Modem Woes

The Sunday before last I noticed that my Kindle was not connecting to the internet via my WAP. I investigated and YIKES! My modem was dead!

I called AT&T tech support and arranged to have a new modem overnighted to me. Since I suspected the modem's power supply might be the failing component, I ordered a new one from Amazon. In the meantime I hooked up an old DSL modem I had in my closet. It worked like a champ. I'm still using it for now actually.

When the power supply arrived I tested my modem with and, yes, my modem was alive.

So... now I have 3 functional DSL modems and am out $100+ for the new modem.

But you know... whatever it takes to be online. Am I right?
