Thursday 2nd September 2010, Burnett Heads.
Thursday already? Where does the time go? We have been rather busy since being here as I have upgraded my mobile broadband internet unit, and is it faster, my word. Between making the actual purchase, getting it up and running, and organising an external aerial patch cable for it I haven’t had a great deal of time for anything else. I couldn’t believe how much difference the external aerial made to this unit, it took me about 3 days to actually get the patch cable and I was cursing, of sorts, that the new unit wasn’t any faster than the older one was, although it often tried, then the external aerial was connected. Just to explain why the aerial is so important:- We live in a caravan, with an aluminium cover all over that is earthed electrically, and this alone will limit the amount of signalling that will pass to the unit, so an external aerial, I consider, is a must especially when in fringe areas as well, and would you believe my connection speed multiplied by 5 times or more and I actually reached the magic figure of 8MEG as advertised, very surprising.
So now it is back to a normal life of enjoying the relaxation, and thinking about where we are going on our next legs of travel.
