As many of you know, Comcast is in the process of messing things up even more than it normally does.
Weirdly enough, on Friday night the signal coming out of our ancient, coal-powered Airport base station suddenly dropped to the point where I had to drag my laptop into the same room in order to get a decent connection. I’ve done enough testing to convince myself that it’s the base station and not the laptop. The situation persisted throughout the day on Saturday.
Last night, the problem appeared to have healed itself. Early this morning, too. But now the signal is back to being ridiculously weak.
The family iMac, connected directly to the cable modem, does not seem to be affected.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is my suspicion that it might be Comcast realistic, or does it stem from my near-total technological ignorance?
