    The internet!

    I wonder why it's so hard to set up high speed internet! My aunt is having it installed by the company she's buying it from, while I just installed mine myself.She always acts as if she knows what she's doing, so why does she need not to install it herself. She also has to pay for the installation too.

    What's the point of this thread??

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something

    Cable Internet isn't that hard to install, hell, with Windows XP/Vista, Linux, or OSX, its practically plug and play. Just plug the ethernet cable from your cable modem into your network card and the OS does the rest.

    DSL on the other hand is a (Expletive deleted) to set up, especially with a router.

    I'm a total idiot with these kinds of things, but I didn't have any trouble self-installing my DSL (saved me $120 not having someone from AT&T come out to do it); the only pain was not knowing exactly when the connection would be activated...hard to tell if it's done correctly when nothing happens for four or five hours.

    They CHARGE for installation? Wow, that is pretty much a unknown concept in Canada. Hell Shaw cable came and set up my cable, phone and internet for free, took about an hour, and then gave us 3 months free service because we bundled our package. And we only pay about 50 bucks a month.
