Admin: Router Failing (Resolved)

After evaluating minor problems with networking here at home, I conclude that our router is starting to fail. It’s not dead, but it seems to be fading slowly.

We don’t have the money to buy another right now. If you have a spare to donate, I’d love to see if it will work for us. Otherwise, we would like to ask for donations to purchase a new one. I’ll take what I can get, the ideal is the Pepwave Surf SOHO because of it’s high security profile. It’s a commercial grade router and costs around $200. You can find it on Amazon and eBay if you want to buy it and send it to us. Still, I’ll take what I can get if it works.

Pray with us that the current one keeps working for now.

Update: (14:00 CDT 19 October 2019) We are half-way to buying the new router. Thank you, folks.

Update: (15:00 CDT 19 October 2019) See the comments below; the router is on it’s way. Thanks again, folks.

    Do you think this may help the connection issues you’ve been having?

    That was part of my reasoning about it failing. The other part was that the router no longer broadcasts it’s SSID, even though settings say it should. Several passive wifi devices have lost the connection, while the laptops with their more aggressive seeking are doing fine.
