Difficult week

It's been a difficult week, I have had a few IT puzzles to solve, but mostly just been watching the news, and the amazing pictures from S E Asia.

I have been very pleased with the way all of us in the UK have responded, I was busy yesterday but was amazed when I heard on the radio that the money donated from the public had rose above £25 Million.

Why is it that broadband Modem/routers seem to have an astonishingly failure rate. And I don't mean after they have been used. In the last year I must have dealt with 8-12 router/modems which are broken straight out of the box.

And it doesn't seem to be just one manufacturer, it is all of the popular makes. So just a warning to anyone thinking of getting one, if the modem part doesn't work to begin with get it changed don't let the sales people tell you to check this or that with your ISP, just change it.

I have yet to find a broken Belkin ADSL Modem/Wireless Router
