Meh. Our desktop computer got a virus on it about a week ago that was causing all kinds of crap, so we disconnected it from the internet while my dad tried to fix things. But, that's the computer that the rest of our computers are networked to, so we lost the internet on all of them. A couple days later, he hooked up the internet on my sister's laptop so that we could at least get online that way. And he finally got the desktop cleaned up a few days ago and set up our network again. But, for some reason, even though we can share files and such, we can't connect to the internet on any of the other computers. So my dad is trying to fix this too, but isn't sure what's wrong aside from the fact that it's a dns problem.

I dislike disruptions in my everyday routine though. :( Things are different. *panic* I'd been dealing with not having internet on my laptop thus far, but now I still don't know how long it will be til I have it back again. So I'm all meh. I guess it's good that I can still get online (especially since I'm taking an online class), but it feels out of place not having things the way they normally are. I can't do things the way I'm used to. I have a couple posts I wanted to make about Nightwish's new album and about something I just read in Philosophy (maybe there was a third thing too), but it feels weird composing stuff on this computer. It's probably just my weirdness though. I don't know, we'll see if I can get over this. There are worse things in life after all.

Why not just pick up a wireless router to run through to all the computers? That way you don't have to rely on the one to feed the internet to the others.

Because her laptop is too old. No Wi-Fi card, no port to install a new one.

It doesn't necessarily have to be wireless, but even my cheap old wireless router has 4 outgoing ports for hard-wiring, which I use for my desktop.
