Last night’s storm knocked the electricity out of virtually all of Sterling, except my condo complex, it seems. Unfortunately, the price I paid for this is a fried modem. It accepts the AT init strings and everything, and will carry the dialtone — I can plug a phone into the out jack and get a dialtone — but the modem itself won’t detect the tone.
Thus, I am in the market for a new modem.
From Best Buy’s website:
There is humour somewhere, in this statement, but it eludes me.
The necessity to buy a new dialup modem. It’s so… demeaning.
