I wanted you all to know that my router came and I installed it. Sort of. My computer is now receiving a wifi signal - maybe. I have a cable between the computer and the router.
Actually I'm a bit confused about what I did but the router told me I needed a link between the computer and or router or modem. I did what it said at the time and after rebooting it straightened out and I was able to access my web pages again.
My Kindle is connected, but again I am confused about this password and identity business. I left it on the default.
Have not yet connected anything else. Will get to it.
Having medical issues and just physically and mentally tired.
Thanks Draclvr and Winfrey and all who gave me their input to help me make this difficult decision. Just a little further and I will be all set.
