad.) I turned off the computer and started it again this time logging on as administrator. The system allowed me to hook up.
Do you hesitate to get new technology? Or are you up to the minute?
