Our Internet service has been slower than molasses in January for the past few days. First I tested the individual components (cable modem, wireless base station), but they didn’t seem to be having problems, and the Internet as a whole, aside from some isolated problems, seemed to be OK too.

Then I turned off my wireless access and plugged directly into the router. Bing. Full connectivity. This is the second time the wireless card in this laptop has gone funky on me. I really don’t want to replace it right now, but I might not have a choice.
