It has been a long two weeks. I am without Internet and it has taken me several days to figure out where the problem is located. A technician came to check the tower, but he couldn’t find a problem. However he did not understand the configuration or know to how to check for other problems.
In Nicaragua, service is inefficient, disorganized, and slow. We have learned that if you need to fix something, you must learn to repair it yourself. I played detective for several days, unplugging cables and moving my router…to no avail.
The owner of GGnet refuses to answer my texts or telephone calls. His technician, who came to look at the tower said he would return later that day, and we haven’t seen him since. I discovered long ago that mañana means today, tomorrow, next week, or months from today…sometimes it means never.
If they don’t have a solution for a problem, they will tell you what you want to hear, just to save face. Can you tell I am frustrated? I think I found the problem. The network adapter box is fried. So, I am going to Rivas to buy another network adapter box.
I have learned not to rely on anyone else to fix my internet problems. So, my wonderful readers, please be patient with me. I am at an Internet cafe learning how to use my new iPad, and I am not sure how this post will look. It took me forever to remember my administrative password.
I hope to have my internet fixed soon. Self sufficiency is the key to a good life in Nicaragua. Stay tuned for more stories and photos…as soon as I figure out how to transfer my photos from my computer to my iPad. 🙀
