  My neighbors don't know yetSep 05, 2018 11:19 PM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:I managed to give my ISP's tech support the wrong apartment number today, and as a result—of what the tech did from his end before we caught my mistake—knock out my neighbors' WiFi. : o
 
That's according to the tech, anyway; in a first, both the neighbors have been out all day, so I haven't been able to check with them and ideally just guide them through what should be the quick process of setting their modem back up to work correctly again.
 
Sooo I've just been stressing about about this all day. ; P
 
On the plus side, assuming we do get their WiFi back up and running, thanks to the change I did eventually manage to make possible to my own WiFi setting, out neighboring WiFi signals will no longer be interfering with each other.
 
(Side note: landlords, if you include internet access and a modem with the apartment, make it clear to your tenants that they are *not* allowed to change the modem's internal login and password, because that prevents any later user/resident from doing something simple like changing the WiFi channel without having to call tech support, do a hard reset on the modem, and then work with tech support to reconfigure the modem. : PP)
