Attention all friends of Phat!!!
The Millennium Falcon is officially online!!! After a month of failed efforts to manually connect it to my router... I discovered that my router, even though it has four outputs on the back, is wifi only! SMH... total face palm... But, that led me to my current solution. I did NOT want to crack the case on this machine as it has been lovingly tweaked to maximum performance. Changes might mess that up. So, I searched for an external wifi adapter and found one at Walmart, delivered to my mailbox for a whopping $15.04, under eleven GBP!!! Huzzah!!! That card arrived in my box late yesterday afternoon. I just now installed it and we have wifi connection!!! Huzzah!!!
Still have a long row to hoe getting all the software installed. But, my largest hurdle, connecting a formerly wired connection only machine to the internet, has been leapt and bounded!!! Huzzah!!! Just wanted to say thanks to all my dear friends for your moral support through that trying time.
Adventure ever on, Phat
