Technology tantrum


A few weeks ago we got a letter and an email explaining that Orcon was taking over Telecom’s rural wireless network and that we should check our email settings to ensure we would continue to be able to send and receive emails.


There is a long story of time wasting frustration involving several calls to the help-line. The shorter version is we are now back to dial up speed with lots of can’t-find-website-check-you-are-connected messages; the house computer can send and receive emails, eventually after several disconnects but the office computer can only send.


I don’t know if the problem is with Telecom or Orcon but I’m not very impressed with either of them – and wireless help desks don’t work in the evening.
