So as some of you may know, we recently switched internet providers. As a result, our wireless is now … well, slow. So slow. “I type a message on Skype and it takes five seconds to send” slow. My brother, who just turned seventeen and who loves Youtube videos, MMOs, and god knows what else, was obviously not going to stand for this for long. His solution: he ran an Ethernet cable from the new modem to his usual spot in our study.
More specifically, he ran a hundred-foot Ethernet cable from the back corner of our house, up the entertainment center, onto the second floor of the house, and into the study on the literal other end of the house.
That’s right. This cable now spans the entire length of our house, front to back.
PS: I asked him how much the cable cost. He said $25.
I’m considering it.
