Being way out in rural nowhere one of the options for internet was a variation of a wifi system. Criteria was if you could get line of sight to grain tower (highest point for miles) you could get this service, so we did. Total fiasco, will drop whenever, sits and cooks bringing up sites for minutes on end the gives the famouns IE can not display webpage. One day I can get STEAM after about 5 login tries, then days pass till I can get it again.

So we have DISH network for TV (no cable available, nor DSL) and thier internet sister service 'Wild Blue' is the last option available. Hughes Net has us in a deadzone. So free hookup and bundled with TV $79.95 a month, will keep the other system for Anna's longer internet sessions. Will get game digital auth so can buy and use new games, can use STEAM for basic games, no online realtime, geekazoid who has system down the road says works far better than Speednet that local wifi system, and he has no problem with games that he plays. Had to get advice from a 15 year old on system, his only complaint is XBox Live is not supported.

So thursday installed and fingers crossed.
