Networking = Pain In The Arse

Computers can be a pain in the arse sometimes.

I’ve just changed my Mobile Broadband supplier from Three – and boy, they did not want me to go – to Orange. Instead of the temperamental connection I was getting, I now have a pretty darn good 4 or 5 bar connection. I think it helps that I live just one street from the transmitter (!).

Except… I kept getting kicked off the connection every few minutes. And every so often, the PC would freeze. This was really annoying. I tried it in my buggered old laptop, and there are no problems. So it would seem to be the USB hub in my PC.

So what I have had to do is network them together, accessing the interwebnet through the laptop. Using a wire like in the olden days.

There must be a simpler way to do this.
