Day 262

I found 1 penny at Wendy’s and 1 dime at work.

Once again, we are having cable issues. Charter is supposed to be out tomorrow to fix the issue. If this keeps up, I am going to be looking to a switch to DSL. I was only able to get online tonight, because I found an unsecure wireless connection in the apartment complex.

Total for the Day - $0.11
Total for the Race - $72.21

Slam my dile up all you want, but slow and steady beats tapping an unsecured line any day.

Can you get FiOS?

Bailey said...

I looked online for a cable repeater, but I couldn't find it.

What is FIOS? Same thing?
What is the exact name of what you got?

Tex said...

FiOS = Fiber Optics 4mbps up/ 4 mbps down. It's from Verizon, if you have that down there. If it's SBC, I'm sorry.

I checked and mine is a channel master active cable amplifier. It has a transformer for power, a single input and 4 outputs. A picture is hard to find on the net, but here is a link to generally what you are looking for.


Good Luck

I found the Cable Amplifier at Lowes. If all of them are the same, it should be on aisle 2 on the electrical aisle. Phillips Magnavox makes it and it should be right about the cable splitters.
